  1. Professor with history of correctly predicting elections forecasts that Biden will defeat Trump https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/510754-professor-with-history-of-correctly-predicting-elections-forecasts-that American University professor Allan Lichtman, who has a record of accurately predicting presidential races, said he expects former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, to defeat President Trump in November. Lichtman was one of the few forecasters who predicted the Trump's election in 2016. Over decades of observing presidential politics, he has
  2. This video isn't a deepfake video, why are you asking about this video? The twitter video posted earlier in this thread is the one I was talking about. Duh level? I looked for the original video and I couldn't find it, if it's out there then more power to whoever can dig it up---and golly, maybe that's why nobody has posted the original, who woulda thunkit? But what is your position about the twitter video? It's not a deepfake? Is it altered? Does it have artifacts make her appear strange? I'm asking because you compared the twitter video to a video from her youtube channel
  3. Ran across this article today on The Atlantic, A Famous Argument Against Free Will Has Been Debunked For decades, a landmark brain study fed speculation about whether we control our own actions. It seems to have made a classic mistake. https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2019/09/free-will-bereitschaftspotential/597736/ The death of free will began with thousands of finger taps. In 1964, two German scientists monitored the electrical activity of a dozen people’s brains. Each day for several months, volunteers came into the scientists’ lab at the University of Freiburg to g
  4. In the serial killer example, Harris cites prior causes being determinates, "these events precede any conscious decision to act," but because they exist in the serial killers past doesn't mean they caused it. Of course there are plenty of plenty of people that have similar backgrounds but haven't murdered, Sam Harris is identifying conditions in the serial killer's past that could have influenced his act, but they are conditions, not necessary and sufficient conditions, so they exist but they aren't necessarily causal.
  5. Interesting! So I Googled it: U.S. Space Force estimated to cost $13 billion in first five years: memo https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-military-space/u-s-space-force-estimated-to-cost-13-billion-in-first-five-years-memo-idUSKCN1LX2GZ WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Air Force estimated start up costs for a proposed U.S. Space Force, a new military service backed by President Donald Trump, will be around $13 billion in the first five years, according to a Department of Defense memo seen by Reuters. The Air Force, the U.S. military branch that takes responsibility for s
  6. Space Force is catching some momentum: Trump's vision for Space Force may get boost https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/dec/17/donald-trumps-vision-for-space-force-may-get-boost/ President Trump moving ahead with his plans for a separate military space command, a step toward his goal of creating a new U.S. Space Force, according to multiple reports. [...] Mr. Trump could sign the order for a Space Command as soon as Tuesday, White House officials said. The planned space command, which was first reported by CNN, does not need approval from Congress, as would be req
  7. Exactly! Mostly what I've been reading about is inteachment.
  8. To be honest, when Trump unleashed covfefe I thought at first he was screwing with everyone, but still I can't be sure he didn't fat-finger "coverage". Too many late-night cheeseburgers has plumped up those tiny digits
  9. It's not about "boisterous" or "snowflakes", it's not about "strong" or "weak". That dichotomy is barbarism. There will always be a portion of society that will try to use primitive tactics and actions to try to gain advantage over others. It's your forum, you choose to allow or not allow whatever behavior. Civility exists, but for it to exist there has to be rules and those rules enforced, otherwise the barbaric will have their way. The rational and moral will be impacted by the "strong" and those who seek superiority over others. Perhaps the rational and moral will seek out "safe space
  10. So does that mean you do or don't believe that an iceberg in Antarctica was cut by a laser beam?
