    A member has simply asked me for the meaning of a word .

    As Phi already shared, that was not what I did. I’m quite capable of referencing a dictionary or Google myself.

    I DID comment on the lack of credibility of one of the websites you provided when asked to support your claim that it was “TRUTH!!” that the US capitalistic system WILL soon collapse.

    When I made this comment, you then suggested I’m clearly over reactive and emotional about the word Marxism. 

    It’s fairly well apparent that you either have a problem with reading comprehension, intellectual honesty, or perhaps both. 

    Regardless, none of this is either interesting nor on-topic. This thread is about the insurrection on January 6. If you’d like to further explore the likelihood (or what you claim is an inevitability) of the capitalistic parts of the US economic system collapsing, then please do so in a separate thread.

    Please make it clear what is so wrong with this  so that I can possibly correct my writing(s)

  2. There’s no there there. We see shiny stuff on Mars all of the time. This is nothing new and has happened with past photos. 

    Sometimes, it’s just plastic from the rover or landing vehicle itself:

    Other times, it’s a cosmic ray being detected by the camera equipment:

    But in most cases, it’s just our feeble human brains forcing us to see patterns even when they’re not actually there, like this woman on Mars (and like is almost certainly happening here in this silly thread):

    I read this morning that the CPAC theme for this year is "America Uncanceled", where they'll be addressing exactly this from a conservative perspective. Unfortunately, one of their guest speakers recently made an anti-Semitic remark in public, so they had to cancel him.

    They’re also refusing to buy potatohead dolls since they’re actively loving to be more inclusive of transgendered kids

    Just prime yourself on the topic on theses

    Yes, those are all interesting opinion pieces highlighting some of the weaknesses in our current economic system. They are not “truth” claims about an inevitable crash as you seem to think. 

    I assure you I’m primed, painted, and even fairly well weathered on these subjects, but appreciate your attempts to enlighten me like some naive uninformed child. 

    I find the marxists dot org site to be especially credible in that endeavor

    There is no reason to deem only one of them as the best antonym to atheism . ..  ..  .

    I tend to agree, but your original assertion suggested the opposing side of atheism is deism. That's a rather odd claim to make when in the US, for example, deism accounts for only about 0.02% of the population whereas theism accounts for almost 80%... you know, about 4,000x as many as deists do.

    many people regard atheism or deism to be opposite logical poles.

    I am afraid you are not quite right . . . . . .. 

    And I'm supposed to just take your word on that? Please elaborate. Happy to discuss and correct any blindspots or errors in my thinking.

    Where I live there are "speed hump" signs.

    I thought those were called a "quickie"

    It's actually called an, "Oops... That's never happened to me before, I swear!"
