Go to: Obama Wants to Expand Role of Religious Groups

FightingFalcon's Avatar Jump to comment 20 by FightingFalcon


I didn't read that in anyone's response here...


I'm referring to the other article about McCain's TV interview on the Founding Fathers, where posters jumped all over him as a Christian evangelical. It was blatant pandering for votes...

This is the same thing but in this case, I'll be willing to bet that everyone recognizes it as pandering for votes as well.

When McCain panders to the evangelical crowd, it's because he's genuinely seeking a religious take-over of America.

When Obama panders to the evangelical crowd, it's simply because he's looking for votes and doesn't *really* mean it.

I love this place...

Go to: 'I despise Islamism': Ian McEwan faces backlash over press interview

I smell a hate crime brewing! How long before McEwan gets dragged before the UN Human Rights Council?

Go to: Christianity 'could die out within a century'

Buddhism however, proved more attractive than both Islam and Judaism, and was chosen by nine per cent of those questioned.


It seems like Buddhism and other New Age garbage is on the rise in the West. Let's replace one religion with another. Great.

Oil is what you get when you subject dead sea life (plankton and other ocean critters mostly) to intense pressures and millions of years of sedimentation just off the oceanic coasts. However, during the time (the Carboniferous) that the layers we call oil are dated to, there were no Dinosaurs! (That age predates the first Dinosaurs by about 100 million years)


Now wait a second - when I was in 1st grade I was told that fossil fuels came from dead dinosaurs and I'm stickin to that story =)

Really? So no dead dinos? Damn...I liked thinking that my car was powered by a T-rex
