Go to: Creationist Britain (would you Adam and Eve it?)

"Wes explains that the problem with evolutionism is it denies the essential Christian belief that we are made in God's image."

Of course! This is my favorite one! Because we are made in the image of a god, therefore we are god like ourselves. And anyone who tries to tell us we are not god like creatures MUST be wrong!

That does not sound arrogant at all!

Go to: Science lessons should tackle creationism and intelligent design

Last night on Charlie Rose there were two former Treasury Secretaries talking about economic issues. The one was saying how we in the US have great opportunity based on our ability to change and innovate. He said that the next great revolutions like that of the internet are going to be in the life sciences, but that unfortunatly we are also the country that is debating whether evolution might be true or not. Goes to show that striving to be a backward religiously motivated country will have far reaching effects.

Go to: Atheists: The Last Political Outcasts

Obama giving his approval for continued faith based funding is obvious politically. The whole faith based initiative was founded under Bush, and it funnels millions of dollars (our dollars) directly to the church. When you are in a country where the largest and most organized voting blocks are based on religious affiliation, you cannot go out and say "Remember that massive flow of free money? Yeah that's gone of you elect me."

At this point you just have to hope that Obama gets elected, wins a second term, and then is able to phase out faith funding before he leaves office.

Its a tough call. Admit that you don't believe in magic and you lose the election. As much as I hate it there is the reality, at least at this time, that if you want the Democratic party to be totally secular than you are basically saying that you do not want to see any Democrats elected. The people to be mad at are the vast number of Americans who vote for Jesus, and not the politicians who have to conform to the will of the voters to get elected. I just hope that Obama wins and that once in office he proves to be a more level headed and secular person than they are portraying him as.
