If someone takes action on an extremist view, then they are a terrorist. By 'action' in this case, I do not mean protesting or posting their opinion on a willing site online. I mean some form of violence to try to drive political change.
Quote from: Sawyer on November 24, 2023, 11:56:14 PMOkay I swear I'm not trying to pick fights here, but while we're on the subject, there are literally hundreds of popular books that you can pick up that completely demolish creationism. There are a handful of them that are dreadfully boring, but with the exception of aforementioned Gould, I have never found an author who I feel truly stands alone as absolute "must read" on the topic. People put WAAAAAAY too much emphasis on a handful of skeptic super-stars who were in the right place at the right time and had a really good relationship with a publisher.

I vote for them because I like all their other progressive policies, but on these two issues I disagree with them.
They're also opposed to Hydro-Electric schemes and many proposed Wind Farms.
A lot of NIMBYs in the Greens Party

Quote from: DevoutCatalyst on November 20, 2023, 08:14:47 AMSounds about right. I think we'll attempt to go to Mars and back and hopefully without much harm to the astronauts...
