    H.G. Wells vs. George Orwell: Their debate on whether science is humanity’s best hope continues today. CONTRIBUTOR: Richard Gunderman In the midst of contemporary science’s stunning discoveries and innovations – for example, 2017 alone brought the editing of a human embryo’s genes, the location of an eighth continent under the ocean and the ability to reuse a spacecraft’s rocket boosters – it’s easy to forget that there’s an ongoing debate over science’s capacity to save humankind. Seventy-five years ago, two of the best-known literary figures of the 20th century, H.G. Wells and George Orwell, carried on a lively exchange over...

During his free period Oct. 17 at the public school near Kansas City, Lonsdale joined a spontaneous conversation among acquaintances about the nature of Islam.

    Hillary Clinton was "discombobulated" by Donald Trump standing behind her at the second presidential debate in October, the former Democratic candidate acknowledged in an interview to promote her new book. "It was so discombobulating," Clinton in an interview that will be aired on CBS this Sunday. In her forthcoming narrative of the election, "What Happened," Clinton reviews how she lost to Trump. In Sunday's interview, she pointed to that moment, one that attracted significant social media attention at the time, as a possible instance in which she may have missed an opportunity. …

    Hillary Clinton said her "skin crawled" when President Trump stood behind her as she answered questions during the second presidential debate last year, she reveals in her new book. [Snip] "It was incredibly uncomfortable. He was literally breathing down my neck. My skin crawled," Clinton writes. "It was one of those moments where you wish you could hit pause and ask everyone watching, 'Well, what would you do? Do you stay calm; keep smiling and carry on as if he weren't repeatedly invading your space? Or do you turn, look him in the eye and say loudly and clearly, 'Back...

    Hillary Clinton refers to Donald Trump as a "creep" and says her "skin crawled" during one of their debates in an except from her upcoming 2016 election memoir What Happened. In their town hall-style debate on Oct. 9 where the candidates were allowed to walk around the stage, Trump at various points walked behind Clinton as she spoke. MSNBC aired her narration of that section of the book Tuesday morning, where Clinton recounted her thoughts that she was "incredibly uncomfortable." "This is not ok, I thought," she wrote. "It was the second presidential debate, and Donald Trump was looming behind...

    The insult is that gubernatorial debates in Virginia are little more than smaller versions of the carefully packaged affairs we’ve all witnessed at the national level. What people watch for and what the press and political junkies delight in are those “gotcha” moments that make for great copy and easy attack lines. But let’s indulge Gillespie on his demand for many debates and ignore his own ducking and dodging on the issue in the waning months of the Republican primary. Let’s have 10 debates. Or 19, as the Roanoke Times has suggested. But let’s also insist on a couple of...

    There have now been rebuttals of the Revelation 12 Sign by Joel Richardson, Danny Faulkner, Tim McHyde, Billy Crone, and now J.L. Robb from Omega Letter.  We've been studying and teaching the Revelation 12 Sign since 2012 and after nearly five years this great sign has weathered every attack that could be thrown at it. We addressed all of the rebuttals, point-by-point (see here, here, here, and here) and what we discovered in the process is that all of the arguments against the #REV12SIGN fall flat.  J.L. Robb's arguments have finally proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that...

    Candidate struck dumb by opponent's question. Would that not strike you as a dramatic moment in a political debate? You probably would agree and so do most media outlets that reported on the June 6 debate between Karen Handel and Jon Ossoff running in the June 20 special election for Georgia's 6th Congressional District. In fact, many reports headlined the moment that Ossoff was asked by Handel who he would vote for in that election. Mediaite was among the outlets that featured that debate moment by observing that Karen Handel Silences Jon Ossoff With One Simple Question During Congressional Debate:

    06/06/2017 11:15:49 PM PDT · by Helicondelta · 67 replies ^ | 06/07/2017
    Democratic congressional candidate Jon Ossoff struggled through a brutal four minutes in Georgia’s special election debate Tuesday night after Republican Karen Handel called him out for not living in the district he is hoping to represent. As part of the debate format, the candidates were given the opportunity to ask each other questions. Handel turned to Ossoff and asked him a question he couldn’t answer: who he was going to vote for in the special election. As someone who lives outside the district, Ossoff is unable to cast a vote for himself. It went downhill from there for Ossoff. After...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is calling for "immediate" debate over President Trump's use of force following reported "saber-rattling" on North Korea. “Every day, the President gives Congress reason to return and debate the use of force. The President’s escalation in Syria and his saber-rattling on North Korea demand serious and immediate Congressional scrutiny," Pelosi said in a statement Thursday. “Speaker [Paul] Ryan [R-Wis.] must call Congress back into session for classified briefings and debate. Congress must do its duty and honor our responsibility to the Constitution," she added. Pelosi urged Ryan last week to call Congress back into...

    House Republicans have finally released their legislative blueprint for repealing and replacing Obamacare. President Trump has indicated his support of the proposed legislation, while leaving the door open for negotiations. Key changes involving repeal of Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion and the Obamacare subsidies will not take full effect until 2020. However, the proposed replacement for Obamacare provides a path to real reform, while at the same time not throwing out the baby with the bath water. The proposed legislation would preserve the prohibition on denying coverage to people with pre-existing conditions or charging them more for such coverage, and it would...

    The 2017 Maryland General Assembly session recently started with several issues receiving the majority of attention. We have all heard about both medical marijuana and Gov. Larry Hogan's "road kill bill." As someone who has spent a lifetime involved in the highway industry, I would like to share my thoughts on the latter topic ("Hogan's 'road kill bill' lie," Jan. 5).We have all noticed the severe deterioration in our highway system, be it local, state or interstate. There are many reasons for this and I will share them all with you. However, the overriding principle is that our roads are...
