Indiana life insurance CEO says deaths are up 40% among people ages 18-64…

“The head of Indianapolis-based insurance company OneAmerica said the death rate is up a stunning 40% from pre-pandemic levels among working-age people. “We are seeing, right now, the highest death rates we have seen in the history of this business — not just at OneAmerica,” the company’s CEO Scott Davison said during an online news conference this week. “The data is consistent across every player in that business.”

OneAmerica is a $100 billion insurance company that has had its headquarters in Indianapolis since 1877. The company has approximately 2,400 employees and sells life insurance, including group life insurance to employers in the state. …

“What we saw just in third quarter, we’re seeing it continue into fourth quarter, is that death rates are up 40% over what they were pre-pandemic,” he said. “Just to give you an idea of how bad that is, a three-sigma or a one-in-200-year catastrophe would be 10% increase over pre-pandemic,” he said. “So 40% is just unheard of.” …

Most of the claims for deaths being filed are not classified as COVID-19 deaths, Davison said. “What the data is showing to us is that the deaths that are being reported as COVID deaths greatly understate the actual death losses among working-age people from the pandemic. It may not all be COVID on their death certificate, but deaths are up just huge, huge numbers.”

Shocking news, and difficult for the clearly out of control and lawless Biden administration to reconcile against their disastrous pro-Covid-vaccine diktats.”


I took a Christian class about atheism. It was worse than I expected…

“Stand to Reason University, a Christian apologetics organization, just released the course “Atheism: Bumping Into Reality,” and I decided to take it. The class instructor, Greg Koukl, taught several misconceptions about atheists like “Atheists believe everything came from nothing,” “atheists can’t explain morality,” and “atheism leads to hopelessness and despair.” He also argued for God’s existence using the Kalam cosmological argument, an argument from morality, and an argument involving the soul.

Commiserate with me as I take on STRU’s claims!”

Yes…we often do expect more out of these efforts when we enter into them…yet end up sorely disappointed, that there is nothing new…no substantive challenge to rise to.

In these kinds of situations…it’s important to be able to recognize when someone is trying to collect other humans, in order to bolster their own assertions. It’s important to realize, that not everyone is at peace with their own claimed position, nor with not knowing what the answer is.

A Gem of Wisdom

“A wise man understands how much he does not know.”

This is so true…and it’s among the reasons why those who try to shoehorn an unsubstantiated answer, while aggressively trying to push other people to accept the same answer, are looked upon as foolish…perhaps even bullies.

Accept that we do not presently have definitive answers, for countless questions…and some questions, we may never be able to answer.

This is okay…For as long as we’ve been around, we’ve lived like this…It’s how things naturally are.

Trump Allies Who Signed Forged Election Docs Admit They Knew It Could Be Illegal…

“According to their own statements, many of the Trump allies that signed onto the forged election documents in states like Michigan fully understood that this move was illegal, but they went ahead with the plot anyway. These people should be arrested for attempting to defraud the election and overturn an election, and there’s little doubt that prosecutions would be very successful given the evidence that has emerged. Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.
