"BTW, for many years (maybe still) Chomsky refused to declare Pol Pot a criminal, along with a number of other dictators. I don't know if he eventually acknowledged it or not."

"Zealots cannot be reasoned out of their belief by facts. They will not give up the beliefs because a prophecy failed. Christians have been expecting the end of the world for 2000 years, and it failed scores of times. But belief persists."
jay H commented on Gregory Phillip Dearth's blog post Syrian Refugees
""As the demographics of these refugees seems to be mostly widowed women, men over 60, and children, we would still be accepting most of the refugees." Actually if that were true, it would make more sense. However in Europe, at least,…"

jay H commented on Joan Denoo's blog post Crisis provides the opportunity for change.
"Religion and nationalism are two sides of tribal identity. As such, they are as much biologically based as our other social instincts. Hopefully we may temper them a bit but there is little chance of rewiring the human mind that greatly."

About Me:
I'm an old coot, raised JW, became sceptical then outrightly disbelieving many years ago.

Politically (after years of wandering through philosophies-du-jour), I'm strongly pro-individual freedom, pro-market, to the discomfort of both my liberal and conservative friends.

Day job is computer administration for a large corporation. Off hours I like anything with machines and tools.

Nice looking dog you have! "Securing" a dog is a concern. Previous dogs have stayed outdoors ALL the time, never running away . But I live out in the country. Free roaming is my preference, but the H.S. doesn't like to hear that. I'm losing sleep trying to come up with an alternative.
