    Reading the 1610 Douay-Rheims Bible (no Challoner revision)

    The Gospel of St. Matthew, Chapter 24: Marginalia: 11: vThere were in the people false Prophets, as among you also shall be lying Masters, which shall bring in Sects of perdition. 2 Pet. 3. 23: vWhosoever draweth Christ or his Church from the Communion and fellowship of all Nations...

    The God pill

    I'm no confessor, brother, so it might be worth consulting a priest or pastor of your denomination at this point. I can tell you I know unrequited love. The only consolation I can give you is that it does pass, in time, and one of the ways to do so is to not think about it. EDIT: Also, if...

    The God pill

    I think you need to be a bit more precise about what your prayer was, why you're seeking it, and what exactly the problem you're having is.

    The God pill

    Sin requires the full consent of the will; habit is well understood to abrogate culpability. Prayer, persistence, and time are all that can help. Above all, remember you are human, like me, like everyone else here - we have a fallen nature, thanks to Adam's original sin, but we are redeemed by...

    The Beast System & The god of Technology

    Babel is not a parable against technology, it's a parable against pride. So far as it's relevant, God is indifferent to technology, and He (as Christ tells us) calls money at best a tainted thing. The limits of science are apparent: can't pass lightspeed, can't put a pin on a photon like...

    The Beast System & The god of Technology

    I'm struck by the similarity of these sentiments to those interspersed throughout the novel of Jurassic Park, using Ian Malcolm as the mouthpiece character. As usual, he was the most popular character out of the series, brought back for both book and film despite basically having died in the...

    What does/did the red pill mean to you?

    Dunno, but I'm sure at some point in this thread it'll be pointed out it has something to do with Islam.

    Asian flu epidemic 1957-58

    That and the fact that, after emerging in February 1957, the vaccine for it was first tested in July 1957, and was available from October 1957. Call me insane, but I'd imagine the main reason it was the 1957-1958 Asian pandemic was because you could vaccinate against it from the 7, as in, same...

    The Coronavirus Pandemic thread III

    That's easy, you just train the dog to smell bullshit. Course, greater quantities make differentiation harder.

    The Coronavirus Pandemic thread III

    Nope. It's not. Dogs are frequently used in detection of certain types of cancers - John T Reed had a prostate cancer detected by them, and I would suspect part of the reason dogs are not used more in cancer detection has something to do with your old enemy Big Pharma and its conflict of...

    The Coronavirus Pandemic thread III

    Simeon, if you're going to post screed, can you at least post the actual relevant portion of the article for analysis and not just the misleading headline, or at least not force me to suffer Google Translate to read the link? So: bunch of dudes publish a paper and say that with quarantining...

    Coronavirus Economic, Cultural, Political Ramifications

    Whenever you finish a book, post it here

    Prey, Michael Crichton I did finish, but only by skipping a fair number of pages towards the end. I can see why this one didn't sell. Crichton reached too far with the plausibility on this one, let the book descend into too much technobabble, and turned the story into Invasion of the Body...
