    What an unusual counterargument. Of course it doesn't seem misguided to me. The abolitionist movement was accomplished by people who weren't bound by the strictures of slavery. That was the point....

    A number of posters have noted carpedm's...unusual take on language. Either defining words idiosyncratically, or holding to strict dictionary definitions to a degree unwarranted by their...

    No. The abolitionist movement was an intellectual and political movement. By the very nature of the movement, most abolitionists were white. Slaves did not have a political voice. During the colonial...

    Most abolitionists were, by necessity, white, so it's a bit anachronistic to make it seem like only black resistance and protest is what changed the plight of black people, and forced this nation to...

    Yep, this is was one of the areas that jumped out at me immediately upon my initial skim.

    If you've read the essays then the anachronisms should have stood out pretty obviously. If they didn't, then I imagine dragging chunks of the essays over here, and pointing them out to you isn't...

    I skimmed through a few essays. It's HEAVILY anachronistic. Absolutely brimming with "correlation proves causation" fallacy. And makes a number of unprovable or debatable assertions. Most of the...

    I'll take a whack at it. Order of posts:

    (Sparko is referencing the discussion about lawn alternatives, and having to mow.)

    I wrote more in that post that I think is relevant to your reply.

    We could say the same about the many Christian pastors and leaders who have done hypocritical things over the years. Paul himself stated, "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do...

    Mark Ruffalo's kids make a cameo in Thor Ragnarok, so I don't think they were flown down just to vacation with him. Sounds like they came down along with him while filming. And it looks like DiCaprio...

    Is there discussion among the mods about having him curb the baby talk on the forum? It's pretty trolly behavior, and I believe CP mentioned a thread about it. I suppose I could just set him on...

    Turns out that was false.

    Yeah, I think it depends on the issue, but kind of along with what you're saying I see this video ALL of the time posted on other forums (particularly Reddit)

    That's an interesting take on Heiser's material. Have you read any of his work, or listened to his podcast?

    :lol: Makes sense. I'm actually looking into "moss lawns," and "micro clover lawns" right now, and for some people who like the look of short green lawn, that may be the way to go. Probably depends...

    Depends on how you do it. A rock garden doesn't take much maintenance. And a wildflower lawn is just a bunch of weeds that you leave alone.

    There is an actual anti-mowing movement growing in the US. I can't remember what it's officially called, but the idea (if I recall correctly) is that the concept of a "lawn" comes from poor people in...

    I'd like to know how all of this squares with Mike Heiser's Divine Council view. It sounds like Walton and Walton want to downplay the spiritual realm, which is diametrically opposed to Heiser's...

    I think it's impressive that he even bothers with cons anymore. Surely the guy doesn't need the money that badly, but it must be pretty easy gigs. I think he likes the attention, and knowing that...
