I could handle a PPR overloaded with Vexillifer and motl and their less vocal asociates. I was fine with Awesomely Glorious and Master Pedant. But I am only one - of a total of MAYBE five - and I confess I am beat. Every thread degenerates into - well, count the # posts and look at the contents and ...

Religious Organizations - Step 1. Believers want to socialize with believers Step 2. Socializers need to get people wearing badges and reciting pledges. Step 3, Powervolk see a launching pad for control. Religion -as opposed to religiuous organization - has nothing to do with any of this. Same as po...

Sometimes the tide is too heavy to have it's course altered by the power one individual yields. We must ride them out and clean up afterwards. As long as we as individuals hold the power to change the guard I have no worries. That is the fight we're facing Philologos. The power to change the guard?...

Was he innocent or guilty? Just to clarify: I am talking about ALL of his charges, both 1993 and 2003. So even if he is innocent on everything in 2003 but is guilty on something in 1993, your answer should be "innocent on some of them and guilty on others". I am confused - how is this a means of ge...

How long, O Lord? Look: it is one thing to oppose abortion of principle, it is another to try to prop that up with arguments that have nothing to do with morality even when you do not muck it up. It is well known well outside the abortion discussions that the human female, being stuck with the erect...

when I said that RU-486 caused a 'medical' as opposed to a 'surgical' abortion, I was making a distinction about the impact on the mother, not a moral distinction. Medical treatments are usually better for the patient than surgical ones. wrt. brain function: it makes a difference because most pro-c...

Speaking of arguments you like to pretend are not made: thalamic brain connections not present until 26-th week , the 'developed' brain (not really) you talk about is not even wired to sensory input until the 26-th week.

Plan B basically makes the interior of the uterus inhospitable to a fertilized egg, but does not interfere with an egg that has already implanted. 'Medical' vs.'surgical' are technical terms - short form, medical is intervention by drugs and surgical is intervention by physical manipulation. A not ...
