    What are you watching?

    I watched the first episode of Showtime’s true crime series Murder on the Bayou last night. It’s good. Because of the setting and the accents, it feels like the real life version of the first season of True Detective (but without Matthew and Woody). One of my college roommates is from...

    Impeach Brett Kavanaugh??

    Mass delusion like this only happens in a free society when the press eschews truth for partisanship.

    RIP, Eddie Money

    I was rocking out to Shakin’ on my way into work this morning. Underrated song. I don’t love The Cars, but I certainly acknowledge their musical significance. But I’d rank a number of their tracks ahead of the ones you listed, including Just What I Needed, Best Friend’s Girl, and Good Times...

    Explaining the South

    I had no idea there were so many God-forsaken Yankees on this board. And it was grits that flushed you out. :oops::mad::p:D

    2020 Democratic Primaries

    Is there anything more laughable or more telling than a politician like Beto—who is clearly a huge p*ssy, personally—talking tough about what he would do if given the power of government?

    They're coming for the robots now.

    Well, in his defense, robots are everywhere, and they eat old people’s medicine for fuel.

    Yellowstone (TV show)

    I’m huge fan of Sheridan’s writing. He writes dialogue as authentically as anyone going, especially in his genres. The opening flashback scene of middle-aged John Dutton taking his dying father for one last ride and talk is a great example (and parallels the great scene with John and oldest...

    Giving Up Darwin

    I think you’d particularly like Gray’s historical analysis of secular “state” religions, from the Jacobins and the French Revolution, to the Bolsheviks, to the Nazis, to the Maoists, etc. I found that discussion to be particularly relevant, in light of the current machinations in the Democratic...

    Giving Up Darwin

    I’m willing to entertain the idea that you don’t have to believe in the essentials of the Christian faith in order to live out those values. So, who are the non-Christians who consistently live out those kinds of values? If you reject the Judeo-Christian moral code that finds its source in...

    Giving Up Darwin

    When I compare your responses on this topic to @JG, this is what I mean. You’re arguing reflexively against me when I cite to the work of renowned atheist (and professor of philosophy and political thought at the London School of Economics) John Gray. And you go so far as to say that you can...

    Giving Up Darwin

    To be clear, neither of the authors whom I cited—atheist Gray and Christian Day—resorts to the Bible or Judeo-Christian beliefs in their refutation of the New Atheists. Instead, Gray and Day take them down solely with the logical flaws inherent in their own philosophy. And, I completely agree...

    Giving Up Darwin

    I’m having trouble understanding how your post logically relates to my post. Dawkins, Hitchens, Harris, and Dennett are voices of the so-called New Atheists. They are loudly, arrogantly, and militantly anti-Christian (and anti-religion of any kind). When someone publicly espouses that kind of...

    Giving Up Darwin

    Before even reading them? Or, more accurately, without reading them? You really do act like @JG when it comes to this one particular topic. It’s bizarre.

    Giving Up Darwin

    If you want to see these spokesmen for the so-called New Atheists dissected and embarrassed by a fellow atheist, then check out Seven Types of Atheists by John Gray. If you want to see them similarly rolled by a Christian, then check out The Irrational Atheist by Vox Day.

    2020 Democratic Primaries

    It’s not just you. I had exactly the same response. As for revoking his man card, I don’t think Beto has ever had one. After all, this is the guy who donned a woman’s floral blouse for his band’s publicity photo.

    2020 Democratic Primaries

    Reminds me of one of my favorite SNL commercials, for the affordable new Adobe (narrated by the great Phil Hartman):

    Yellowstone (TV show)

    When Rip went toe-to-toe with Kayce—a SF trained fighter—in the corral, Rip let Kayce win, to please John. He also crashed through a plate glass window, took a bullet to the gut, and then promptly killed the two armed Beck Brothers henchmen. Rip is a freakin’ superhero. At the very least...
