    The evidence that the USA was built on Christian values and that the people still possess strong Christian values will be shown after the election when a man with no redeeming qualities will win the election for a second time purely on the basis of his Christian background. If he loses I will concede the point.
    If nothing else, this thread is making me feel better about the fact that Americans don't have a good grasp on their own politics. Apparently, we're not alone. 😛

    Trump has not the slightest bit of Christian background. The Religious Right votes for him because he promises them anti-abortion judges. It's a transactional arrangement.

    The USA is a country built on Christian principles regardless what the constitution says.
    So you just make claims without evidence now?

    Or do you actually have some.

    Are chess 960 servers operating in Red Hot Pawn? 😳
    You mean, does RHP support the chess variant Chess960?

    No, it doesn't. At least, not yet.

    Faith is confidence or trust . Atheists trust, or are confident, that there is no God, I know there is a big argument about this but its really a petty one. What is the correct thing to say then?
    Perhaps something like "openly declare their Atheism".

    In politics, the argument of, "if they were confident in their belief, they would say it out loud", ignores the fact that politics is very much about getting votes, which heavily relies on telling people what they want to hear [and avoiding saying that which people do not want to hear].

    Show me a politician that always speaks with full confidence in their own beliefs, and I'll show you one who doesn't win elections.

    The USA is God-fearing nation built on principles of Christianity. Americans should not be afraid to promote the words of the Pledge of Allegiance. If atheists are shy about promoting their atheist faith, then the only reasonable conclusion is that they are unsure of their belief.
    There is no "atheist faith".

    Belief without evidence. I don't intend to continue this topic, there will always be arguments for and against.
    The great thing about that excuse, is that it works for most topics. 🙂

    You can lead a herd of horses Back to Spirituality, but you can't keep them there. 😂😂

    Listening to gossip again? Does that make any sense to you? What about God? Gods hates sin and evil. Would that make God and sinner himself? If a man is say a gambler, a womanizers', a thief, a liar etc etc .. why would he hate fellow gamblers, womanizers, thieves, liars etc ? Sounds like BS. But then look who posted it. Not surprised.
    I believe Becker speaks of the psychologist concept of "projection". While not all loathing is based on it, the concept is valid in some cases.

    This is basically the solution idea right here.

    All you have to do is play ...b7-b5 in one move, and then h2-h4 in one move, and you've got it.

    Buddhism is a form of spirituality which does not require belief in, or presuppose the existence of, supernatural entities.
    Hah! Another "soothing irrationality"!

    Then again, who are theists to talk in this respect!

    Hi BigDogg,

    Got it in 23.

    [pgn]
    1. b4 c5 2. b5 Nc6 3. bxc6 d6 4. c7 Bd7 5. c8=N e6 6. Ne7 b6 7. Ng6 hxg6 8. Ba3 Rh4 9. c3 Ra4 10. e4 b5 11. Bc4 b4 12. Qc2 b3 13. d3 b2 14. Nd2 b1=N 15. Nf1 Nd2 16. O-O-O Nb1 17. Re1 g5 18. Re3 Nd2 19. Rg3 Nb1 20. Rg4 Nd2 21. h4 Nb1 22. Nh2 Nd2 23. Nhf3 Nb1 [/pgn]
    That's better.

    You already know that Black's move ...b6 is a wasted move, as is White's Nf1.

    You can also see from your try that black has plenty of time to move the promoted N around.

    So, instead of white playing a move like Nf1 (with a horse that has no extra time to move) to get out of the way of a horse with tons of time to move, try getting the black N out of the way first... Way, way out of the way!

    You correctly noted that I believe an unborn baby is a child.

    And then a sentence later you accuse me of misogyny -- as if I am Pro-life because I specifically want to curtail women's "liberty."

    This is harassment if you continue misrepresenting my view as misogynistic when nothing I have said has ever indicated that my motive is to take away the "rights" of women. I am fighting to protect unborn girls.
    Is it also harrassment if, after gettin' her preggerz offa Tindr, she comes at you fo' child support, even tho you say you ain't her baby-daddy? 🤣🤣🤣
