    Amanda,

    I’m not surprised that Hobby Lobby is funding those trips to Israel. I’ll bet you’re given a very distorted view of history when you go on them, especially when it comes to the Israeli / Palestinian conflict.

      Meh, I used to support the Palestinians. But then I noticed everything they were saying was stuff white people either did to Indians, or accused Indians of doing. And that this applied equally to other indigenous peoples. Or just way ‘out there’ stuff.

      Also, this:

        I find it very strange that he was assassinated, but Wikipedia mentions nothing about his death other than date and “assassinated”

        Also, what are we supposed to take from that article?

    Many people have the misconception that science is built around proving things, when it’s more nuanced to say science works by disproving things. A good scientist does their absolute best to get their theory to fail. It’s like a maze. There are lots of dead ends, ones that sometimes take a LONG time to get to, and we must be willing to go back and start over. The ones who are not willing to do this will eventually get left behind and fade away while the rest march forward.

    Mad Max has EELS!!!

    “[Everyone] in the world will never be able to see a real action movie ever again that doesn’t contain some damn political lecture or moray about feminism, SJW-ing, and socialism.”,

    I read the MRA rant. Seems the author harbors this fantasy that I’ve run across before.

    The idea is that when the apocalypse comes we will return to the ‘natural’ order of things and women will become sex slave baby machines who depend on the protection of men to stay safe.

    Any depiction of a different scenario is propaganda and should be boycotted at all costs.
