"Christopher Hitchens covers the Nixon treason in "The Trial of Henry Kissinger." Y'all also might like H. Bruce Franklin's "Vietnam and Other American Fantasies," which exposes the fraud behind the POW/MIA…"
"Joan, you would have a hard time convincing Palestinians that the Israelis are their cousins. You would have an equally hard time getting Israelis to admit that the ancient texts deeding their land to Abraham are fictions. After the…"
"This may be too late, but what you've described is a pretty common scam. Remember Robert Blake, the TV/movie star? His wife was murdered, and he was a suspect. Investigation showed that she had been a consummate con artist who…"
"A belated thanks, Michael. It's puzzling that the media tiptoes around religiously motivated violence and hysteria. When anyone mentions the Turkish genocide against the Armenian minority, nothing is said about the Turks being…"
"Long after Genesis, the Israelites practiced polygamy; the Mosaic law includes rules for the treatment of multiple wives and for inheritance by sons of multiple wives, so the idea that marriage can only consist of one man and one woman because of…"
"Paul says he neve rmet Jesus except in visions. Luke prefaces his gospel by explaining that there were so many writings about Jesus that he felt he had to set the record straight, so he was writing the true version of the miracles that had…"
"The "wise men" follow the star because they are astrologers. Oddly, the star they follow goes to Jerusalem, not Bethlehem, apparently so the the astrologers can consult--and inform--Herod. Herod's priests tell him the…"
Clearly, we must get off of fossil fuels for our energy source. We are reaching or have reached peak oil, gas, and coal. Nuclear energy produces unsolved storage problems. Falling water supplies as much energy as possible. There exist other as yet undeveloped sources of energy that could supply vast amounts of energy without the pollutants or the waste. Sun, wind, wave, currents, photosynthesis, and geothermal offer the most obvious alternatives to fossil fuels. See More
"No fear and no defeatist attitude or intention of changing course. The fact remains that over 60 million Americans voted for a con man who offered no specific plans, no evidence for his opinions, and no understanding of the modern world. The right…"
"I can't buy this argument. The media pundits keep saying that Trump tapped into the fear, the anger, and the angst of ordinary people who find themselves somewhat at sea in a rapidly changing world, but he blamed their perceived problems…"
"I was reading in 2 Kings the other day the story of King Josiah's discovery of the Book of the Law during the renovation of the Temple. It seems that the Hebrews had their religion pretty much all wrong and that the Temple was used not only for…"
The fact that you have to wait once it fails definitely points to an overheating problem. If I were you I would (carefully) try to work out which parts are very hot immediately after it fails. My guess would be that you will find it to be the processor but it could also be ram chips or something else. Then you will have to find out if it is cooled properly - it may be as simple as reseating the processor.
Yes, it does, but not as many as I encountered in Natchitoches. My family attended the First Assembly of God there, pastored by David Allen. Things were bad enough there that at one point, back in the late 80s, the big joke around town was 'don't drink the koolaid'.
Actually, I should say that WV likely has as many fundies as LA, however, the fundies seem much more crispy fried in LA.
Natchitoches is a lovely town, but also very colorful. My twin sister lives in Pineville, but she remains in close contact with some of her Natchitoches friends. She doesn't, however, remain in close contact with me. I'm the family pariah.
Welcome to this friendly site with freethinkers who recognise that fictional gods and cunning religions continue to deceive and control vulnerable people including defenceless children. How tragic and inexcusable it is too that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and longer.
