And you have not left on what forces, on what time and you don’t know how to get out from this vicious circle. The first thing to understand…

    Clapback: “Does the Bible Permit a Woman to Preach?” 1 Corinthians 14:34 Eisegesis Part 3

    Hello and welcome to part three in my clap back series to John MacArthur’s recent sermon entitled, “Does the Bible Permit Women to Preach?” And I intend to go through every scripture reference that he made in the sermon to show how he has imposed meaning onto the text rather than extract meaning from it. Before I get into this week’s topic which is a return to first Corinthians chapter 14, I want to take a brief moment to ask you to please like, subscribe, share and above all, please do comment. I very much enjoy hearing what your thoughts are, even if I radically disagree. Now before I really…

    U.S. military intervention in the Dominican Republic

    [♪upbeat music♪] This Week in Army History In 1965 during the height of the Cold War, Americans were concerned about the Communist influence in the Western hemisphere. This was particularly true with respect to the Caribbean Basin following Cuba’s Communist Revolution in 1959. The Dominican Republic endured a constant struggle for political control between Communist-sympathizing leftist groups and conservative business and military leaders. On April 24, a group of leftist forces unexpectedly deposed the Dominican leadership. Crowds took to the streets throughout the capital of Santo Domingo and quickly overwhelmed the Dominican security forces. The US ambassador, W. Tapley Bennett, Jr, described the situation as “collective madness.” To authorities in…

    Obeying Authority | Unethical Psychology

    Old school psychology is a lot of fun. Learning about the old experiments where they’d trick the participants into doing something silly is probably the first thing that hooks people. It’s even more fun when you can spot those effects in the real world… You just flinched, didn’t you? Congratulations, you’ve just been conditioned, there won’t be any more beeps after this, you can adjust your volume. Pavlov’s Dog, Skinner’s Box, and even social experiments on conformity, where a participant knowingly gives the wrong answer in order to fit in with all of the wrong people around them are hilarious and interesting enough that they’re taught in every Intro Psych…
