Yes...when JMac made a statement about the nature of the Son of God that was very, very off and he publicly acknowledged it before the entire world. Let's take a peak at your life and see what we can find. What are you hiding Dennis? Unbelievable. The level of hypocrisy is sick.
The sin of "Dennis Swanson" is a different subject, and not as interesting. There should be a name for this. "Ad hominem" doesn't quite fit. Nor "ad hominem libellum" Nor "ad hominem innuedum"More like "ad hominem conjecturum" But my grammar may be off.
WIKIPEDIA: Baizuo (/ˈbaɪˌdzwɔː/, /baɪˈzwoʊ/; Chinese: 白左; pinyin: báizuǒ, Mandarin pronunciation: [pǎi.tswò], literally White Left) is a Chinese neologism and political epithet used to refer to Western leftist ideologies primarily espoused by white leftists. The term baizuo is related to the term shèngmǔ (圣母, 聖母, literally "Blessed Mother") or shèngmǔbiǎo (圣母婊, 聖母婊, literally "Blessed Mother of Bitch"), a sarcastic reference to those whose political opinions are perceived as being guided by emotions or a hypocritical show of selflessness and empathy.
The term baizuo was apparently coined in a 2010 article published on Renren Network by user Li Shuo, entitled The Fake Morality of the Western White Left and the Chinese Patriotic Scientists (西方白左和中国爱国科学家的伪道德), initially used as a general critique of certain socialist values in the American left. No further use of the term is known until 2013, where on Chinese forum Zhihu through 2013–2015, the term evolved to criticize some people among the left who seemingly advocate for positive slogans like peace and equality to boast their sense of moral superiority, but are ignorant of real-world consequences, and utilize destructive behavior like political sacrifice and identity politics.
Substantial use in Chinese Internet culture began in early 2016, at first at MIT BBS, a bulletin board system used by many Chinese in the U.S., during the 2016 United States presidential election.
A variable-naming style that separates the parts of a name with capitals, as in FirstSecondThird. See also: pothole case, kebab case.
"Combativeness" is a word. So is "combatative".. : Is "combatativeness" an existing word? Should it be? Is it better than "combativeness"?
CHYMPS is the acronym for the top political science PhD programs in the United States. It is the political science PhD equivalent to HYS (Harvard, Yale, Stanford) for law schools and HSW (Harvard, Stanford, Wharton) for business schools. CHYMPS stands for:
The acronym was originally Hypes-Bomb (Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, Berkeley, MIT) as a shorthand for the top political science departments (perhaps pejorative, as in overhyped but famous political science schools).
Hypes-Bomb then morphed to CHYMPS since it’s catchier.
CHYMPS then became the updated HYP as an acronym for the most prestigious schools in the US generally (see Urban Dictionary entry from 2009), though it’s causing some confusion among Columbia, Cornell, Caltech, and University of Chicago fans who feel that “C” should stand for them, not Cal-Berkeley (just a bias against public schools IMO, since Cal is clearly superior to the other “C” schools, at least at the graduate level).
"In selling stock, the filer is not contradictorily asserting it is solvent; the *buyers* are saying that."
"Deificatio hominis" or just "deificatio" is the Latin term used in theology for the idea of a man trying to become more like God. Often people say "deification", which is bad terminology. It already has a main meaning, and that main meaning is completely different, almost opposite, since it is to make something into an idol, treating it as God. The idea here is not to set yourself up falsely as God, but to make yourself slightly more like God and diminish your own contrary will. The Greek term “Theosis”is better, maybe; I don’t grasp the Eastern Orthodox concept very well. “Sanctification” is good. “Divinization” is okay, but sounds too much like “divining”, as in fortune-telling.
A rapid decline or deterioration in a situation.
Doctrine of Double Effect
"The doctrine (or principle) of double effect is often invoked to explain the permissibility of an action that causes a serious harm, such as the death of a human being, as a side effect of promoting some good end. According to the principle of double effect, sometimes it is permissible to cause a harm as a side effect (or “double effect”) of bringing about a good result even though it would not be permissible to cause such a harm as a means to bringing about the same good end." "Doctrine of Double Effect," Stanford dictionary.
"Enantiomers, also known as optical isomers, are two stereoisomers that are related to each other by a reflection: they are mirror images of each other that are non-superposable. Human hands are a macroscopic analog of this." --https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stereoisomerism#:~:text=Enantiomers%2C%20also%20known%20as%20optical,opposite%20configuration%20in%20the%20other.
Googleability or Googlability
A measure of how easy it is to find information about a person on the Web.
Which spelling is better?
The Javert Paradox
The Javert Paradox: Suppose you find a problem with published work. If you just point it out once or twice, the authors of the work are likely to do nothing. But if you really pursue the problem, then you look like a Javert.
καιρός. "a passing instant when an opening appears which must be driven through with force if success is to be achieved."
Short for "Kohen Tzedeq ("priest of justice"/"authentic priest") or Kohen Tzadok (meaning the name-bearer is of patrilineal descent of the Kohanim sons of Zadok)", Wikipedia says.
A variable-naming style that separates the parts of a name with dashes, as in first-second-third. See also: camel case, pothole case.
The lunate epsilon (tex $\epsilon$) is the moon=shaped one that I like to use for something very small because it looks smaller. The "reverse-3 form is the uglier squiggly one that has the advantage of one-stroke cursive writing on the blackboard. See the Wikipedia entry.
A variable-naming style that separates the parts of a name with underscores, as in first_second_third. See also: camel case, kebab case.
A pronunciamiento (Spanish: [pɾonunθjaˈmjento], Portuguese: pronunciamento [pɾunũsiɐˈmẽtu]; "proclamation , announcement or declaration") is a form of military rebellion or coup d'état particularly associated with Spain, Portugal and Latin America, especially in the 19th century.

Ambrose Bierce (1911): "Rarebit n. A Welsh rabbit, in the speech of the humorless, who point out that it is not a rabbit.
