  1. Re: Want to rant about rightwings and conservatives? This is your thread.

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

    I think the text is very clear and seems the “context” you’re applying is read into it rather than derived from it. If the basis of your position is that you or other born again individuals have a...
  4. Sticky: Re: Friday/Saturday/Sunday morning preaching.

    The timelessness of eternity does not negate the nature of prophecy or the words of Scripture. The Bible must form the sole basis of doctrine and interpretation, not appeals to the consequences of...

    Re: Small Orthodox corner

    You could compare it to that, and maybe it’s similar to what some Muslims believe about icons. But in a general sense, he’s right (Exodus 20:4, Deuteronomy 5:8) Where I would draw the line is at the...

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

    We know from Romans that whoever believes in Jesus according to God’s purpose are called. In Acts 2, Peter is addressing a crowd of people that had gathered.

    He is telling the crowd that whoever...
  8. Sticky: Re: Friday/Saturday/Sunday morning preaching.

    You can’t really lecture people for not believing in God and then turn around and say no one can believe in God unless God makes it possible, as if God is predestining people to be saved or damned a...

    Re: On the Justifiability of Riots

    If we are only to concern ourselves with polities that are at least structurally insulated against justified rioting, but rioters consider those structures unreachable as you say, even with your...
  10. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    I don’t really have an OP in the current discussion since it began at some point months ago, but in a general context, I think I can summarize by answering your question, “Is it that lockdowns don't...

    That’s an easy one for me. Same place I’ve been:

  12. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    Fine, then most of Europe is western Europe since most European countries are west of Finland, and you’re even more wrong than before.

    I included Greece, and including Finland still has me...

  14. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    The selection of adjacent countries with similar language, culture, and customs could be systematic in a general sense, sure. Shame this is a government policy discussion, not anthropology. Exclusive...
  15. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    You haven’t given any actual evidence the samples used in the research I cited are flawed, or that the methodology lacked controls for these incomparable “differences” you’ve apparently proven to be...
  16. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    If there’s “no sense” in making direct comparisons between countries, that doesn’t mean countries are incomparable. It means your argument is inherently anecdotal.
  17. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    Gainsaying is not an argument. The selection bias doesn’t necessarily arise from the inclusion of Scandinavian countries, but from exclusion. Comparisons with neighboring countries doesn’t justify...
  18. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    I’m not arguing anything in particular with regards to Sweden. The latter was an anecdote raised by my interlocutor as a strawman to avoid things like this:

    I understand your intuition on the...
  19. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    Comparing countries with similar levels of development and population wouldn’t justify limiting a sample that includes Sweden to only Denmark, Norway and Finland. The HDI rating of Nordic countries...

  21. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    Ludicus already pointed this out. You can make up any reason you want for cherry picking countries to fit a narrative. I stick with the representative samples used in the empirical research I’ve...
  22. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    Most major countries in the world did lockdowns. And? Some of studies I’ve cited and you continue to ignore look at samples of 50-160 countries.

    It was. You even added “UK” to the title of the...

    With any luck, she is the steno pool. I can’t picture that airheaded mindset surviving a background in counter terrorism. Of course, anything is possible these days.
  25. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    Trump, like Sweden, ceased to be a timely part of the Covid conversation long ago, and I’d challenge you to find a recent example on the forum of someone defending one of Trump’s Covid gaffes, or...
  26. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    Again, the only person “in love with the Swedish model” here is you, because knocking over that strawman absolves you from having to defend your debunked claims or address anything I’ve said.

  27. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    “Not true - reality check” followed by irrelevant deflections and strawmen is not a response, let alone a rebuttal, of the cited research. It would seem endless gainsaying is all your contribution to...

    They’re supposed to call Lebron James to review the situation first.
  29. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    If that were the case, you wouldn’t need to constantly deflect from that evidence by shouting “Libertarian” ad nauseam. Gainsaying is not an argument.

    This helps my case, not yours. As you admit...
  30. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    At last, we agree. The repeated rejection of empirical evidence in order to perpetuate your false narrative is childish, immature (bit redundant, no?) and arrogant.

    I learned this in a graduate-level seminar taught by a Turkish professor who is an expert on the Ottoman Empire during World War I. You don't get very far in academia spouting out myths; peer...

  33. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    Knocking over that strawman doesn’t even help your case.

    Don’t you think you’ve worn out that particular strawman by now? Having repeated it for weeks on end each time your latest convoluted...

    I claim total heroic victory and accept Ludi’s unconditional surrender.
  35. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    So again, you categorically reject facts just because you don’t like them, and deflect to an irrelevant tangent, citing a case study on the government’s overall performance in the UK, a country that...
  36. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    Gainsaying is not an argument, and this isn’t the first time you’ve flat out rejected facts just because you don’t like them.

    You can cherry pick all you want but your Sweden talking point went...
  37. Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    Repeating your self-refuting argument ad nauseam is still self-refuting, not to mention unfalsifiable. Your “no true scotsman” approach to dismissing inconvenient data with nebulous appeals to...

    Re: Death of George Floyd and Subsequent Riots.

    The implication of both your objections and the “fact check” is that the incident did not occur/Floyd was not directly responsible. He is the “largest of these suspects” named in the report. He was...

    It’s actually even more ridiculous than that. The “fact check” claims the story is false because it was evidently accompanied by a mis attributed photo in a social media post. But Abdul is right....
