Unfortunately, +Daniel Beasley, the inability to "care for other people outside of their immediate social economic circle" is, at least in my humble opinion, a defining characteristic or present day, American conservatism.

I applaud her for saying what she did, but I am upset that the only reason a conservative starts thinking it's okay for gay people to exist in this world is if they have someone that they are either directly related to or know for many years as being a gay person they can't seem to have the empathy to care for other people outside of their immediate social economic circle.___Unfortunately, +Daniel Beasley, the inability to "care for other people outside of their immediate social economic circle" is, at least in my humble opinion, a defining characteristic or present day, American conservatism.

I continue to be amazed at the things that humans are capable of figuring out. I often say that I wish I could have been born a hundred years later but I have a feeling that, no matter what century I was born in, that I'd always say the same thing.   :)

v/ +Daniel Beasley 

I see elements of my own experience in this man's journey to  #atheism  but I lost my faith much later in life.

For some time I split the difference between theism and atheism, keeping a foot in each camp by seeing myself as agnostic but eventually, I had to accept the fact that I had become an atheist.

I agree with the narrator. Atheism is something that happens to us when we aren't looking and once you arrive at this place you can't, simply by conscious decision or sheer will, return to the safety and comfort of theism. 

This is one of the best explanations of losing one's religion I've ever heard or seen. Well worth the time!___v/ +Daniel Beasley

Richard Nixon may have been the first Republican, treasonous dirtbag in recent history but today, the GOP is full of them. 

Richard Nixon was a traitor.

The new release of extended versions of Nixon's papers now confirms this long-standing belief, usually dismissed as a "conspiracy theory" by Republican conservatives. Now it has been substantiated _by none other than right-wing columnist George Will.

Nixon's newly revealed records show for certain that in 1968, as a presidential candidate, he ordered Anna Chennault, his liaison to the South Vietnam government, to persuade them to refuse a cease-fire being brokered by President Lyndon Johnson.

Remember the recent infamous letter to Iran from 47 Republican senators or SOTH John Boehner's invitation to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address the House of Representatives?

Because they have never had to face any consequences for their actions, Republicans have become emboldened and hey are now, so comfortable with their treasonous acts and fraud, that they don't even try to hide it from the public anymore. In fact, they proudly masquerade it as righteous patriotism.___

Republicans love the SCOTUS when it rules in their favor, like when it gutted the Voting Rights Act and allowed them to get away with new voter suppression laws but when things don't go their way their solution is to re-write the Constitution.

Read the short article.

I've read other articles reporting that about 40% of Americans believe that the Sun goes around the Earth.

It's not difficult to imagine the political persuasion of these individuals. Here's a hint:

Not surprisingly, those who claimed to be born again Christians were far more likely to believe that people rode dinosaurs like horses.

Now who do those people tend to vote for and where do they stand on many of today's social issues?

Having some Cajun ancestry, I found this article interesting. For example, I had no idea ... 

In 1988 Lafayette attorney, Warren Perrin, attended a legal conference and participated in a project writing essays on past legal wrongs. Perrin wrote  his paper on the fact that the order to deport the Acadians was still on the books and had never been rescinded. He began a petition and asked for a formal apology by the British Crown. In 2003, Queen Elizabeth II signed an official proclamation in Canada, for the first time taking responsibility for the deportation and the wrongs committed, and declaring July 28th the annual commemoration of Le Grand Dérangement.

Pope Francis really rocks in my book. I love this guy.

Naomi Klein and Cardinal Peter Turkson are to lead a high-level conference on the environment, bringing together churchmen, scientists and activists to debate climate change action. Klein, who campaigns for an overhaul of the global financial system to tackle climate change, told the Observer she was surprised but delighted to receive the invitation from Turkson’s office.

“The fact that they invited me indicates they’re not backing down from the fight. A lot of people have patted the pope on the head, but said he’s wrong on the economics. I think he’s right on the economics,” she said, referring to Pope Francis’s recent publication of an encyclical on the environment.

Eliminate anti-intellectualism in the United States and you'd never get another Republican elected to Congress, not to mention President.

In a country where a sitting congressman told a crowd that evolution and the Big Bang are “lies straight from the pit of hell,” (link is external) where the chairman of a Senate environmental panel brought a snowball (link is external) into the chamber as evidence that climate change is a hoax, where almost one in three citizens can’t name the vice president (link is external), it is beyond dispute that critical thinking has been abandoned as a cultural value. Our failure as a society to connect the dots, to see that such anti-intellectualism comes with a huge price, could eventually be our downfall.

Always happy to hear about improvements in battery technology.

