  2. Re: Mind Trapped by: Fake science Journal articles, and it's effect on acceptable evi

  10. Re: 2 Broke Girls' gets FCC complaints for raunchy humor

    Why is it impractical? My parents had no difficulty doing so and there were no parental control systems in TVs back then. Maybe if parents don't give their children their own TVs, then they would...

    It is the responsibility of the viewer and the parent to regulate what they watch and the corporation has the freedom to air what they want. No need for an FCC which is really just censorship and...

    Re: Should the House Defund Obamacare?

    Your words, not mine. Don't put words in my mouth, I can speak better for myself than you can. Without Obamacare, people who can't pay still get healthcare, so your argument is invalid and irrelevant...

    The problem comes when one "free riders" is used as justification to shove obamacare down our throat, when in fact, it may not be needed.

  23. Re: If the Christian God actually exists, then why are there so many non-believers?

    There are an abundance of arguments for the existence of God and thousands of claimed miracles. There are also historical claims of revelation. All of these are ultimately beyond the scope of this...

  25. Re: If the Christian God actually exists, then why are there so many non-believers?
