Newt is a moral midget pandering to the prejuduces of right wing medievalists.

Why are so many "scientists" connected to the medical profession clueless when it comes to evolution?

This also seems to be the case among various types of engineers.

Could it be that both professions are predisposed to seeing everything as designed? That they have metamorphosed an illusion into a delusion?

The American political landscape is a joke. The theory that America is a democracy or even a republic is a joke. America is a $$$$ocracy and the halfway intelligent ( but totally immoral ) $$$$ guys are pandering to the right wing mediocraties that flock to politics like lemmings. If most of the social conservative religious nut cases are sincere sooner or later the shit is going to hit the fan when the $$$$ guys and the Jeebus guys have a parting of the ways over how far to push the lunacy. Someday, if the present political atmosphere does not become more rational, the U.S. will have it's own version of a French Revolution. It won't be nice and orderly like the "Glorious" one of 1689 in England or the one informed by the noble sentiments of the American Declaration of Independence of 1774. It will be more like what happened in Russia in 1917. One % of the population owns 25-30% of the total wealth of the country now and the middle class is sinking further into underclass status by the day. When a critical mass of the wealth is in the hands of the top few % all hell will break loose. Fortunately I'll be dead by then.

Does the first sentence of this article mean I can't take a picture of a person on the public street from the window of my private house? There is much more to this story than this quick recap and now that someone has opened the can of worms it needs a complete airing to explain EXACTLY what happened. What EXACTLY did the photographer do and what EXACTLY did the woman do? The police video might just help settle the brouhaha.

Why all the back and forth with earache. He's just another instance of "I need god and the threat of punishment to be good and if I can't be good without it the rest of you godless heathens are sure to run amok without some coercion to deter you." Mr earache likes to listen to himself talk. Let him talk all he wants, but for pity's sake don't validate his tortured logic and inane reasoning with a response. His drivel should be allowed to roll down his chin unobstructed. Don't give him a hanky for Jeebus sake.

The level of cogntitive dissonance supported by the human psyche is astounding. It's going to take eons of evolutionary time for reason to overcome fantasy. We'll either have destroyed the species by one form of stupidity or another or just have gone extinct in the normal course of things And of course there's that asteroid out there with our name on it.

Let's stop calling believers stupid and non-believers evil? There is ample evidence to come to the conclusion that many, many ,many, many believers are profoundly stupid when it comes to such questions as the veracity of evolution by natural selection, the age of the universe, the basic facts of American history, etc., etc. There is not one shred of evidence that non-believers are made evil by not believing in some fairy tale god in the sky. Undoubtedly there have been supremely evil atheists, but not one of them ever justified their acts on the basis of their non belief in the figment of someone's imagination.

I for one would rejoice if Texas seceded from the Union. Hopefully South Carolina would follow suit. Then they could resurrect the glorious glorious ( yes I know I said it twice ) institutions they fought so hard to preserve---white supremacy and black slavery. Another benefit would be the increased cultivation of cotton so we wouldn't have to wear so many man made secular fabrics. Let's get back to god's natural fabric. I would also look forward to the establishment of English as the national language in the republic? monarchy? theocracy?of Texas. Maybe the sentiment would pick up some invigorated steam and spill over into the US. After all if English was good enough for Jesus it should be good enough for the rest of us. ( I know this is an old one, but I just couldn't resist ). All this would be just peachy with me, but the best reason for letting Texas go is that their educational system would produce millions of morons and effectively remove them from the labor force leaving much more opportunity for non Texans to thrive economically. The Texans who find themselves unemployable could always sell themselves into slavery and pick all that cottton. After all the history books they use prove that the "peculiar institution" was really a benign patriarchal system that provided untold benefits for the blacks who were fortunate enough to be torn away from their African families to experience the blessings of christian civilization up close and personal.

I was surprised to see Freeman Dyson's name on the list, but I didn't get past # 4 so I don't know what he said. I really don't care. All of this goddidit stuff is becoming nauseatingly boring.
