    Kevin Annett, On the Nature of Evil |439|

    A belief in the existence of absolute good REQUIRES the commensurate existence of absolute evil - can't have one without the other. Claiming to represent "absolute" good has been exploited by politics, religion and science as an excuse to create absolute evil - It is just as simple as that...

    Kevin Annett, On the Nature of Evil |439|

    Interestingly, I posted on this very subject 'round about last year. I'll paraphrase: "[Conspiracy buffs] will take absolutely the most half-baked, hair-brained and far-fetched conspiracy stories at face value, hook, line and sinker, as long as it comports to his preconceived notions of...

    Kevin Annett, On the Nature of Evil |439|

    Lol! Even to make a presumption of innocence makes me potentially in cahoots with child-rapists! You've gone from mere bigotry into paranoia. This is how witch hunts begin - nobody ever expects the Spanish Inquisition!

    Kevin Annett, On the Nature of Evil |439|

    I’m not catholic nor am I here to defend Catholicism, etc. but we simply do not recognize our own preconceived cultural bias. My grandmother came from Ireland to Canada to be raised in one of these Catholic orphanages. The men on my Grandfathers side were in the US Calvary in Montana. Most of...

Well, this certainly fits our cultural prejudices in North America. It is our own preconceived bias and prejudices like this that lends credibility to...

    Conner Habib, on Progressives Disconnect From Spirituality |401|

    If the truth ever be known, probably the biggest conspiracy in world history was the European aristocratic reaction to the spread of American-style democracy - the Theory of Evolution (no, I am not religious). The American system was, in part, more successful than others because an allowance...

    Conner Habib, on Progressives Disconnect From Spirituality |401|

    Also for Eric Newhill: Pardon me for interrupting a good argument while the feathers are still flying, but I wonder if you recognize points that you have in agreement? Curiously, you both seem to see yourselves as victims of the same Capitalist system, whether through paying too much taxes; or...

    "neo-puritans/neo-Marxist" It really is a secular religion. This is because it is easy to exploit the separation of church and state in the media. The church is excluded from ever defending itself in the secular forum, and can easily be portrayed in any derogatory manner. This despite the fact...

    Ed Opperman, Trump, Epstein, Why Beliefs Don’t Change |399|

    Most conspiracy theorists that I’ve followed tend to drift more and more into high contrast-black and white thinking as they progress down their particular rabbit hole. In real life, good and evil is seldom so clearly defined and absolute. Yet every expedition down the rabbit hole starts to...

    It's not a conspiracy theory if it's true. This is from an article by Adolph L. Reed Jr. which for me, was a real eye-opener. If the professor was white, he would certainly be labeled as "Racist": "As the argument has progressed, a de facto alliance between ostensibly progressive identitarians...

    The MSM narrative is broken. The media is on a desperate search to find the evidence that fits its narrative of socially approved – dare I say it Politically Correct – conspiracy theories, like “Sexism” the conspiracy of an entire gender to actively dominate another; or “Racism”, the similar...

    I’ve noticed that while other races self-segregate by ethnicity, or religion, Indo-Europeans have historically segregated by social class, such as the Indian caste system and the British class system of the 19th century. I don’t know if many are familiar with 19th century British history, but I...

    I dust off my copy of Lao Tzu to find that such intangibles were traditionally measured by their opposites, or by what they were not i.e. pain by pleasure; joy by sadness; good by evil, etc. I believe this was also the case throughout most of Eurasia prior to monotheism, which introduced our...

    Ed Opperman, Trump, Epstein, Why Beliefs Don’t Change |399|

    I would say that the differences between our liberal and conservative politicos have been non-existent, since most believe in something that has gone by several different names over time. I'm thinking Social Darwinism, Capitalism; sometimes Free Trade and Globalism. Certainly no one of them has...

    Hamlet said, "Nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so" Who knew better than Shakespeare? First I heard of that term "ignostic", thanks for that. I'm ignostic, too.

    What is objective and rational is any opinion that I agree with. What is subjective and emotional is any opinion that I disagree with. In actual reality, any "objectivity" must be postulated from a subjective point of view (there is no purely objective point of view). Similarly, both what is...

    "so leaving aside what "Satan" means and what "evil" means a good first step is to at least be able to identify what is happening." Not to belabor the point, but what is required is an examination of the premises through which we view all the evidence before we rush down a rabbit hole looking...

    I love Ed Opperman (qualifiers: platonic ally...from afar); I have listened to Ed since his first appearance on C2C. He and Alex have a quality that is rare in radio-podcast-type hosts: a truly relentless interest in the subject at hand. That being said, it is also true that Ed will take...
