Arsenic and Fluoride; Watch the Double-Speak

I rarely have mentioned my complete opposition to community water fluoridation on this blog.  I suppose it would be appropriate seeing how it is illustrative of so many of concerns I have regarding liberty and big government and progressivism.   Today I learned of a controversy which just seems to be so ironic that I can’t help myself.

If you’ve heard about the Dr. Oz expose about arsenic in apple juice, then you might guess where this is going.   If not, take a look at this article, from which I will extract quotes to use in making my point.

Watson, Racism, Evolution, Herr Professor, Reprise

Well, I suppose at some point this cycle of responses between Herr Professor and myself is going to have to end.  I thought it kinda funny to basically be in a conversation with the gent, but of course in the abstract, where I pretend that my comments are to some ethereal group of readers of my blog when in fact they are actually directly mainly at him.  At some point, I guess you just got to move on.

Omnipotence, Omniscience, Etc.

I’m always amazed at how the same things come up over and over again from atheists. The funny thing is that they always think they’re bringing some new revelation, as though Christians and theists in general haven’t been hearing- and answering- these things for thousands of years.  Sparking this blog is this thread and the two threads it references: http://www.sntjohnny.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=2199.

A robust understanding of the ‘omnis’ of Christian theism… omnipotent, omniscient, etc… is easily gained by anyone spending time engaging solid Christian material rather than taking cues from skeptic’s ‘objections’ so I’m not going to expound on that too … continue reading...
