2023.03.31 23:19 Old_Heart_7780 The Fourth Amendment protects you and me. It protected Richard Allen until someone turned states evidence.

What Does the Fourth Amendment Mean?
Whether a particular type of search is considered reasonable in the eyes of the law, is determined by balancing two important interests. On one side of the scale is the intrusion on an individual's Fourth Amendment rights. On the other side of the scale are legitimate government interests, such as public safety.
The extent to which an individual is protected by the Fourth Amendment depends, in part, on the location of the search or seizure. Minnesota v. Carter, 525 U.S. 83 (1998).
Searches and seizures inside a home without a warrant are presumptively unreasonable. Payton v. New York, 445 U.S. 573 (1980).
However, there are some exceptions. A warrantless search may be lawful:
If an officer is given consent to search; Davis v. United States, 328 U.S. 582 (1946) If the search is incident to a lawful arrest; United States v. Robinson, 414 U.S. 218 (1973) If there is probable cause to search and exigent circumstances; Payton v. New York, 445 U.S. 573 (1980) If the items are in plain view; Maryland v. Macon, 472 U.S. 463 (1985).
Wikipedia (“the poor man’s dictionary” Admiral Sentence lolol)
“The Fourth Amendment (Amendment IV) to the United States Constitution is part of the Bill of Rights. It prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures. In addition, it sets requirements for issuing warrants: warrants must be issued by a judge or magistrate, justified by probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and must particularly describe the place to be searched and the persons or things to be seized.”
Richard Allen is an American citizen. That’s a fact. Richard Allen, regardless of what anyone thinks, is protected by the 4th Amendment. The Indiana State Police and the FBI and and the Carroll County Sheriff Department knew about Richard Allen from the time he said he was on the bridge that day at that time wearing what he was wearing. We know from a locally published news story quoting the lead ISP investigator in the Delphi murders of Abby and Libby, that the investigation had a “team of detectives constantly circling back” so as not to overlook an important clue. Don’t believe me— Google ISP Sargent Jerry Holeman. It’s a fairytale that Allen was overlooked.
Google: ISP Sargent Jerry Holeman 6 month anniversary interview on Delphi murders.
It’s there in all sorts of interviews and local stories from the 6 month anniversary date of the murders of Abby and Libby.
Richard Allen was always a suspect. Nobody saw Richard Allen do what he now stands accused of doing. Even though he was a suspect on law enforcements radar they did not have that all important probable cause to search his house.
That didn’t come until a certain individual tied to Delphi through multiple searches on his home, including a backyard search of his granny’s house— led investigators to a pile of ashes behind Richard Allen’s backyard shed. Don’t believe me— you can read about all of these searches on this Delphi sub— backed up by local news media confirmation.
It took an informant— somebody connected to the murders— to get to Richard Allen. How could anyone know that? Simply look where that informant had the ISP searching a muddy River next to a bridge less than two miles from his home.
You don’t think they found something important in that River? I say look at where ISP investigators went after muddy River search ended. They went right to granny’s backyard burn pit. Trust me it took finding that murder weapon to get a search warrant probable cause affidavit signed by a judge to search through that old ladies trash dump. Junior knows his dad burned bloody evidence in that trash dump. That’s why investigators were looking there.
Where did ISP investigators go right after sifting ashes and unburned orange peels for a week behind granny’s house. They went directly to that guys house that nobody ever heard of but the FBI, The ISP, The Carroll County Sherriff’s office and the Carroll County prosecutors office. They all knew about Richard Allen— the fact that they found a weapon in a River and burned evidence they were looking for in granny’s trash dump— allowed investigators to get that judge to sign a search warrant PCA to get into Richard Allen’s backyard ash pile hidden close to the back of that shed. We even have an account from a neighbor reported in the local media— investigators were there before sun up with flashlights sifting through ashes. You couldn’t make this shit up. They were there early that October 13, 2022 predawn morning looking for the same evidence they were just looking for at granny’s house on Paw Paw Pike in beautiful Peru, Indiana some 40 miles away.
