    You seem to be missing the point. Altruism doesn’t exist, we are all motivated by selfish desires. For some, religion offers relief from life’s stressors.... it’s selfish. Selfish is not bad when tempered by morality.

    Who can honestly say they aren’t selfish creatures at heart. I am o my willing to sacrifice for a small group of people. MY group of people.

    T_McD replied to a thread Dutch Oven Help in Cookin' Recipe's
    Granted it has been a decade since I’ve used a Dutch Oven but we always completely covered with the lid and had a generous layer on bottom. Either coals or charcoal, didn’t seem to make much difference. Basically enough that it’s covered but not...

    What stopped my holster box at 2 is the decision to pocket carry exclusively. Lotsa compromises to that decision but it does make holster selection quite easy.

    My sentiments exactly. I often wonder why more people cannot seem to accept an “Who knows?” answer to the origin of life. I taught high school biology and the topic was always a popular one, but the honest truth is we just don’t know how life...

    Just have to say I am not at all into blackpowder or paper patching and this was an excellent read. Very informative and down to earth.

    This is a rather fundamental issue. Morality is distinct from any deity.

    I agree I don’t know what term fits me. I center my life on my family. I don’t derive a higher purpose from philosophical ideas. I enjoy the thought experiment, but I don’t base my morality on abstract thinking. I do believe in a higher...

    Couple of thoughts: 1) All religions are faith based. Faith to me is belief in spite of insufficient evidence. It is a misguided enterprise to conflate faith with facts. 2) these threads are a great example of why their are so many religions...

    T_McD replied to a thread pig hunting w/cannon in Muzzleloading.
    I think everyone can see it’s a bit on the tacky side, but we seem to disagree on whether that’s good or bad. And why hunting got brought up, I don’t understand. This is not hunting, would you care if he aimed the cannon at prairie dogs? This is...

    Both are offensive. I create only the finest artisanal custom ammo.

    T_McD replied to a thread Black guns in Factory Rifles
    The difference is largely in the eye of the beholder. I strongly dislike the AR platform, so to me there is no difference except your just that much more an idiot for buying an expensive one.:kidding:

    If I knew where it was sourced from $100 bucks for all would be reasonable. Since you donít, price gets slashed, maybe $60 bucks for all. Unsorted brass is just not worth a whole lot.

    T_McD replied to a thread Lee load data for 9mm in Cast Boolits
    I will also add that powder puff loads are generally a dumb idea as well. I had some 38 special loaded to be “comfy” to shoot out of my snub nose. Got rid of the snubby and got a 4 inch barrel model 10. Wouldn’t ya know about 1 in 10 of my “comfy”...

    T_McD replied to a thread Lee load data for 9mm in Cast Boolits
    The danger in having all the fancy measuring devices and tons of data is when you start to believe you know more than people who do this for a living. It’s really not difficult folks, load midrange load data and use a couple different sources for...
