Give them Greek mythology - then they can compare the powers and temperaments of different fictional gods ...... and however capricious and malevolent Athena, Hera, Zeus et al. could be, they will see that nothing trumps the judeo-christian god for all round unpleasantness!

I am gobsmacked to discover that in 1925 public opinion at this level of fundamentalism was on the side of reason, ridiculing the anti-evolutionists, yet today in 2012 they seem to have a free pass for their "beliefs" and a right to respect (?) as well.

America has successfully devolved in the last century! Congratulations.

PS just thought i'd share this great one-liner from the BBC radio comedy "News Quiz" last night....

"Rick Santorum has announced his withdrawal from the Republican nomination race .... in order to spend more time in the 18th century"

And also "all 4 of the original Republican candidates who stated that God had told them to run, have now withdrawn from the race ..... so God was hedging his bets and still lost to the Mormon"

It's going to be a long year....

I'm amazed that there are any parents left who would put their children in the hands of those who offer catholic education ....

Great job Stephen. It would be interesting to see how many other state-funded universities enforce the woo at graduation ceremonies, or in football or other sports teams.

I'm sure this is just the tip of the iceberg...... So lets melt it!
