To some, universalism means eventual reconciliation with god or the trinity, rather than equality among people. Even Satan and the fallen angels according to some. Human equality is a different matter, though we tend to believe in it. Do gnostics reject the old testament? Universalist tend to try to...

Should the public start wearing body cams?

I'm hearing a fair amount about cops being being caught lying by surveillance cameras. Also about cops turning off their body cameras. Should the public start wearing their own body cameras?

Is it evil to settle in a land of hurricanes, or earthquakes? Or just maybe unwise?
