I like that Christie had the balls to follow thru on his own investigation with his own people investigating and clearing himself.


Weren't you the one crying like a little bitch about the equivalency shit?

Oh yea, you were.  Roll Eyes




  Oh, i know, "obama did XYZ, so christie is a fine choice".  I'm so glad getbiggers don't go there anymore.

What the heck are you talking about now?

There's a difference between hate speech, and a critique of national state policies.



Yea, yea.  I know, it's always 'different' when you do it.  Standard liberal mantra.

Enjoy your prison cell and orange jumpsuit, twit.

Let us know how the forced muff diving goes food tastes.

This surprises you? It's not like the government hasn't tried criminalizing things before and only succeeded in creating a criminal black market. Fuck make all drugs legal, adults can make decisions for themselves.


Yep.

Excellent news!

The more of you filthy, Canadian douchebags they lock up, the better off the world.

Of course, it's not surprising that Jag was against others in Canada having free speech.  But when her hate speech is on the agenda...go figure  Roll Eyes

Feds: 'Excessive force' found in Albuquerque police

The U.S. Justice Department on Thursday released a scathing report in response to a series of deadly police shootings that pointed to patterns of excessive force by the Albuquerque Police Department, serious constitutional violations and a lack of training and oversight of its officers.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/04/10/feds-excessive-force-found-in-albuquerque-police/


Notice how absolutely NOTHING in that report indicates holding the officers responsible.  ZIP.  Another free fucking ride.

He's been held in contempt of Congress and not a damn thing will happen to him.  Now, he has to 'oversee' another member of the administration who has been held in contempt, lol.

What a joke.  Lerner just got her free ride.

I'm wondering if she has been offered a high ranking position at some university.

84  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Tennessee atheists win right to distribute literature after schools give Bibles on: April 10, 2014, 04:15:26 PM


My position in this thread is there is no scientific theory for how life began on earth and that whatever belief anyone has about the origin of life on earth is at least in part a faith-based belief, because it cannot be proved. 




Doesn't seem likely.  I would think there are many like me who are comfortable that we simply don't know.  Saying we don't know does not mean we are taking anything of faith.  It just means something occurred that caused life.

Believing that something must be a supernatural entity because we don't know is taking it on faith.

In fact, if we applied you're argument, probably nearly every theory would be based on faith because we don't know every single thing.  Sorry, but not knowing, does not equate to faith.

You are confused.

follow our conversation back, and see where you made the assumption (falsely) that I was talking about religion. It should have been clear that I was referring to 'creation science' as you put it in my original reply. By the way, in this type of discourse there is no distinction drawn between creationism and creation science. I suspect it's something you pulled out of thin air to make a point.

As to the point of my original post- there is plenty of evidence that society is continually evolving and shedding old nonsensical beliefs. Just look at how society has evolved in its treatment of blacks. The same is becoming true of homosexuals.


Nope, not confused at all.

I grouped creationism and religion (and still would).

You wanted split them out, but you're too stupid to know the difference between creationism and creation science. 

I'll help you.

Creationism is a widely held belief that a divine being created the universe, humans, perhaps in the abstract, everything within.

Creation science is the failed attempt by a small group to apply scientific proof to the creationism belief.  And when I was in high school, the Supreme Court ruled it inappropriate for teaching in school.  For whatever that was worth - I attended multiple high schools and never once came across the teaching.

As for the change, I agree that we have made significant strides, but there is no massive push to eliminate creationism (or religion as I would argue).  There are no protests, no 'causes', in fact I don't know of any push whatsoever.  To me, it's not even close to being equivalent to civil rights or gay rights.

Seems to me this is just going to the opposite extreme.  Roll Eyes

Fuck France anyway.
87  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: “Cosmic” meltdown! Neil deGrasse Tyson under siege from Christian right on: April 06, 2014, 06:40:28 AM
creationism is not religion, it is a psuedoscience that comes about from a literalist misinterpretation of religion. It is insane to think that the genesis account is literally true.



No, you're trying to split hairs and you can't even do that right.

Creationism is a belief.  Creation Science is what you're referring to.

It doesn't matter how you want to split hairs.

Religion, faith, creationism, mysticism, deities, ritualism...all going to be around for a long time to come.

88  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Tennessee atheists win right to distribute literature after schools give Bibles on: April 05, 2014, 10:52:38 AM


2.  What theories are out there "based on researched and tested facts" about the origin of life on day 1?  I'm unaware of any. 



I'm not aware of any either, but when you were asked for an example of a scientific theory based on faith, you answered with the origin of life.

What specific theory has faith as an element?
89  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: “Cosmic” meltdown! Neil deGrasse Tyson under siege from Christian right on: April 05, 2014, 10:41:00 AM
interesting. it won't last long, just a matter of the old generation clinging to stupid ideas. Thank goodness we all face death, can you imagine how many fucked up ideas would still be around if older generations were still alive?


It will last our life time and well beyond.  Religion isn't going away anytime even close to soon.

HEHEHEHEH!!

I thought so.

Libtards are hypocrites.

Interesting how gays voted in droves for thejokeinthewhitehouse to be reelected eventhough he was against gay marriage the same year that the CEO made his donation.


Give it time.  Our board liberals don't actually think for themselves.

When DU and Huff Post gives them their talking points, they'll drop in and make an attempted argument by parroting their masters.

92  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Tennessee atheists win right to distribute literature after schools give Bibles on: April 02, 2014, 02:53:13 PM
The fact those atheists have literature is retarded. 


meh...I'm not sure.  I'm thinking there's nothing wrong with giving people, especially students, multiple sides of the issue.  If they can pass out religious material, they should be able to pass out atheistic or agnostic material.  Besides, probably not appropriate to disperse this stuff at a school anyway.  Keep it at home.

Its not good.

I don't trust wealthy corps and peeps to make the right decisions politically free from conflicts of interest, collusion, and straight up greed.

We are becoming the "UCA"   (United Corporations of America)

I think this is individuals though?

Both are tough.  I wanna keep money out of politics without treading on people's 1st Amendment rights.

I know...pipe dream, lol.

It looks like they're building up big now (just from news stories, anyway).

Not much we can do about it, so I'm not sure we can really hassle Obama over it.  Although we need to stop signing agreements that we have no intention of upholding.

Maybe some nearby NATO exercises, but I don't see that doing jackshit.

Any rational intelligent person likes to discuss issues whether they may or may not happen because it helps deepen understanding.   


True, there's something to be said for theory.

Gotta admire his tenacity though. Either that, or as I imagine, he really believes he's getting the better of everyone.


Perhaps.  I'm surprised he hasn't been using his typical 12 year old tactic of dropping some gay random YouTube video in.

Yeah... Fury always said that he was handicapped/autistic.. Didn't really believe it.. but I'm starting to see where that came from. Dude definitely has some sort of cognitive impairment.


Oh yea, he's certainly a retarded shut-in.  Been stupid since day 1.  Ah well...
