Atheism can exist with or without the knowledge of theism, and doesn’t require the ignorance of it. One difference is that by default all babies are atheists, it’s the natural state of humanity, and you have to brainwash kids into believing in theism. I would speculate animals are atheists too are to the extent of their cognition.

Reuters article: Immigrants pay big for basics at private lock-ups

This practice is exploitative, and prisons need to be run by the government, not private companies. Most of these “illegal immigrants” are good people who are willing to contribute to the economy, but if you don’t treat them like humans and throw them in lousy prisons you could break them down.

Remember a borg cube will land on Jerusalem

Regardless of whether the city is 1,400 miles or 1,500 miles in length and width, it is shaped like a cube  (pic source here). This means New Jerusalem is larger than India with nearly 2 million square miles. These measurements are meant to be literal since they are described as man’s measurements (Rev. 21:17).

1951 Sci-Fi Censorship: “Only God can resurrect”

I just found out this tidbit when reading about “Scandinavian aliens.” The 1951 movie “When the Earth stood still” contains a bit of religiously motivated censorship. There’s a part where Gort dies and comes back to life, and the movie censors forced them to add a line that says he only temporarily came back to life, because only God had that power.

Nowadays its common for beings to come back to life in fantasy or science fiction movies. What terrible times the 1950’s were; I don’t think it’s right to glorify those days!

The right has given up everything it stood for

“I have tried to get DSA people to explain the details of their platform, and I never get any real answers.”

“Be sure to let us know if you have any more luck getting explanations on the Right. Because everything conservatism used to stand for — free trade, limited government, balanced budgets, opposition to Russian aggression, respect for tradition and the rule of law, personal responsibility and rectitude, etc. — has gone by the boards in today’s Republican Party.” -Ken of the internet

 

What a great quote!

Katelyn Ohashi’s dance routine

I don’t usually pay any attention to gymnasts, but it was impressive how she mixed her movements with dance. She said she was badly injured and dropped down from more competitive gymnastics, but felt more liberated as a result. She also said that she was often criticized as fat, and honestly I was surprised too because you have an image of gymnastics having skinnier figures.