From that backyard pile of ashes investigators sifted enough evidence to go back to that judge and get a warrant to get inside Richard Allen’s house. We know this because there are witness accounts reported by the local news that there was a lull in the search as searchers and the Allen’s were all outside— before the searchers moved inside the house. Obviously waiting on the more intrusive search warrant to arrive back from that judges signature. They found the .40 SiG Sauer P226 and the rest is history.
The crybaby Allen says he didn’t do it. Where have we all heard that before??
I have my suspicions. I won’t use the maggots name but you may or may not know who that is. He’s the same guy a lot of people think killed Abby and Libby. He’s the guy that beat up that little boy on a toilet bowl. He stalked that 11 year old girl with his truck and scared her to so bad her mother had to get a restraining order pulled on his POS ass. Not the guy you want living in your neighborhood. The Good Old Boy syndrome in rural Central Indiana allowed him to roam freed after only 10 days in jail for cracking that 8 year old boys skull.
I’ll leave it at that..
We shall see

2023.03.30 22:56 arch_202 2023-03-30 - Stream Summary Thread

This is a automatic summary bot in beta.
I have always liked the idea of having a summary of each stream, since i'm not always able to watch the whole stream and the VODs are a committment to watch in entirity.
I've updated the script to summarize broad points over a greater period of time. Some of the first summaries were generated from a very short window of the stream, so the summaries were hyperspecific but handicapped by a lack of context. Hopefully this is better. The bullet point format is somthing i'm working on, the LLM jumps around a lot in the formatting.
Disclaimer: these summaries may be incomplete, or in some cases incorrect. Use your best judgement if you think something sounds off. With limiting computing power, It's cost prohibitive to run the entire transcript through an LLM. I'm looking at alternatives, but right now I think this gives a decent idea of the 'flavor' of the topics covered for each time period. I'm finding it useful to go back and listen to specific sections of the stream based on the themes of each summary, I reccomend using it like that.
I'll update this post with periodic summaries of topics covered.

2023.03.29 16:48 BlueTwinFlame “You don’t look autistic”

It’s a very ableist and very rejected phrase… but have we ever stopped to question why it exists in the first place?
Other than Rett Syndrome, a type of autism in girls that often involves facial deformities, have there been any studies done to see any sort of similar facial features in a group of autistics?
If so many people around the world are saying the same thing, that means they all have an idea of an autistic “look” in their minds. Does anyone have any interesting studies or opinions about what exactly the autistic ‘look’ they’re thinking about is? And where it came from?

2023.03.29 13:47 agrippinus_17 "How did we decide what year it is?" The AskHistorians podcast and the origins of the Christian Era

I have now been browsing the AskHistorians subreddit for quite a while. Earlier in the year, I noticed an uptick in questions about the origins of the AD dating systems and about western chronology in general, with several answers redirecting queries to the subreddit’s FAQ. Out of curiosity and since this is stuff that I have studied and I should know (no matter what my impostor syndrome tells me), I checked the relevant section of the FAQ (
Sitting at the top of the list of answered question, there is the sixth episode of the AskHistorians podcast, titled “How did we decide what year it is?”. It was hosted by Algenon_Asimov and it dates back all the way to March 18th, 2014. The host attempts to answer the titular question and while at it, he goes into a bit of an exploration of various alternative dating systems. However, the focus of the podcast is on the origins of the Christian era, that is to say, the Anno Domini system counting the years from the supposed birth of Jesus Christ, with special attention given to the figure of the sixth-century monk Dionysius, who is often credited with coming up with it. The podcast concludes with a recap of the reception of his work by later chronologists.
I have a lot of issues with the contents of this podcast, which is surprising, because the majority of the answers in that FAQ are in fact quite solid and well-researched, including one written by the same user who hosted the podcast. While it’s not especially terrible, it is really not up to the usual standard of the subreddit. With this post I want to explain why. There are a few minor quibbles and one big problem. I will discuss them in due order, reporting the relevant timestamps, but I want to dedicate more space to the one major piece of bad history found in the podcast.
