    lol I'll give you credit for one thing Jim. When you buy into something; you REALLY buy into it.

    Rick DeLano’s Terrific Quantum Science Film Tainted by Catholic Nonsense |454|

    I didn't think it was pointless. I think the default position that a religious person isn't "developed enough" to have considered their own position is ridiculous. I don't dismiss a Christian/Muslum/Jew/Buddist's intellect or intellectual development a priori.

    Why the assumption they aren't "developed enough"? Sort of oozes with hubris doesn't it?

    Can we start by defining "religious beliefs"?

    The SJW and equality movement

    Amazing how a simple concept can't be understood by so many. This is rebutting something I've never said. Find for me where I said skin color is a limiting factor. I'll save you the time; I've never said that. The simple point of the concept known as "white privilege" is the notion that...

    The SJW and equality movement

    You mean this Morgan Freeman? Might want to do better research. As for the study you reference, its the same old message: pull yourselves up by your bootstraps. Its a good message and lots of people of all skin colors do this every day. It misses the point, however. People shouldn't have...

    The SJW and equality movement

    Two separate topics you amalgamate: 1) Racism/racial bias and 2) conspiracies Hint: They aren't one in the same.

    Conscientiousness and extrovertism are both things that can be developed. You can't change your height or skin color.

    Well structured argument. How is it you can't understand the notion of bias? Are you being purposefully obtuse here?

    Skin color does create privilege, period. See? We can both make absolute statements.

    I don't see a distinction. Further, I find conscientiousness an odd attribute to privilege.

    The SJW and equality movement

    What's wrong with it? Its inaccurate. Skin color doesn't create NBA privilege. Genetics, notably the rarity of height, is the strongest determinant of player's factors that they can't themselves control (i.e., they either are or are not born with it). The average NBA player is 6'7" tall...

    No, its like telling an NBA player he has height privilege.

    The SJW and equality movement

    Apparently Trump either disagrees with you or doesn't care. He must be part of the evil university empire? I'm not speaking for them nor am I "left". I find it troubling that you continue to try and label me as a member of a tribe versus simply engaging with what I write. Don't like what I...

    The SJW and equality movement

    Good post. I think this is a nuanced issue and one where there is a real risk of mixing too many discreet factors into one amalgamation. First, I want to say that BLM organization should not be equated with the question of racism and racial police violence. It seems all too common in this...
