To me, an echo chamber is when the opinions are strictly opinions and aren't backed up with facts and people agree without using facts and reason. I find that the people who claim "echo chamber" just want everyone to agree with them regardless if they are actually right or not. I'd rather be an "echo chamber" than to just agree and not use facts and reasoning.
Just stumbled across it. I know nothing of the royals. Nothing I say!!!
I don't think it is arrogant at all in reponse to namecalling. Or did the "snowflake" part evade you simply because it fits your narrative?

I'm not the one opining, you two-bit fraud. .
Our negative petty reactions are rooted in our expectations. The more firmly we hold our expectations, the more susceptible we are to anger and resentment.....That you sometimes get mad about him not calling might mean these calls are very important to you (they help you feel loved and secure). If so, you could tell him that.
Maybe. It's a user-pay system. We could reduce the gas tax and socialize it by increasing general revenues to pay for roads. But then people that don't drive on them that much pay the same as someone who is on the road constantly.
Yes I understand how the burden of proof works. I made the claim that Christianity offers its followers a sense of joy and hope in death then I explained how. You seem to be implying that there are secular means to the same end but you?re careful to avoid making the outright claim so you don?t have to defend it. Getting back to the OP, Christianity has made countless positive contributions to both individuals and society at large. It is not the only means by which those positive effects come to people but it is a source. Christianity has also had negative impacts on individuals and society and in the same way it is not the only source of those similar negative impacts. It?s not an either/or situation because it is responsible for both. Just because there are also secular means by which hospitals, orphanages, homeless shelters, etc. come about doesn?t take away from the ones run by Christians.
Thank you! No, it's just me.
According to subjectively chosen laws. Objective according to a subjective criteria is just pushing the subjectivity back a level.
Did you ever read about Lady Bathory?
Steve... we were missing you!
That so? I'd love to know the Bible passage that mentions Halloween.

And you are supported because it is with the industrial revolution that the anti-slavery movement begins. Not to mention women no longer need to be subservient. And the men no longer have the excuse of having to escape or relax which is to use any intoxicant. Hence the three great campaigns that mark the early evangelicals which are called the liberal churches now. Because their message really did free humans for the first time. That mixed with a firm embrace of egalitarian ideals acting on the ideals of the enlightenment but now having a real method that worked.
I'm contending that it's silly to expect a child to be perfect. And I'm contending that we need to think about how to deal with that fact.
