    Of your list of three things above, number one was interesting and a learned a little something from that. Number two is pretty much my take on the psychedelic and non-psychedelic drug experience. […]

    Thanks Phil. That was very interesting. Michael, What do you think?

  • I had my testing done by Ancestry DNA and paid $100.00 for the kit. After that, they sold me a couple more kits for only $50.00 each. I gave one to my mom and one to my husband.

    My results were not surprising. […]

    Yes, that’s right. I won’t defend the use of all drugs, that’s for sure. Some of them have lasting deadly consequences if they get their hooks into you – heroin/opiates, meth, alcohol, nicotine and […]

    I do remember that feeling of transcendence from when I was a child in church. I now think that churches, especially the big cathedrals are built with that very goal in mind. I’ve also experienced […]

    The link you posted in 232 is a video that is sponsored by a group called Life Dynamics. Here is their home page. They are a rabid fundamentalist Christian bunch of lunatics. You should be […]

    I was just about to mention that TV series Genius that started with the first season on Einstein, the second on Picasso and the third season to come was to be on Mary Shelley. I was really looking f […]

    Good one! I remember the first time I viewed the video that the book is based on. It changed everything.

    I finished The Overstory by Richard Powers and I come away from it with new knowledge of t […]

    Interesting review. What’s up next for you?

    I predict we’ll replace Trump with some one better, but in 4 or 8 years, people will fall asleep and disaster will strike again. 
    We may be stuck in a punctuated political equilibrium.

  • Bannon tops the list of worst American exports ever.

    This is so worrisome and discouraging. The self-sabotage of these women speaks to the power of brainwashing. They should be more careful what they wish for.

    Not that one yet but as you mentioned elsewhere, Killing Eve is sublime.

    I do agree with all of your points above. Mayor Pete is intelligent, well educated and articulate. Even if he drops out of the competition for President, he will surely become a presence on the […]

  • Olgun,

    I’m keeping an eye on Mayor Pete. I want to see how he does in the polls for awhile. I’m interested to see if there’s a gender gap and maybe a generation gap in his numbers as he goes along. I will also […]

  • justaman,
    approximately 80% of abortion clinics are in predominantly African American communities

    I will add that white women of the middle, upper middle and […]

    Maddeningly too many atheists were content with the claim that we can be moral too.
    I for one could never be content with that claim. We can be moral too?! In fact, I won’t be lumped in with theists at all […]

    I’m currently reading The Overstory, by Richard Powers. This book won the Pulitzer prize for fiction, 2019. So far, separate stories with a motif of trees running through them.
    Glad to see this thread show up h […]

    This goes back to gas pipe lines from Israel and Egypt. Turkey invest huge amounts developing the technology, with British companies, to to have the gas go through the Mediterranean on to Cyprus, then […]
