He's saying that Trump did abuse his power, which you simply cannot believe as a faithful cult member. And he's arguing that Trump is a monarch, and the king can do no wrong.

The Bible is a document written by humans. It's got the same flaws as any other, such as incomplete application of editing changes. Archeological evidence shows that the Hebrews/Jews were originally as polytheistic as their neighbors in the region. They even had many of the same gods and goddesses, such as Marduk and Asherah. It was an individual now known as the "prophet" Elijah wh

Yeah, it doesn't have to be "the greys" from Zeta Reticuli. It could be an experimental technology developed right here on Earth. Maybe even by the same government that operates the carrier battle group. The Nimitz was apparently testing a new integrated radar system that combined radar and other data from all of the ships in the battle group to create a unified battlefield view. Could

The US Navy has video of the (in)famous 2004 UFO incident, but will not release it because it would damage "National Security"... Since this is the US Navy coming out and admitting it, I don't think this qualifies for GT&P.

There are more neurons (nerve cells) in your digestive system than in your spine. Only the brain itself has more neurons than the gut. So the phrase "gut feeling" might be more than just some random metaphor. :)

By definition, "universe" means everything that exists. So yes, the phrase "many universes" is nonsense. Many worlds is a bit less out of focus, but still not really right. It's many different possible states of this world. Many timelines would be the more accurate way to describe it, I think. All this comes down to is the implications of a couple of facts that have emerged fr

The damage is our relationship with Iraq, not Iran. I cannot imagine how the current Iranian regime could hate the US any more, so it's not really a question of damage in that relationship. But the way this was done, hitting this foreign dignitary (he was not just a military figure) in someone else's sovereign territory, has done huge damage to the way Iraqis and many other Arab populations regar

That's the real hazard. WW I started because a bunch of complex alliances pulled many nations in to help their allies until there were two big coalitions. As the US and its allies struggle with Iran and its allies, even if both sides do not really want open 'war', there is a very real possibility of complex interconnections, technological and political, drawing more and more unexpected participan

Yes, he will not accept even a full trial and conviction in the Senate. They would have to send in Federal Marshals, or maybe his own Secret Service detail since they are actually under Congress rather than the executive branch, and carry him out of the White House like a sack of potatoes.

Is this some silly high school experiment? Nope, it's serious research at a major university, and it looks like they have learned useful things about rat brains and perhaps some psychology applicable to other animals -- like humans.

The latest in a series of patents for devices right out of science fiction has been filed by the US Navy. They all seem to be coming from a particular engineer in the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division. Since working prototypes have not been publicly demonstrated for any of these technologies, it is uncertain if they have actually been developed or if these are 'speculative' or 'preemptiv

Yes, as I said, the nuclear option is only for the small ones. And of course they could not be targeted close to Earth. That's the meaning of "powerful enough launcher" -- something that can get the warhead out to an approaching rock before it's much closer than the Moon. They did not "attempt" to detonate a nuclear warhead in space. They succeeded. Starfish Prime was real

Depends on your definition of "short notice". Of course if we see something just a few days out, we don't have any technology to get to it fast enough. But, the one from a few days ago was only a football field or two across. We might have destroyed it with nuclear weapons if we had launchers powerful enough. We could develop launchers powerful enough. A shower of smaller fragments w

Yes, this is a glaring gap in both science and public safety. We have the ability to search for these asteroids and find nearly all of them before they actually hit the Earth. We have not been bothering to do so, which means we could get a very nasty surprise at any moment. The more telescopes of this sort that are built and kept operating, the safer we will be.

The article you link to doesn't even mention Wyden. And the mistake in Butina's case was on a particular aspect of her approach to working on behalf of the Russian govt/intel services, not the actual fact. She didn't try to use sex to influence anyone, but she was convicted of being an unregistered agent of a foreign power and is currently in prison.

WTF? What "office" does the NRA occupy that it could be removed? Now, if they are found to have been acting as the agent of a foreign power, there is law to deal with that. "Prosecute" is not the same thing as "impeach" however.

The decline of government funding for science, other than military-related projects, has left a gap in modern science that will hinder progress if not corrected. One of the responses has been an increase in private "patrons" funding science. There are certain advantages to this. Many of the earliest scientists were funded by wealthy patrons if they were not independently wealthy themsel

What he is saying is that they privately think he's gone too far but are too afraid of the political backlash to actually vote against him on the record. If at least 18 of them find some courage, we might actually see the first conviction of a president for misconduct in office.

Very interesting. This is a new sort of antibiotic resistance. Usually there is an internal defense of some sort, the microbes evolve to process what was once a poison and simply become immune. As usual with evolution, if just a few of a given type of bacteria have a mechanism that lets them deal with a toxin, they will be selected when the toxin appears in huge quantities and wipes out the compe

The topic of non-fossil petroleum is controversial, but not completely without science to support it. The "defining" work is The Deep Hot Biosphere by Thomas Gold. A number of Russian geologists have also pursued this area of research. There are also theories of abiotic petroleum, that it somehow originates from geochemical processes independent of life.
