Even if He didn’t do them until that point doesn’t mean He couldn’t. It may have been only waiting for an appointed time.

Roseboomboom – I like a good conspiracy as much as the next person, but I doubt the mosquitos were engineered to die in the cold. They’ve always been that way. Evidence of engineering would be if they DIDN’T die in the cold.

I know (I think I know) that DDT was responsible for the loss of birds of prey, etc. I was young then and didn’t pay attention. But what would be the harm if we used DDT for a year or two. Give all the crap a good cleaning out. I hope if anybody can tell me the problem they’ll chime in here.

I have the same situation in my family. My brother was born of an American father and foreign mother, in the mother’s country. Last weekend I came across the official US govt document (don’t remember what it is titled) which showed that my brother was a US citizen at birth, despite being born abroad. I didn’t know this at the time, I thought he had to be naturalized…but nope…it’s all in yellowed paper and ink.

Wonderful essay Matt. I’m reading and recommend “Men and Marriage” by George Gilder. It is relevant to your article.

Blink, you and I are on different sides of the religion question, but I agree with you on this one.

Oh Matt, just when I think I couldn’t love you any more profoundly you go and write such an epic article. I am reveling in it. Thank you.
Per your point “A great preponderance of jobs only “require” a college degree because their Human Resource departments are lazy and unimaginative,” how right you are. My mother worked for 20 years in the activities department of a nursing home. She was such a tremendous asset and the residents LOVED her. She brought 100% of herself to the job, had brilliant ideas, empathized with the residents – all while lesser “activity assitants” were sneaking out for a smoke. When the opening came up for Activities Director she was not eligible because she didn’t have the degree, all the while everyone AGREEING that she would be perfect, but such are the rules. I appreciate that I have the place to vent, at the same time being relevant to your article.

I’m very dubious of her claim that she couldn’t practice her faith in Vienna.

well, if that’s not the pot calling the kettle black, then nothing is.

Berkshire – actually potatoe was (and is) an accepted form of spelling potato, yet they still piled on D. Quayle for it. It is how I sometimes spell it as well (for as often as potatoe comes up in text). But the illogic of this statement was immediately apparent (even to me, a person who spells potatoe).

I just don’t understand all the hoopla. If in a hotel room I find a Bible, Koran, Vedas and Book of Shadows it wouldn’t bother me in the least! As long as nobody is forcing you to read and/or believe, just grow up!
Don't people know how God talks and how Lucifewr talks? God got rid of people killing people who kept his laws and precepts. Allah is a loss cannon saying, kill whoever is not in name a Muslim.

ORSINO – Conflating wisdom with “hatred” is a trick of the Left.

but not even the pagans were stupid enough to allow covert operatives into their midst. I don’t wish any harm on the Muslim refugees, but don’t feel we can screen them well enough to ensure the safety of Americans. The MUSLIM countries – SURROUNDING THEM – should be taking them in and we can happily and confidently accept Christians and Jews.

not multiple gods. it’s 3 aspects of the same god.
December 16, 2015 at 3:11pm
you’re partially correct. The “book” is the Bible.
 December 16, 2015 at 3:06pm
Waa wa waa….a Bible verse. It Burns!!! It Burns!!!
 December 15, 2015 at 7:01pm
as a Christian, I of course think your faith is incorrect. HOWEVER, I support your right to practice it and appreciate that you do the same for others.