Starting at the 3.45-minute mark and ending at the 8.30 mark there is a list of various dating systems from the ancient world. These are: the Roman consular lists, the Ab Urbe Condita reckoning, the Seleucid era, the Anno Mundi, the Chinese regnal years era, the Olympiads and the Mayan calendar. I do not have much to say about this section, as most of the information reported is, as far as I know, correct. I take issue with the host’s pronunciation of “Ab Urbe Condita” (4.55): that’s a long I so the stress should fall on the antepenultimate syllable (CONdita and not conDIta). Moreover, you could argue that, while the last eponymous consul was indeed appointed under Justinian (4.30), the emperor did not abolish the consular position altogether, it just became one of the accessories of the imperial title, with the dating function being taken over by reference to the regnal years.
At the 8.40-minute mark we meet our protagonist: Dionysius the Scythian abbas. I am not going to call him Exiguus and nor I have any intention to translate his name to Dennis the Little. Please be aware that this is more of pet peeve of mine than substantial criticism, as I will explain in a short while.
First, a bit of context: what little we know about Dionysius comes from two main sources: his own works and what his contemporary and admirer Cassiodorus wrote about him. Cassiodorus (Institutiones, 1, 23.2-4) told us that Dionysius was born a Scythian, and that he was a bilingual scholar learned in both Latin and Greek, and a humble and devout monk who had moved to Rome sometimes in the early 500s. He was likely already dead by the time Cassiodorus was writing (the 550s). Cassiodorus called him an abbas, a title of respect for an ascetic clergyman, though this does not necessarily mean that Dionysius had any organizational or leadership responsibilities in his community. Of Dionysius’s own work, quite a lot has survived. Most of it consists of translations of Greek texts into Latin, the most significant being that of canons of the ecclesiastical councils and of papal decretals from the fourth and fifth century. Even his work on chronology can primarily be described as a translation.
As promised, a little aside about my pet peeve: in the dedicatory prefaces of these works and in his Paschal letters (which are the main reason for his notoriety today) Dionysius seems to adopt the cognomen Exiguus for himself, and the full name Dionysius Exiguus is the one that the scientific community has adopted for him. I can’t do anything about it, but since the study of epistolary conventions is what I wrote my thesis about, I will have everyone who bothers to listen to me know that, in this case, Exiguus is an epistolary formula humilitatis and should not be understood as a cognomen. In letters from Late Antiquity, the hierarchical nature of society and the need to show one’s adherence to the humility demanded by the Christian ethos caused writers to expand their salutations with expressions such as servus (slave) peccator (sinner) infimus (the least). Exiguus (little) only appears in Dionysius’s work in this context: he would have not called himself that in other occasions. His friend Cassiodorus did not address him that way, and Dionysius was certainly not the last to use Exiguus in a prefatory address. At least Alden Mosshammer seems to agree with me on this one (Mosshammer, 2008 p.6).
With this introduction and this little rant out of the way, let us go back to the podcast and into the meat of things. How did the Anno Domini come to be?
Dionysius was working on how to keep track of when Easter fell each year” (8.45).
Yes. The host goes on to explain how Easter is a movable feast, as its date depends on both the solar and lunar calendars.
There were already a few competing methods used to calculate Easter in different parts of Christendom” (9.43).
All of this is essentially correct, though a bit of context is missing. Dionysius was seemingly contacted by the papal curia about the issue of Easter twice. In 525, he was tasked with translating the Alexandrian Easter tables, which he did, and to which he even appended a prefatory letter and a series of (translated) argumenta explaining the inner workings of the 19-year lunisolar cycle around which they revolved. Why did the papal curia need him? Because they were facing a bit of a crisis with the Easter calculations then in use in the Latin church, those that Victorius of Aquitaine had worked out at the time of Pope Leo, in 457. Though Victorius had also based his work on the Alexandrian tables, he had left a few problematic years in which, because of both technical issues and clashing liturgical traditions, he proposed two valid dates for Easter instead of one. The year 526 was one of these occasions, hence why Dionysius had to go back to the Alexandrian sources in 525. He was again questioned about the 19-year cycle the following year, providing his answer in another letter.
Dionysius had no great insights into calculating when Easter would be each year” (9.52)
Not really. We have no reason to think that Dionysius was not a competent computist. Sure, he was not original, but his letter showed that he understood the argumenta that he translated, though not all of them can be attributed to him (Warntjes, 2010).
