I just HAD to research this

"...A statement released to Reason’s Mike Riggs, states:
“The subjects in NMH targets were chosen in order to give officers the experience of dealing with deadly force shooting scenarios with subjects that are not the norm during training. I found while speaking with officers and trainers in the law enforcement community that there is a hesitation on the part of cops when deadly force is required on subjects with atypical age, frailty or condition (one officer explaining that he enlarged photos of his own kids to use as targets so that he would not be caught off guard with such a drastically new experience while on duty).
This hesitation time may be only seconds but that is not acceptable when officers are losing their lives in these same situations. The goal of NMH is to break that stereotype on the range, regardless of how slim the chances are of encountering a real life scenario that involves a child, pregnant woman, etc. If that initial hesitation time can be cut down due to range experience, the officer and community are better served.”.."

Thats doesnt sound like a conspiracy, that sounds like stupidity.
It is used to desensitize firing ON children, in the past they were used to know when not to fire, now they are new targets.

Facts? To quote the wise Swami FR - sounds kind of "truthi" to me....
Science is clear based on faulty data.

It's only the unified field theory that stands the test of reason and which can account for the origin as well as the sentient and materialistic phenomena without violating the causal laws.

Religion belongs to the emotional plane, while rationalism is a manifestation of the intellectual faculty that exceeds the emotional plane. So, the intellectual faculty is superior to the ill-informed and prejudiced emotional instincts. Besides, intellectualism has concrete results in the form of science, technology and reason, while religion has nothing to show by way of positive achievements except for mumbo jumbo beliefs, violence, illogic and fanaticism and thus it's easy to conclude that rationalism is the need of the hour and not religion. Religion should be dumped and is the preserve of retards.

Muhammad simply chose the god Allah out of 360 gods that were worshipped in the Kaaba by the pre-Islamic Arabs and made that his one and only god.

What's so great about this?

Muhammad was a bastard of the highest order who ruined himself and his followers and wrecked havoc on millions of lives.

No wonder, the evil rascal was murdered in keeping with the law of karma - as you sow, so shall you reap!

Interestingly, many members of his family and all his 4 caliphs were also murdered - as you sow, so shall you reap.

Good riddance to bad rubbish.

HUGH,

Former Res & Frijoles are out of the closet - brave-hearts !

Now, it's your turn.

When is your emergence?

At least open the door of the closet a little, Mon.

Stop behaving like a blushing cross-dresser in distress.

If you bothered to actually read my post, I never said I followed the "religion" of panentheism, only that I tend to be sympathetic to the vocabulary and organization of ideas.

I know this is strange terrain for you, being a former cult member.

The notion that I, or anyone for that matter, dont follow ideology for the sake of ideology, but rather we think and then notice the similarities in our ideas with that of others...

I'd corrected your errors on the falsehood called panentheism many months ago by pointing out the flaws, contradictions and shortcomings.

I can do a better job this time to demolish this silly belief (panentheism) which is as absurd as creationism.

I'm not surprised that given your personality traits and intelligence, you sympathize with falsehoods.

In a future piece, I'll explain why panentheism is a falsehood.

Ok, then.
