  1. Past hour
  2. @Pioneer1 who cares about compliments? I prefer accuracy. ... I corrected Troy's description because while he's assigned it to me - it has nothing to do with me. And yes people are included in the set of living things but to focus on people would be a reductionist view of my outlook. I would provide first aid to a person just as I would provide first aid to a plant. I would relocate a person who seeks to harm me just like I would relocate a spider.
  3. Now wouldn't this "all" also INCLUDE people? The man is giving you a compliment, why are you giving him a hard time....lol.
  4. To me, knowledge is MORE than just tweaked information but it's also information that is TRUE. You can focus on piece of information, but if that information turns out to be false it could lead to bad results.....and shouldn't be passed along or passed down as a body of knowledge. Troy You mentioned in a post that if it were your choice you would have kept Jet and scrapped Ebony, I'm a little curious as to why? Was it the debt Ebony was in that would have made it dead weight fiscally? BTW..... I still remember going to barbershops as a kid and going through all of Jet magazines checking out the "Beauties of the Week", LOL.
  5. @Troy wow I didn't know that's how I appear to others. Welp, here it is. Smart is not how I would describe myself. I'm curious and sometimes that may appear to be passion but it's more of an obsession to understand the its properties. I build on a foundation of information so I don't have to think deeply - so while it may appear I think deeply, its actually an intimate understanding of topic. And no, I don't have love for people. I have a love for all living things and their ability to express life that will lead to evolution.
  6. a student loan paid, and your student loan is paid and your student loan is paid too... The graduating class of Morehouse College had commencement Keynote Speaker Billionaire Robert F. Smith give them a send off into the real world...but in addition to parting words he will allow these seniors to be debt-free to the tune of $40 million. Wow just wow...

  7. Today
  8. Easy, the laws of physics have not changed. Which is also why we know how the planets were aligned
  9. True. I need to do so as well 🙂
  10. No I did not. It was not my decision and i did not perform the procedure.
  11. @Pioneer1 what you wrote about engineering is true. But for Del. "pedigree" holds no importance.
  12. Well said brother. I am also exploring different ways of interacting.
  13. Troy So... you have no problem with walking on water, resurrection, parting of the seas, etc.... this is what gives you pause? Actually I don't believe any of this took place. I could be wrong, but how can I prove or disprove something that happened so long ago? This is why I'm asking Chevdove how can it be proven through astronomy and the study of planetary movements. She's trying to explain it to me but I'm clearly not her best student...lol. Del You're correct that "Beta" is Greek for the the 2nd letter of their alphabet. I should have made it clearer that when I said "Beta" means "house of" that's what it means in GE'EZ which is a Semitic language of Ethiopia similar to Hebrew.
  14. Troy Obviously I don't know the details of the matter, but you certainly don't sound like one who has EVER been morally deprived nor even like one who would have had a habit of making grossly irrational and irresponsible decisions in their youth. I'm sure you did what you felt and thought was the best thing to do at the time so you shouldn't burden yourself with the past. The important question is did you raise the children YOU DID bring in this world correctly or atleast as best you could? Del You're correct that creating life is different than sustaining it. It's a difference most conservatives don't seem to "get" nor do they want to. They'll fight like hell for a human to be brought into this world but don't show much interest in keeping them here once they've arrived.
  15. Zaji I see being a part of the AmericaS and being AmericaN (U.S.A Citizen) as different. All those places can be a part of the AmericaS, in fact. But not be AmericaN. So it really depends on what is meant. Based on maps online, the attached is what is actually, in modern times, considered The Americas Welcome back to the site, I missed your input. Yes you're right that the most common term used in refering to the Western Hemisphere is the "Americas" (plural) and for the most part it's the term I also use; but because of the misinformation and confusion that leads so many to believe that ONLY the U.S.A should be called America....I often use the term "America" singularly for shock value to initiate conversation. For example, I'll call Mexico or Brazil "America" expecting disagreement which will then lead to me correcting them and as it follows a conversations will usually open up over the matter.   Del Expertise in engineering does not make you an expert in statistics. Doesn't both fields require you to think logically and in terms of numbers and mathematics? If so, I would think the same basic intellectual skills that lay at the foundation of both careers could be used by one field to understand the other. Similar to how an expert in Espanol would atleast have some familiarity with Italiano since both have their roots in the same Latin foundation.
  16. Yesterday
  17. This is the beginning of a new era for me on this site. I will TRY to be more understanding of other people's views and more appreciative of the knowledge and information other people are presenting. Some may ask what has caused me to seek a change in my demeanor. Well......Del, Troy, and Cynique have been advising me for quite some time to "expand" my thinking and not see things just from a narrow selfish perspective but it wasn't until I reviewed Mel's African American Culture thread....OVER AND OVER AGAIN....and how adamant I was in my error that I realized how embarassingly foolish and down right irritating it may have seemed to others. Another thing I noticed about my conduct was that as much as I liked people supporting my views and giving me positive "likes"..... I almost never did it for others. So as I've said I will try to be more appreciative and infact this appreciation will start with the owner and Moderator Troy. Thank you bro for providing me and others with a platform to express ourselves...the good and the bad...as well as a safe space for up and coming AfroAmerican authors to promote their talents and intellectual gifts.
  18. We had this conversation years ago. And you started bitching about how that was years ago. So fur get it
  19. True, since there is apparently no such thing as objective sensitivity. Here we go... ok, point to a single article I've written to support your statement. It never ceases to amaze what people will without a shred if evidence....
  20. Last week
  21. Beta is Greek not Hebrew @Pioneer1. Like i said my work is done here. Pioneer can provide sone type of guidance.
  22. Creating a life is different than sustaining one.
  23. I guess i am more democratic. I dont think my knowledge in the esoteric means a monologue. The differnce between me being overly sensitive and you being insensitive is perception. I prefer to be seen as sensitive to another person's feelings and positions than insensitive. Expertise in engineering does not make you an expert in statistics. As is evident when you use statistics to try to prove a point.
  24. 14 Million Black babies aborted since 1973 is a staggering number, one that I've unfortunately contributed to and regret to this day. But I understand not everyone feels the way I do. On some level we are terminating a life. That 14 million number could have been made a lot smaller through education, and better access to birth control.
  25. @Delano when we were forced into segregated communities. We ran business and built communities -- some quite prosperous -- we had too do this, for there were no other options. Today our options are being restricted again. While segrations is not longer the law. It is the reality even in Places like NYC. Schools were sgregated when I went and they may be more segregated now. The Stuyvesant HS is a popular example. Today, for example, there are more Black owned bookstores than there were five years ago. Amazon is not serving us, Borders closed, B&N is scaling back. These are opportunities, not justy in the book space, but in other areas as well. If Farrakhan can't be in Facebook, he can reach his audience on his own website and people who want to hear him will go there. I'm not the only person who has left Facebook and I will not be the last. I think (hope) it will be a growing trend. It is not that people like me don't engage online any longer -- we just go where we are treated better. I've visited Lipstick Alley in recently years looking for alternatives to Facebook -- I'm sure I'm not the only one.
  26. I see being a part of the AmericaS and being AmericaN (U.S.A Citizen) as different. All those places can be a part of the AmericaS, in fact. But not be AmericaN.
