    The divide between America's liberals and conservatives

    Since Walker survived re-election, I've seen a lot of talk on the internet about how conservatives are marginalized and dismissed (again, on the internet). I don't know how much of that is true, but as a liberal, I would like to reach out to my conservative brethren and look for common ground...

    Convincing an Alien

    I have a question for the theists, if you'll humor me. You meet a man from another world. The man knows of biology, chemistry, physics, cosmology, etc. He's been alive for centuries; he's seen people be born and die. He's seen planets and solar systems. How exactly would you go about...

    P.R status issue

    I'm not sure if anyone here even cares, but eh, I'll figure I'll throw it out there anyway. It's something I talked to John and Sarah about. Basic background information you need to know is that there are 3 basic Puerto Rican parties that represent the 3 possible futures for Puerto Rico: the...

    Gay Marriage in D.C.

    BBC News - Couples claim Washington's first gay marriage licences BAM! Anti-gay protesters aren't even trying anymore. "America's doomed"? Holy hell, I yawn just thinking about it. I like how they think empires can fall within a single generation because of a single social issue. It'd be...

    Direct Democracy

    We talked a little about this in the Lisbon Treaty thread, but I found this a bit disconcerting: BBC News - Swiss voters back ban on minarets My point is that this is exactly the major flaw with a direct democracy; majorities are free to trample on minorities. I mean, for all of America's...

    Third-party MP3 Player

    It's in the title. You technology geniuses, what third-party mp3 player would to recommend to someone wholly ignorant of this subject? EDIT: Third party here means not Zune or iPod, btw.

    Turin shroud

    BBC NEWS | Europe | Scientist reproduces Turin shroud I rather like the quote there: "If they don't want to believe carbon dating done by some of the world's best laboratories they certainly won't believe me." Luigi Garlaschelli Thoughts?

    The Lisbon Treaty

    So I assume some of you have already heard; the Irish voted Yes on Lisbon, and now the only impediments for its implementation are the Czechs and the Polish, and if it goes on long enough, the British. Now, I was reading the comments after the vote, and I was a bit surprised to see that the...

    Quantum Physics

    Thought about hijacking ∞'s thread, but didn't want to derail it too much. So I made this topic to ask a very selfish question: Can someone explain quantum physics to me in small, kindergarten words? Every time I think I understand part of it, it turns out to be horribly wrong and I feel like...

    Rejection doesn't sound like fun times

    "Have you ever gotten rejected by a person you really liked beyond the physical attraction? If so, how did you deal with it?" Not that it's happened, mind you, but I'm sort of preparing mentally for it so I can keep the "crying alone in my shower" bit to a minimum. So discuss.

    Support of creationism among scientists

    "The level of support for creationism among relevant scientists is minimal. Only 700 out of 480,000 U.S. earth and life scientists gave credence to creationism in 1987,[21] representing about 0.146% of relevant scientists. In 2007 the Discovery Institute reported that about 600 scientists signed...

    Search results didn't come up with anything, so I made a new thread. So, the new season looks like it's going to be plenty of awesome. Can't wait to see how the new Lockon and Feldt interact.

    Lying

    Lying is a sin, guys, and we should stop it. I will prove it is a sin: I have 100 times the verses on lying than I have on homosexuality, so lying should be 100 times worse! It is said that 4 billion people out of 6 billion people have actually lied once.... and the 2 billion are just babies...

    Jesus' genealogy

    Made a new thread so it doesn't go too off topic. You know, nice post, but you forgot one teensy, small little thing: JOSEPH IS NOT JESUS' FATHER God made it pretty clear that it had to be David and Solomon's physical offspring: Psa 132:11-12 The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will...
