    The biggest problem is that most people think the Commandments were only meant for others.

    What is the difference between “Facts” and “The Facts”? Normally people have some facts, but not all facts, before having an opinion. Does voting count as voicing an opinion?

    The bit about “knowing facts” wouldn’t fit in with the bible. One of the first stories is how a magic apple turned the inhabitants into beings who suddenly knew right from wrong, and got kicked out of the garden over it. The historic “Indiana Pi Bill” tried to change the value of Pi to exactly 3, because the bible said so. And today, public education in many states still restrict the teaching of science, in favour of course material which simply explains “God did it”.

    “Knowing facts” suggests that one is open to learning. Emotions strongly affect learning. Not being emotionally positioned to be able to accept the reality of a constantly changing world blocks one’s ability to learn. Right-wing populists are basically a bunch of EMOs, incapable of learning…………………….questions?:

    Since 1985 the GOP has been working to dumb down public education, in order to criticize public education for not doing a very good job, all to get Congress and states to give them tax breaks for private school tuition. Another tax break for the wealthy. What was taken out was the teaching of critical thinking. Can anyone figure out why we are where we are today?

    Of course, today’s “Christians” ONLY pay any attention to any of the other Ten Commandments when it is convenient for THEM to do so. But, they expect EVERYONE ELSE to obey ALL OF THEM at ALL TIMES.

    Reminds me of the problem we’ve had with the local press for years when it comes to their coverage of certain wealthy citizens and elected officials; they know the facts but will only print the parts that paint that person in a positive light and conveniently leave out the messy bits. They’ve been doing it for decades. It’s called LYING BY OMISSION.

    No “perfect” creator entity would ever have set loose among others beings which do not adhere to that commandment.

    Which doesn’t prove one doesn’t exist.