“He basically just extended the work of some people in the bishopric of Alexandria … However, he did bring one innovation to the process: he came up with a new way of referring to the years” (9.55-10.15)
Yes, Dionysius did extend the Alexandrian table for the 95-years (19×5) period from 532 to 626 and changed the frame of reference for counting the years. As the podcast correctly narrates (10.16-11.00), the Alexandrian tables counted the years according to the so-called Era of the Martyrs which begins with the reign of Diocletianus in 284 AD and Dionysius did not want the last great persecutor of the Christians to be remembered. Having rejected this system, Dionysius decided to count the years from the Incarnation of Christ, which he indicated as 525 years before his time, thus inaugurating the AD system. The host comments:
By the way, Dionysius got it wrong, we now believe that Jesus was probably born about four to seven years earlier than Dionysius calculated … There have always been people who believed that Jesus was born earlier than the year Dionysius picked” (11.36-11.55)
The most recent studies, however, are inclined to question whether Dionysius actually came up with the new system all by himself. After all, he was translating and adapting the Alexandrian tradition for usage by the Latins, not doing original work. Is it not possible that the new system for counting years that he introduced was also something that he found in his Alexandrian sources? This is essentially the thesis of the most comprehensive study of the origins of the Christian Era by Alden A. Mosshammer and of a few competing theories such as that of Daniel P. McCarthy.
In the words of Mosshammer: “The general consensus of authorities earlier than Dionysius is that Jesus was born in the year corresponding to 2 or 3 BC … Most scholars have thought therefore that Dionysius did not follow an established tradition but generated his own date for the Nativity. Either he misinterpreted the evidence or he deliberately distorted it for reasons of his own. Some more recent scholars have thought that Dionysius did accept an already established date” (Mosshammer, 2008 p. 339-40). Mosshammer goes on to argue that the Christian era of Dionysius was a different take on the pre-existing Anno Mundi system adopted by Julius Africanus in the third-century AD. Regardless of whether one finds his arguments convincing (I personally am unsure, I really like McCarthy’s idea of an Eusebian origin for Anno Domini), the immense mole of data and theories that he collected, analysed and argued against, while writing his book leaves little doubt about whether Dionysius was the originator of the base-date of the AD system: he most likely was not, it is just a matter of finding his sources. Leofranc Holford-Strevens wrote illuminating words about Dionysius’s overall attitude towards his “new” dating system: “He does not explain or justify the underlying date, or even claim it for his own discovery but treats it as an unproblematic fact, corresponding to current knowledge or belief” (Blackburn & Holford-Strevens, 1999 p. 778).
So let see what our podcast has to say about the origins of this “new” system. How did Dionysius come up with his date, since the argument here is that it was something he invented by himself? Brace yourself, the real bombshell of bad history is about to hit.
So why did Dionysius pick a year [for Jesus’s birth] that was contradicted by his own Bible? Well, because of something decidedly non-Christian called the Great Year”. (12.15-12.26)
The Great Year? This is… unexpected. Leaving aside the fact that physical copies of what we would now call a Bible were likely not around in Dionysius’s time, where does this Great Year come from? When I first listened to this podcast, I started to think that I must have missed something major while studying this stuff, as I had no idea about the existence of a theory that argued that Dionysius derived his dating system from whatever a Great Year is. This, the host explains (12.26-14.10) is a confusing amalgamation of two separate astronomical facts. One is the theoretical notion, supposedly found in Plato, that there must exist one moment in time in which all the relevant elements of night sky (the visible planets, the moon, the sun, the ”moving” stars) complete their cyclical movement at the same time. The second element is the precession of the equinoxes, that is, movement of the axis around which Earth revolves on itself, which eventually results in the slow but visible shift of the circle of the Zodiac relative to the position of the sun during each equinox. According to the podcast the two notions “somehow got conflated, put together” (14.13). The Great Year is described as that period after which all things in the universe including the precession of the equinoxes, would cycle back to their starting position. At the time of Dionysius there was a belief that such Great Year was a period of 24000 years (14.51-15.10), and it was broken up into twelve ages of 2000 years each, corresponding to the sign of the Zodiac. Here the host goes on a tangent to remind us that the dawning of the Age of Aquarius was a thing among the hippies in the Seventies (15.10-15.41), which should have probably alerted him about the fact that this Great Year has a lot to do with astrological nonsense and little to do with the origins of the Anno Domini system.
