There's no scientific evidence for God. Stop worrying and enjoy life.

For good people to do evil things, it takes religion. (to paraphrase Steven Weinberg)

Dhamma,
Agree, bad title. "The Greatest Show on Earth" was PT Barnum's traveling circus, menagerie, and museum of "freaks" in the 19th century. Still used today by the Ringling Bros., Barnum, & Bailey circus in the USA. Barnum was famous for saying "There's a sucker born every minute."

A better statement is:
"There's no scientific evidence for God. Stop worrying and enjoy life."

'probably' is weak.
Never give the religious nuts a crumb.

Why the outrage? Europeans should be delighted that the Turks are so stupid. Do you really want more Muslims in Europe?

RD and PZ were sucker punched by Stein & Co., just like Tony Blair and the American electorate were duped by George Bush. Perhaps a lesson has been learned.

There is a similarity between Hinn and RD; although, Hinn is certainly crass whereas RD is silky smooth. RD hawks his book whenever he's interviewed or on a book tour--with the intent to keep the profits, as does Hinn. RD intends freeing people from a delusion and making them mentally healthier. Hinn intends on making people both mentally and physically healthier, and probably does so frequently and temporarily because of the placebo effect. I have no doubt that people attending Hinn's revival felt much better afterwards (and maybe quite a bit lighter in the pocketbook too). Same for the people attending RD's book signings.

Now, don't all you athiest fundies out there blow a gasket.

Huckabee has no chance of being nominated as the Republican candidate for president. Romney and his brethren on Wall Street have a near-infinite amount of money to spend on his campaign. Money is the only true God.

fatcitymax's Avatar Jump to comment 4 by fatcitymax

Please forgive me, but as an American it is a guilty relief for me that Canada and GB are also having to cope with the ID and Creationist infection. I am not hopeful that the US constitutional firewall of separation of church and state will survive. I am aquainted with many otherwise seemingly sensible and rational people who are unable to acknowledge the fundamental importance of this division. I believe that the brains of these people are simply wired differently. They cannot associate and project the consequences of religious madness in countries such as Iraq, Iran, and Israel onto our own country. I feel sorry for future generations. We are failing them.
