Europeans are in the habit of making fun of American evangelicals as backward religious knuckle-draggers who believe that Adam and Eve actually ate apples with a talking snake. But for all this condescension..

Condescension, eh? Well, what do they believe then, Shmulester? There's really no reason to read anymore of your tenuous, insubstantial statements until this particular slippery gem is scrubbed clean. If they do not believe there actually was a First Couple who actually got tossed from the actual most neato garden ever, and Europeans are oh so smugly mistaken with their horribly inappropriate condescension, then why do evangelicals proudly and purposefully misrepresent genetic research that traced back to one "Mitochondrial Eve" as finding the biblical Eve? Hmmmm?

And, if the point of contention is not that Europeans are wrong about what evangelicals believe (i.e.: we can all happily agree they do consider the Adam and Eve fairy tale to be historical fact), but rather the alleged condescension arises from characterizing people who hold such childish beliefs as knuckle-draggers, well, that's just too damn bad, isn't it? Snakes talk in Harry Potter books, not real life, and you're a backward knuckle-dragger AT BEST if you think otherwise. And you should thank Europeans for letting you down gently with such a forgiving description.

The fact that we pointlessly ruin the lives of nonviolent drug users by incarcerating them, at enormous expense, constitutes one of the great moral failures of our time.

Man, are some people in law enforcement and government gonna have to find positive, productive jobs rather than parasitic, self-serving ones, should this bit of sane wisdom alter paranoid law, or what?

Comment 14 by ShesTheBeth :

The only idea that I got a basic drift about, was that he seems to want to join religions together from all over the world to make some sort of one big religion to counter its decline, particularly Christianity in the west.

Someone beat him to it. It's called Unitarian Universalism, and it only has one major flaw: twenty or more wrongs don't make a right.

Comment 34 by Richard Dawkins :

My direct ancestor, General Sir Henry Clinton, played a leading part in the events celebrated on the Fourth of July.

Throughout his generalship, Clinton remained dissatisfied with denied requests for supplies from the English government, and tried to resign twice.

Seems he experienced a similar war after the Battle of New York to the one Washington experienced before.

Should they find saline as well, Hugh Hefner has promised to fund NASA, ESA, JAXA, RFSA, CNSA, ISRO, the ESO, as well as R&D for a strip bar on Gliese 581d.