Supposedly Dionysius had accurately calculated that there was going to be a conjunction of celestial bodies in what we now call the year 2000. Recognising it as the sign of the end of one of the twelve ages, he established the starting point of his dating system, associated with the birth of Jesus, exactly 2000 years before, so that Jesus would have been born at the beginning of the Age of Pisces and that the planetary conjunction that he had recognised would mark the beginning of the Age of Aquarius (15.41-16.35). He would have sacrificed chronological precision (Dionysius would have known that Jesus was likely born earlier than that), for the sake of his understanding of the Universe as dictated by ancient astrological knowledge. Now, don’t get me wrong, astrological notions such as these were perfectly valid tools of the astronomical sciences in Late Antiquity. It is plausible that someone like Dionysius was familiar with them, but there simply is no evidence to make the claim that they were this pivotal in his reworking of the reckoning of the years, which, it should be remembered was a minor adjunct to the Easter tables and probably not an original one at that.
So even though we call it Anno Domini, or in the year of Our Lord, it’s a mishmash of astronomical and astrological influences”. (16.38)
What to make of this? I had never heard about the Great Year having anything to do with our calendar. When I first listened to the podcast I was not sure, and in fact, I was afraid I had missed out something big while studying this stuff. I went back to my books (list in the bibliography) and found nothing about it. Googling about the Great Year and the Ages of the Zodiac led me to a plethora of websites for astrology nuts, but to nothing that might have been the academic source used by the podcast host. Finally, the Wikipedia page about Astronomical ages (link) provided with one relevant article by one Sepp Rothwangl (actually three articles are referenced, but two are anonymous and yielded nothing upon inspection) that might have been the source of the podcast’s claim about the Great Year. The article is referenced precisely in the section establishing a possible connection between the Astrological Ages and the Anno Domini.
The Wikipedia page had built up my hopes of having found something more substantial than what I heard in the podcast, because it mentions that Dionysius’s alteration of the year-reckoning system was supposed to stave off the End-of-the-World panic associated with year 500 AD. Let me explain why I found this interesting. There is a documented belief among early Christian authors that the Second Coming of Christ should coincide with the end of the sixth millennium of the Age of World. There were several attempts at establishing a general calendar of the world (Anno Mundi) and at placing the birth of Christ in this absolute chronological framework. Two of the most successful Anno Mundi system were that of Julius Africanus, which placed the birth of Christ in AM 5500 (and which is also related to Dionysius’s Anno Domini according to Mosshammer’s theory) and that of Eusebius, which placed the birth of Christ in AM 5200 (Palmer, 2014; Declerq, 2000). According to these systems the End-Times would have begun respectively in AD 500 and in AD 800. Richard Landes has suggested that written records, more specifically chronicles and dating clauses counting down the years leading up to one of these dates shows that Christian intellectuals begun to post-pone the date of the Apocalypse as calculated in these two system, switching first to Eusebius’s count when the year 500 approached and then to the Dionysian date of AD 1000 as soon as the year 800 was upon them (Landes, 1988). This theory has been under revision in recent years, with scholars questioning whether these records were actually indicative of widespread End-Times panic (Palmer, 2014; Warntjes 2018). I was looking forward to finding out if any other evidence had emerged that could help in the debate.
Unfortunately, I could not find the article cited by Wikipedia, but I was able to read another article on the same topic by the same author, Sepp Rothwangl, on his Researchgate page (Link). Alas there really was not much to it, no analysis of Dionysius work, no new connection with Julius Africanus, and the claim about Dionysius finding out about the year 2000 conjunction appears to be backed by no actual evidence. I will not engage with Rothwangl’s article at any length, mostly because I have no way to prove that it was the only source for u/Algenon_Asimov in our podcast. The one clear connection between the podcast and the article is the notion that Dionysius somehow predicted the conjunction in the year 2000. I will only say that, now armed with a name, I went back to Mosshammer’s book. To my surprise Mosshammer did address Sepp Rothwangl’s theory but his words are rather damning, and they reflect the opinion I had already formed by myself: “Rothwangl attributes to Dionysius both an astronomical knowledge and an interest in Millennialism for which there is no direct evidence” (Mosshammer, 2008, p. 355.)
