I think that arguing can actually serve an important role. It allows you to see past your own idealogical echo-chamber. It also forces one to put their ideas out there and have them torn apart.Hey you.
You reading this.
There's better things to do with your time than argue on the internet.
What about all the other verses that line up with dates?Speaking of conspiracy nuts, I find the following quite amusing, I think someone had possibly some fun with it all.
The corona virus was declared a pandemic on 11 March.
Revelation 3:11 KJV:
I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown.
[Latin corona, meaning "crown" or "wreath"]
Revelation 3:10 KJV:
Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.
LMAO. Look around the world and you'll see catastrophic consequences before your very own eyes. The world surely can't be in a worse shape without WHO. I dare say it might actually be a better place if one of the most corrupt organizations in the world will be underfunded.Experts say that if the US severs ties with the WHO, there could be catastrophic consequences to global public health. The US contributes hundreds of millions of dollars to its efforts. “It’s surreal to even be having this conversation, since it’s so hard to get one’s head around the massive implications,” Rebecca Katz, director of the Center for Global Health Science and Security at Georgetown University, told Nature this week.
There be beginnings of riots in Houston.So there are protests in downtown Houston and Atlanta.
Nothing like race riots to cure a fake virus danger. My sincere hope that they are “practicing social distancing” while stealing air fryers from target.Make a separate thread about the riots
Clay County Judge nails it. Shortened by myself.
Before I rule, I'm advising everybody in this room, no public outbursts or displays. The court is still in session until you are told otherwise.
Since the inception of this insanity, the following regulations, rules or consequences have occurred: I won't get COVID if I get an abortion but I will get COVID if I get a colonoscopy. Selling pot is essential but selling goods and services at a family-owned business is not. Pot wasn't even legal and pot dispensaries didn't even exist in this state until five months ago and, in that five months, they have become essential but a family-owned business in existence for five generations is not.
A family of six can pile in their car and drive to Carlyle Lake without contracting COVID but, if they all get in the same boat, they will. We are told that kids rarely contract the virus and sunlight kills it, but summer youth programs, sports programs are cancelled. Four people can drive to the golf course and not get COVID but, if they play in a foursome, they will. If I go to Walmart, I won't get COVID but, if I go to church, I will. Murderers are released from custody while small business owners are threatened with arrest if they have the audacity to attempt to feed their families.
These are just a few of examples of rules, regulations and consequences that are arbitrary, capricious, and completely devoid of anything even remotely approaching common sense.
The defendant in this case orders you to stay home and pronounces that, if you leave the state, you are putting people in danger, but his family members traveled to Florida and Wisconsin because he deems such travel essential. One initial rationale why the rules don't apply to him is that his family farm had animals that needed fed. Try selling that argument to farmers who have had to slaughter their herds because of disruption in the supply chain.
When laws do not apply to those who make them, people are not being governed, they are being ruled. Make no mistake, these executive orders are not laws. They are royal decrees. Illinois citizens are not being governed, they are being ruled. The last time I checked Illinois citizens are also Americans and Americans don't get ruled. The last time a monarch tried to rule Americans, a shot was fired that was heard around the world. That day led to the birth of a nation consensually governed based upon a document which ensures that on this day in this, any American courtroom tyrannical despotism will always lose and liberty, freedom and the constitution will always win.
But wait, they aren't social distancing when they're blowing up target and autozone!A friend observed yesterday that the riots seemed to have cured the CoronaVirus.
But the Norwegian public health authority has published a report with a striking conclusion: the virus was never spreading as fast as had been feared and was already on the way out when lockdown was ordered. ‘It looks as if the effective reproduction rate had already dropped to around 1.1 when the most comprehensive measures were implemented on 12 March, and that there would not be much to push it down below 1…
Camilla Stoltenberg, director of Norway’s public health agency, has given an interview where she is candid about the implications of this discovery. ‘Our assessment now, and I find that there is a broad consensus in relation to the reopening, was that one could probably achieve the same effect – and avoid part of the unfortunate repercussions – by not closing. But, instead, staying open with precautions to stop the spread.’ This is important to admit, she says, because if the infection levels rise again – or a second wave hits in the winter – you need to be brutally honest about whether lockdown proved effective.
Norway, with their small and less-dense population, never went into sustained exponential growth of cases or deaths. So yes, lockdown might have been overkill for them.
Yes, that's the point. Figure out where it does make sense and where it doesn't. A blanket policy makes no sense.Norway, with their small and less-dense population, never went into sustained exponential growth of cases or deaths. So yes, lockdown might have been overkill for them.
I'm always curious how they calculate it considering that so many cases aren't reported. Seems like it's yet another model. I'm not saying the site is wrong, just pointing out that the number is yet another estimate, not real observable data.There was a site that calculated the realtime Rt based on the incoming cases. This is basically the most accurate way we know how to estimate the actual growth rate. Most states had realtime Rt > 2.0 in March, and many were above 3.0. With the short incubation time, that was enough to cause dramatic exponential growth across much of the nation.
Sure. It's like a political survey. They canvas some likely voters, maybe 0.1% of the actual electorate, and use that to extrapolate an estimate. It's not precise because they didn't ask every single person, but they can get a pretty good estimate. Not within 0.001% of course, but close.I'm always curious how they calculate it considering that so many cases aren't reported. Seems like it's yet another model.

People will always want to go to places where there are other people. Bars, restaurants, concerts, etc. Even people who moan about how tiresome other people are will want to be around people occasionally.With the assault of Covid, then looting, makes one wonder if this will push even more business to Ecom instead of retail.
