A computer makes a decision in a nano-second, which is a billionth of second and falls below the level of human perception. The human mind cannot conceive of how fast this is.

To be superstitious is a sin, in the Catholic church.

Religions always call other religions, superstitious.

Talking of the catholic church, in the dark ages, there was no discernment between good or bad witches and warlocks, they were indiscriminately burned at the stake.

Wikipedia:
“The name Udmurt comes from *odo-mort 'meadow people,' where the first part represents the Permic root *od(o) 'meadow, glade, turf, greenery', and the second part murt means 'person' (cf. Komi mort, Mari mari), probably an early borrowing from an Iranian language (such as Scythian): *mertä or *martiya 'person, man' (cf. Persian mard), which is thought to have been borrowed from the Indo-Aryan term *maryá- 'man', literally 'mortal, one who is bound to die' (< PIE *mer- 'to die'), compare Old Indic márya ‘young warrior’ and Old Indic marut ‘chariot warrior’, both connected specifically with horses and chariots.[6] This is supported by a document dated 1557, in which the Udmurts are referred to as lugovye lyudi 'meadow people', alongside the traditional Russian name otyaki.[7]”

Very nice National Costume and headdress they have..

The DJIA is flat over Trump's presidency.

Dating a stripper is like eating a noisy bag of chips in church. Everyone looks at you in disgust, but deep down they want some too.

Hospitalized coronavirus patients given hydroxychloroquine were 50 percent less likely to die of the brutal infection than those who did not receive the drug in a Henry Ford Health System study of 2,541 people.

In the 2005 Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District case, Judge Jones totally pwned Behe and the theory of irreducible complexity.

There are lots of ‘extra’ states of matter that people don’t know about. One is plasma!
