    At least they’ll get in-state tuition.

    The video at about 25 to 30 seconds was pretty impressive although it would be helpful to know the time lapse span since real time could be a lot less interesting.

    Since the name refers to a rough or roiling sea, my guess is just as mammatus clouds precede a tornado, when you see undulatus asperatus, head upstairs because a shark-nado is on the way.

    Skunk, I didn’t mean to imply that you specifically were an evolutionist although it seems to be a package deal for atheists because it immediately rules out a guiding force, and from your subsequent responses you clearly don’t believe in evolution. If not evolution, then what? It seems to come back to either chance or a guiding force because I’m not seeing much middle ground.

    I think history is pretty clear that, like most things employed in the obtaining and preservation of political power, the Bible and it’s contents have been manipulated and massaged to reinforce regimes religious and secular for the last 2000 years, so I’m not using it for a reference..

    I’m in all things a realist and reality seem to fall short of explaining the overwhelming complexity out of randomness without the influence of a unifying/guiding force. I think you may be more agnostic than you want to admit because to embrace atheism one must be CERTAIN of the absence of God and you state that you don’t know and are open minded on the questions.

    Proof of God: the domestic canine has been around for 10,000 plus years as a descendant of wolf-like ancestors; how, without a God, could the DNA of today’s domestic canines been programmed to so universally embrace the experience of riding around with their heads out of the windows of devices (cars) not invented until at least 9,900 years later (assuming their wolf ancestors would have been at least somewhat pleased given the same opportunity).

    Skunk, to what to you attribute the creation of the universe, the existence of consciousness, the counter-intuitive increase in complexity of a closed system if not chance? This molecule just happened to bump into that molecule and voila: tungsten or alligators or us?

    The fallback position of evolutionists who see no guiding force (yes a belief in God and evolution can happily coexist) is that everything just happened in response to random events, ie, chance, so it seems in an atheist’s world that everything that “is” is a result of only randomness and probability.

    If this isn’t the case for you, I’d really like to hear your explanation for any of my above comments because I’m curious how an atheist would answer them.

    Skunk, you should regularly play the lottery since you’ve cleared your life of all beliefs other than a faith (you can’t escape the word) in mere chance.

    - You have faith (a strongly held belief based on unprovable assumptions) that consciousness was an accident

    - You have faith that the virtually infinite and increasing complexity of the universe was an accident and that the defying of the laws of physics (see rules 1 and 2 of thermodynamics, entropy, etc) which one would assume you hold dear, is a philosophical inconvenience much like the source of the matter for your pal The BB.

    Perhaps more precisely you’re neither an atheist nor an agnostic, but a cynic who doubts all and eschews faith of any kind; at least the cynic can be certain of his own existence since the concept of “doubt” is the solitary concept among a multitude of concepts regarding proof of one’s existence which is able to prove itself in all circumstances by it’s very employment.

    Does doubt exist? Do I exist? I doubt therefore I am? At least you can count on something even if it’s only the absence of anything else.

    No, the true irrationality is ignoring the infinite matter that existed, exploded, expanded and will contract and explode again as though the existence of the matter before during and after is irrelevant. That’s the issue that dogs the skeptics and keeps the atheists’ heads in buckets so they won’t have to face the first of many questions they simply choose not to acknowledge even exist.

    Even if you deny every religion and the existence of any one God or multiple gods you can’t deny the existence of the universe or your existence in that universe and the staggeringly improbable notion that everything… everything, is simply a matter of chance.

    Newman:

    Well, that’s different; she obviously was enticing the rapist with her satanic wiles by having an inch or two of skin uncovered and deserved what she got.

    That one looked pretty nice for over there but it was definitely abandoned, pretty soon we’ll be bombing the buildings we paid for that the Iraqi army ran away from.

    Picture if you will a new sea of lumpy brown glass where the Middle East used to be, still warm in the shadows of the dissipating mushroom clouds.

    Ok fellas, I saw our friend Barack Mohamed Obama on CNN last night and he said we have at least a week and a half to pack up and get out; somebody call U-Haul.

    The late John Pinnette, a very funny and very overweight guy said in one of his routines; “I have no idea what gluten is but I do that that’s where all the flavor is.”

    Overheard at the diner:

    “Waitress, can I get the chicken broiled instead?”
    “Sorry, hon, you’re in Georgia and God only let’s us serve it fried.”

    So the Good Guys should get no more positive treatment than the bad guys lest we be labeled “biased”?

    Would have made for “interesting” reporting during significant periods in our history like , say, 1941-1945.

  • [33] September 23, 2014 at 8:44am

    Don’t forget the real War on Women, the War on the Unborn, the War on Minorities, the War on Working People, the War on Capitalism, the War on Success, the War on Conservatism, The War on National Security and the War on the Truth.

    There are many more but it makes me war-weary to think about it.

    Check the local strip clubs. When Muslims get away from sharia oversight they tend go wild.

    Shogun,

    I’ll assume you’re talking to someone else since I understand the customs of the middle east regarding shooting into the air for celebratory purposes, a practice that would be very strange to depict in an article describing the training of female soldiers with a photo which is captioned as : “a woman from an elite unit of female Kurdish Peshmerga fighters trains (not celebrates by firing into the air) in Sulaimaniyah.”

    If you are addressing me then I suggest you review my other posts which would clarify my status as extremely conservative but with apparently more capacity than you to introduce a bit of humor which was clearly, to all others at least. tongue-in-cheek.

    Do I really expect the redhead from the Wendy’s ads to assist in killing Muslims with bacon coated ordnance? No. Is that clear enough for you? Also please note the almost total lack of ad hominem attacks, you should try it sometime.

  • [4] September 21, 2014 at 11:43am

    I get it that they used the worst possible photo probably of a first time full-auto experience, makes one wonder about the motive of the photographer/author when a photo of determined, skilled female shooter would have supported the story much better.

    At least these folks will fight unlike the Iraqi army that we wasted billions on only to have them run away at the first sign of danger.

    Ironic that we’ll expend many millions of dollars on ordnance to destroy what was formerly our equipment.

    Tell the ammo manufacturers to switch to lard for bullet lube and the virgin requisitions will drop way off.

  • [34] September 21, 2014 at 9:05am

    If the photo is indicative of the marksmanship abilities of the women fighters I think ISIS has a few more days before they lose their quota of virgins…unless they attack by hot air balloon.

    I still think the ballistic equivalent of the “Baconator” would be a credible deterrent; get the cute redhead from the Wendy’s ad and fire away.

    But trees and noble and smart and caring, they must only just fall on mean people who drive SUV’s and vote conservative.

  • [13] September 20, 2014 at 9:40am

    The tree wasn’t happy with just a hug.

    Dang, back to Walmart.

    It gets tiresome to listen to these jerks. Interesting that the The Blaze will censor with abandon what’s written but the videos are so expletive laden as to be ridiculous.

    “Vocabulary? don’t need one, I have the F word.”
