THE SKEPTIC ARENA



This web site is dedicated to the eradication of irrational thinking.
Rationalists are those, whose thinking is strictly guided by the laws of logic.
Rationalists only accept as true, that which has been proven to be true,
through the application of the scientific method.

Conservative judges overturned precedent
and trashed the separation of Church and State
in the "Trinity Lutheran v. Comer" case of 2017.

Just as they did in many other cases where they overturned precedent,
they tried to claim that their decision was narrow and would not be abused.
But just like the Hobby Lobby and Citizens United cases ... they were lying.

Opponents of Church/State separation waste no time in using their newly-granted powers

America is on a path to become Saudi Arabia West ...
only with a different invisible ghost.

One of the two richest men in the world (Jeff Bezos)
and his company Amazon (one of the richest in the world)
are headquartered in a state where they pay NO income tax.
So what did they do when Seattle tried to get them to contribute to a tax
that would help relieve the homeless problem in that city?

They strong-armed the city into backing down

I'm sure that is exactly what Jesus would have done.

We are being prepped for war

"World military spending has more than doubled
in inflation-adjusted dollars since the end of the Cold War,
and international transfers of major weapons
have steadily climbed since the early 2000s
 "

So why are we being prepped for war?

Because it is extremely lucrative ... for the Plutocrats

Republicans continue to find ways to fund their tax giveaway to the rich ...

by taking it from the poor

I just love this part ...

"The legislative proposal seeks to restore dignity and self-sufficiency to tenants ....

If any one of you actually believe that the purpose of jacking up the rents of poor people
was for the purpose of restoring their dignity and self-sufficiency,
please leave this web site and never come back ...

You do not belong here

The longest animal the world has ever known was up to 55 meters long (180 feet).

But it wasn't a dinosaur ... it is still alive today

And as if being 180 feet long wasn't scary enough ... it's also poisonous.
