I do wonder if maybe there were various life generators rather than a single case of panspermia/primordial soup/etc... going on at the same time. Unlikely, to be sure, but fun to think on nonetheless.

Go to: Pastor Urges His Flock to Bring Guns to Church

happyfinesad's Avatar Jump to comment 32 by happyfinesad

These are things that struck me as unbelievable even in the short preview:

1) "he is inviting his congregation of 150 and others to wear or carry their firearms into the sanctuary to “celebrate our rights as Americans!”"

WHAT. THE. FUCK. Yeah, just bring your guns everywhere, fellas.

2) “God and guns were part of the foundation of this country,”

WRONG. Learn a little something about the foundation of this nation, then you can actually make INFORMED decisions instead of just stating your OPINION and thinking it's factual.

3) "The bring-your-gun-to-church day, which will include a $1 raffle of a handgun, firearms safety lessons and a picnic, is another sign that the gun culture in the United States is thriving"

This actually worries me quite a bit. $1 raffles for a handgun? Excuse me, but fuck you.

4) "One worry was that a Democratic president and Congress would reinstitute the assault-weapons ban, which expired in 2004. "

This is arguably the most worrying statement in the entire article. You're actually WORRIED that assult rifles will be banned again, as they should be? It's bad enough that these people can get their hands on pistols, now they want M-16s and Mack-10s? What's next, grandma driving down the street in a Panzer? You may say that's a slippery slope, but I'm just using the trend as a point of reference.

Go to: Waking up in America

Great read. Also, in my experience, his comment about people being very religious in the military is very true. I went to visit someone at Parris Island Marine Training Camp and all I saw around me were things that attributed god to success in one fashion or another. I even overheard this conversation:

"Whenever training would get too hard for me, and I didn't think I was going to make it, I just prayed to god and trusted that he was there to help me."

That made me really upset to think that someone pushed through something very difficult and mentally and physically taxing and came out the other end a stronger person only to completely belittle their own abilities by giving the credit to "god."

Comment #379631 by Thurston:

"A Catholic priest calls atheism 'the greatest of evils'. Worse than peodophilia or fascism even?"

Of course. Didn't you know that atheism is the gateway to all of those things? Or wait... No. No it isn't.

That's awesome. I wonder if Sir Newton was that brisk in reality.
