    Sticky: Re: Friday/Saturday/Sunday morning preaching.

    Ok, first of all, I didn't lose my car. I had it chopped up. I could have changed my mind and not taken it to the scrap yard, but it was time - and I had already bought a new car. Well, a new second...
  2. Re: The latest anti-liberal rant thread (get your daily dose here)

    This is objectively false.


    This is a derogatory term, as it is a play on Pax Romana - which was peace for the Romans, and screw the rest. As far as conquered territories were concerned, peace...

    Re: Poland: Popular protests against abortion ban.

    I don't get it, shouldn't this abortion be sanctioned by the law, if it permits abortion if the mother's life is in danger? In this case it might even have saved the second foetus.

    And this is...

    The first of the above is part of both liberal and leftist thought, and the second I would class squarely as a liberal issue, not a leftist one. And I would also be remiss if I did not point out that...

    Only Biden could answer that question, because only he - and maybe those closest to him - knows the sum of candidates he had in consideration. But all you need to know is this: the President freely...

    You mean freely in and out in front of the police. I can't help noticing that the police are forming a line through which no one passes. A small number of doorways is far easier to protect than many.

    Correction: "I will pick a female judge, if there are any good candidates". Not "come hell or high water". To some district courts, for example, Biden only nominated men.

    Re: On the morality of evolution

    Morality is a collective thing, with individual building blocks. Every person manages to justify his actions to himself, and so he is moral according to his own code. But if other individuals...
  15. Re: Who's responsible for gender roles? Biology or Society?

    I'm sorry, but you did not account for that. You are still using randomised populations.

  16. Re: Who's responsible for gender roles? Biology or Society?

    But the judges aren't picked at random. I don't know how big a pool Biden had to choose from, but it stands to reason that he could freely pick from the cream of the crop, whether male of female. So...

    So Morticia's idea of housework and child rearing is sitting lazy on one's ass at home eating pralines and drinking prosecco. If so, why is she complaining women do 60% more of this than men?
  19. Re: President Biden's first year in office

    Muscles and testosterone did not happen to allow men to overpower women. Nor is that how gender roles arose. Sexual dimorphism evolves for a reason. Men didn't randomly evolve to have protective...

    I don't think anyone is suggesting traditional gender roles aren't affecting people's choices. But traditional gender roles are not inherently sexist - it is the insistence that people cannot or must...

    The problem with that narrative is that you Christians tend to claim there is such a thing as objective morality, which means it cannot change. So that begs the question: why wasn't forgiveness and...

    Now, that's sexist.