So, if I am correct in detecting Rothwangl as a source, it would appear that, in order to explain the origins of the AD system, the podcast was relying not on mainstream academic works but on a fringe position. Not only that, but the only portion of the theory that does have connection with actual academic debates, the possible connection with millenarist ideas, was completely left out during the host’s explanation. Overall, not a good look for AskHistorians.
Now, onto the final section of the podcast, about which I have only one minor quibble: the host links the upsurge in popularity of the Anno Domini system with Bede’s writing of the Ecclesiastical History of the English People (17.50-19-25). While it is correct to say that his was the first book of history to make consistent use of the Christian Era, Bede’s major contribution to the popularity of the Anno Domini Era was his work on scientific chronology, or computus, specifically the short tract De Tempore and the longer and very well-received De Temporum Ratione. These were widely read during the so-called Carolingian Reinassance and were the decisive factor for having most other computists adopt to the Dionysian reckoning of years. Easter calculations might have been the appanage of “the darkness of monasteries and churches” (17.25), but they had massive influence on Christian society at large. A work of history, no matter how well-written and popular, would never have had the same influence on Christian intellectuals as a massive tract on the reckoning of times.
Now, If I may, a few words about this podcast in particular and AskHistorians in general.
It is all well and good reach out to non-historians and try to explain the whys and whens of past events and how our way to see the world came to be. It should be, in fact, one of the main preoccupations of academic historians, even though they are, in my opinion, more often than not rather neglectful of it. But, when necessary, it must be said that things are more complicated than they look and that questions that to a layman would appear trivial, are in fact nigh-impossible to be answered in full, even by experts, least of all by people, who like myself, try to discuss history on the Internet in their spare time.
“How did we decide what year it is?” is precisely one such question. It seems trivial but it is in fact asking to unravel the entire history of western scientific chronology. And this history has darker periods marked by lack of evidence. The origins of Dionysius are unfortunately still somewhat in the dark. As Philip Nothaft bluntly puts it: “The precise rationale for Dionysius’s equation of the 284th year of the Diocletian era with the year 532 from the incarnation has long puzzled modern scholars and will probably never be explained to everybody’s satisfaction” (Nothaft, 2011). I think that the correct thing to do in a situation in which an answer is still desirable would be to present the topic as still being debated, explain why, and then maybe explain what are the major competing theories about it. I daresay, that I would not have written this post if the podcast had at least mentioned that “the Great Year theory” was one of many about the origins of Anno Domini (though it is fringe and one of the most “out-there”, as far as I understand). Why did Algenon_Asimov decide to present it as the only answer? I cannot speak for him, but I do believe that it has to do with every historian’s reluctance to admit that a certain problem simply cannot be solved and not every question can get an exhaustive answer. It also probably helps that, for various reasons, “Christian thing turns out to have been a Pagan thing all along” is a tried and tested trope of anglophone pop-history. Sitting comfortably on it is a good way to quickly answer questions, but not a good way to explain history to the public. This episode of the AskHistorian podcast should not be on top of the subreddit FAQ about calendars and chronology. It does not give a clear idea of the academic consensus about the origins of the Christian Era and does a disservice to the otherwise excellent work usually found on Askhistorians.

Joseph loves the agricultural life, but he is the second son, and his father’s vineyard will be inherited by his brother Donat, the firstborn. He yearns for a job growing grapes and for an opportunity to marry Teresa Gallego. In Madrid, an assassination plot, conceived against the political leader of Spain by men of wealth and power, creates a storm of intrigue that sucks into its vortex a group of innocent young farm workers in Santa Eulália. How Josep’s life is changed drastically by these events, and how, ironically, they gradually turn him into an inspired vintner with an evolving vision of life, is the fascinating story of "The Winemaker". During the Book Club, enjoy four fantastic Spanish wines to taste. Chef Bryan will create a pairing board of house–made Spanish tapas, cheese and charcuterie to accompany the tasting. Reservations required. Link:
