LOL!
Once I was standing outside my place of business (almost out of sight of anyone), when I saw this rather large creature in very stylish clothes approaching the front door; She saw me and made a beeline over and commenced to tell me how bad smoking was for me - you know, the typical "browbeating with love and concern for my health" thingy. No matter how much I would say "yeah, yeah, I know, yada yada" she wouldn't relent. She (of course) was a former smoker - no more need be said.
This woman was probably about 5' tall with a 72"+ girth minimum, an easy 450 #'s if not more.
I finally couldn't take anymore, and told her I was happy that she had successfully quit smoking, but it looked like she had really just replaced one addiction with another. It's not my nature, generally, to be a jerk, but there are times..........
There are old smokers but, as a rule, there aren't many old fat people.

Your mistakingly assuming that God needs to judge us. Of course He doesn't need to, He already knows what we've done.
The judgment of God is designed to do a few things to us. It's designed to frighten us, to sober us, to humble us and to reassure us.
Your first statement said none of that was necessary.

Would evidence derived from an M.D. at an American research university, 10 years as department head of psychiatry, 20 years as research professor, gathered over 40 years in 5 different countries, authoring 300 papers and 14 books on the subject, exposing data to rigorous scientific standards carry any weight at all?

Nah, probably not.

Dude...
Spring break is fine. A fall break could be implemented too, and no more days would be missed - since holidays waste time anyway - as far time lost number wise for the kids. If there weren't holidays.

Summer vacation is a given anyway.

Euripides summed up your response to Wilderide best: Talk sense to a fool and he calls you foolish.

Your and RR's responses to any post can be summed up thusly:

A stupid man's report of what a clever man says can never be accurate, because he unconsciously translates what he hears into something he can understand.

The Declaration gives the underlying rationale for rights. They were said to derive from God.

That's why they formed the nation and wrote the Constitution.

Tough luck that you don't like that.

Tucker? Tucker is not a research scientist but a psychiatrist. A biased psychiatrist. He thinks descriptive statistics can prove or disprove things. The Strength of Case Scale is meaningless and measures nothing but coincidences. His studies are NOT scientific, NOT peer-reviewed, and NOT credible.

Is there any fraud or hoax you won't buy into? Hell, even your inflated self-importance is a scam.

I didn't propose that I was providing evidence.

I asked a question about the nature of evidence and objectivity.

Thanks for pointing out my failure to do something I didn't attempt to do.

I never heard of him.

Well kid, it sure as all hell did not, nor would not frighten me.
It has not and will not sober me. I can do that already myself.
I already am humble when and where appropriate.
I have all the reassurance I need already.
AND
If there is no need to judge us ... as you say in your first sentence ... then intelligent folks want to know why you say it is needed to frighten, sober, humble, and reassure us, in your very next sentence.
Seems to me that the prodigal son's father had a better feel for love than how you describe your God's love through a "judgment" rather than a simple gesture of open arms and a big hug and welcome home embrace.
<smile>
The judgement is meant to remind us that we will have to answer for what we do in life. The judgment isn't for God, it's for us.

Look at how societies act without God, look at the cesspool of a place America has become without God prevalent in society. People that don't believe in God don't even consider eternal judgement so there's nothing to control their actions or curb their every whim.

Oh, well if he is has a PhD AND wrote books then it must be true. LOL! You are such a sucker for the appeal to authority fallacy, aren't ya Buck?

But I do find the "exposing data to rigorous scientific standards" part intriguing. Please elaborate on that part. What was the result of the peer review process when his papers were published in scientific journals?
