Go to: Fact Impact

Actually this seems to be good news. Instead of being situated in some separate non-approachable sector, belief and fact are processed in the same areas and in similar fashion.

It means that, for some believers at least, their beliefs are amenable to change through new information.

Go to: Onward Christian Soldiers: The Health Care Wars & the Religious Right

I am a militant atheist, and neither a Republican nor a conservative.

I am however opposed to Obamacare for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that under the enumerated powers of Article One of our Constitution there is no authority for a national healthcare scheme. None.

And I must say as an aside, the folks who feel the need to denigrate those with whom they do no agree with the race card or worse are unfit to partake in an important national debate such as this.

Another example of Christian whining.

I thought the blasphemy laws had been repealed?

At any rate, why not just charge him with trespassing?
