OK, so what you are telling us is that you have nothing and you are only interested in bitching and moaning (with a lot of gnashing of teeth thrown in as well) at the very idea that you might be expected to present and support your own position.
And it takes you six paragraphs of a meandering rant that contains nothing but ad hominems and ... well, nothing.
So then what possible purpose can there be for this topic except for you to demonstrate that you have nothing (which I have no doubt that you will continue to demonstrate repeatedly and emphatically) and for us to agree with you?
I honestly cannot understand what you could possibly think that you'd be accomplishing here.

Apparently, MrID thinks he should get a trophy for just showing up.
You mean because of his entitled childhood where everybody got a trophy? Just for participating?
But he hasn't participated. Nor does he demonstrate any inclination to ever participate.

"Crazy is never invited to the party. It just shows up."

Have you ever watched the documentary of Sun Tzu, the Art of War in YouTube? Watch it and apply that to Evolution...
Read The Art of War and apply that to yourself!:
quote:
Sun Tzu, Scroll III (Offensive Strategy):
31. Therefore I say: "Know the enemy and know yourself; in a hundred battles you will never be in peril.
32. When you are ignorant of the enemy but know yourself, your chances of winning or losing are equal.
33. If ignorant both of your enemy and of yourself, you are certain in every battle to be in peril."
(Sun Tzu The Art of War, translation by Samuel B. Griffith, Oxford University Press, 1963)
You are ignorant both of your enemy and yourself, so you are certain in every battle to be in peril.
Or to quote a past governor of Mississippi (perennially last in education) justifying his education reforms:
quote:
We've already tried ignorance, so we know that that doesn't work.
I guess you haven't learned that about ignorance yet.

I have no doubt she is a good politician.
No, she is not! She has been disciplined by being removed from her committee assignments. Why? Because she was threatening fellow members of Congress with violence.
The practice of politics involves building and using interpersonal relationships with fellow politicians. She killed that with her threats of violence against fellow politicians. Yes, that is how the GQP now rolls, but it does also make her unviable as a politician.
Her involvement in the attempted overthrow of the government is just icing on the top. I can't wait to see that other shoe drop on all those GQP traitors.

Re: Liar.

No matter what you say, I have simply the best explanation.
Reminds me of one of the most incredibly stupid things I'd ever heard a creationist say. And it was one of the star creationists too!
It was either Dr. Henry Morris or Dr. Duane Gish (my memory leans towards it being Gish) on a radio show in the late 80's. From memory of more than three decades ago:
quote:
Creation is the far better explanation than evolution could be. Evolution claims it can explain everything but it fails to explain anything. Creation doesn't claim to be able to explain anything and sure enough it doesn't! That makes creation the best explanation!
Something which doesn't even claim to explain anything is the best explanation? It's steel-trap minds (ie, rusted shut) and logic like that which makes creationists legends in their own minds.
Similarly, MrID not only hasn't produced any explanations but he also refuses to do so. But that doesn't stop him from making empty boasts about his accomplishments which he has never delivered. Just like his role model, Trump.

Re: Goes with the territory.
Marjorie Taylor Greene is a fucking traitor who should be swinging from a yardarm.
She is a QAnon bot, spreading their destructive misinformation.
Her office was intimately involved in the White House's plans for the 06 Jan 2021 attack on the Capitol and the organized attempt to overthrow the legitimately elected government of the United States of America. Along with several other GQP members of Congress, traitors all of them.
Those traitors' goals are to destroy America. Duh?

Re: Goes with the territory.
But who else would alert us to the threat of Jewish Space Lasers causing wildfires in California?
The Secret Jewish Space Laser Corps! I have the tshirt, the challenge coin, and the decoder ring (code keys are images of a shofar, wine, Torah, grapes, a bee, a loaf of challah, and work "chai" in Hebrew). Mazel Tough!
That's an interesting false claim. Most QAnon BS is taken from TV or movies, like reptilian humanoids posing as human ("V"), hacking a secure site through an airconditioning control ("Mr. Robot"). Or else it's traditional BS, like the centuries-old blood libel against the Jews (which, according to my Rabbinic Lit professor, Rabbi Kalir, is the reason for opening the door for Elijah at a Seder, so that they could show the Gentiles that there's nothing secret going on and the wine they're drinking is actually wine, not the blood of kidnapped Gentile children).
But this one was a bit more esoteric. Back in 1977, a physicist named Gerard O'Neill (who sported a Vulcan haircut) wrote some books advocating for space colonies. The colonists would live on the inner surface of a rotating cylinder or sphere (think of the design of the Babylon 5 station) constructed with aluminum mined from the moon. They would be financed through the construction of power satellites. Those satellites could collect solar energy and then deliver that power to the earth via a microwave beam that would be received by an array of antennae on earth and converted back to electricity. When I heard QAnon Betty's mention of those "space lasers", it was obvious that this is what she was referring to, even though we don't have any yet, plus they would be space masers, not lasers.