Samsung breakthrough could almost double lithium battery capacity

Researchers at Samsung Electronics announced yesterday that they have developed a new technology to produce a silicon cathode material that coats Graphene onto a silicon surface for higher energy density. In other words, Samsung has found a way to almost double the capacity of lithium batteries, which are used to power smartphones and various other gadgets.

Samsung’s researchers claim that its technique allows the full cell to reach volumetric energy densities of 972 and 700 Wh l−1 at first and 200th cycle respectively, when paired with a commercial lithium cobalt oxide cathode. This is around 1.8 and 1.5 times greater than commercialized lithium ion batteries, meaning more battery capacity for a given area. ___Always happy to hear about improvements in battery technology.

When you look at the results that have been produced by systemic racism, the problem seems almost insurmountable. Certainly there's no overnight fix for something so deeply ingrained into American society but that attitude is part of the problem and racism is by far, not the only issue to which it applies.

Personally, I think that the argument that God exists because the odds of all of the myriad of conditions that needed to be met for life to have arisen on Earth are extremely poor, is weak because when you consider the number of potential planets in the Universe, not just our galaxy, the likelihood that those conditions will be met on at least a few planets is very good, if not all but certain. Look at it this way, the odds that any one Mega Millions lottery ticket will win the jackpot is one in 258,890,850 but as the jackpot value goes up, which usually gets more and more people to buy tickets, the likelihood that SOMEONE will win, increases dramatically almost to the point of certainty.

The guy also makes the argument that if the ratio between the strong and weak nuclear forces were off by a tiny fraction just a billionth of a second after the Big Bang, that the Universe wouldn’t even exist. That’s also a weak argument because he has no scientific evidence that this would even have been possible. The ratio is what the ratio is and it is at the same time, both a result of natural laws as well as a determinant of the laws of physics within our universe. We can theorize and mathmatize (Yeah. I just made that word up.) about what might or might not have happened under different conditions and scientists have suggested that other universes could exists which have completely different physical laws but as yet, there is no scientific evidence that these other universes do exist.

When you get right down to it, this guy’s “arguments” are nothing more than nonsensical claims intended to reassure believes.

Science and religion are incompatible.

Some things are just inescapably undeniable ... 

The federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) provides that the federal government “shall not substantially burden a person’s exercise of religion” except in limited circumstances. Applying this language, Smith writes in a unanimous opinion for a three-judge panel that “[t]he plaintiffs must show that the challenged regulations substantially burden their religious exercise, but they have not done so.”

The crux of Smith’s analysis is that the plaintiffs in these cases object to birth control, but nothing in the law requires these plaintiffs to do anything whatsoever involving birth control. Rather, their only obligation, if they do not wish to cover birth control, is to fill out a form or send a brief letter to the federal government — and neither of those things are contraception.

Rather, their only obligation, if they do not wish to cover birth control, is to fill out a form or send a brief letter to the federal government — and neither of those things are contraception.

“Although the plaintiffs have identified several acts that offend their religious beliefs, the acts they are required to perform do not include providing or facilitating access to contraceptives,” Smith explains. “Instead, the acts that violate their faith are those of third parties.” Specifically, the plaintiffs object to the federal government working with an insurance administrator to provide contraception to certain workers. But the law does not “entitle them to block third parties from engaging in conduct with which they disagree.”___

This tracks with my personal experience. I was born and raised in the Old South. I was very conservative in my youth. I see a lot of the "old me" in this article. Some people who have known me for all if not most of my life wonder how I could have "changed so much".

I think that if you read this article with an open mind, you will find it very easy to come to a lot of the same conclusions as the author especially if you look at the article in the context of what you see being discussed daily in social media.

I love the author's closing paragraph ...

"Our modern Confederates are quick to tell the rest of us that we don’t understand them because we don’t know our American history. And they’re right. If you knew more American history, you would realize just how dangerous these people are."

Since 9/11, more Americans have been killed by right-wing militants than by Muslim militants. Yet law enforcement and the media continue to perpetuate the "lone wolf" moniker for White, male shooters, instead of identifying the local terrorist networks they're a part of.

I lived in San Diego County for seventeen years. I have driven through Rancho Santa Fe many times.

According to Steve Yuhas, who lives in the area and hosts a conservative talk-radio show, privileged people “should not be forced to live on property with brown lawns, golf on brown courses or apologize for wanting their gardens to be beautiful.” Oh, the humanity! In case it wasn’t clear, Yuhas added that the right to water ought to scale with income: “No, we’re not all equal when it comes to water.”

Uuuuhhh ... Rich people don't think we're all equal by ANY measure.
