Re: What's your excuse for not homeschooling your children?

Our kids have attended public schools. Our kids have attended a charter school. We have also homeschooled our kids (99.9% my wife did it all, she’s a rockstar). All three options can be good. All three options can also be bad . This ☝️. My children have never attended regular public schools, but ha...

Re: An Evil, Pernicious Agenda is Afoot

Computerization and globalization has made things so much cheaper. Just looks at the average house size. When my parents were kids, houses were lucky to have on...

Re: Unvaxxed with Autism? (POLL)

So, Artexerxes, are you claiming that since autism-like traits pre-date vaccines, that vaccines do not cause autism? No, the prior claim that I was responding to was "Autism started when they began injecting children with mercury." That is false. Ok, fair enough. I agree - I don't think a...

Re: Poll: How was the Earth made? (See notes below)

I'm going to stick my neck out and argue for a "young earth creation", which I'll define as 6 one-thousand year creative periods. I'm arguing for this based on 1) Jesus caused a fig tree to "presently wither away" - right before his Apostle's eyes, according to the scriptural acc...
