What is truly sad is that sticking kids in cubicles and letting them spend the day watching christian videos is still better than what the public education system can offer.

While the information presented is well worth repeating, the fact that the information is actually repeated is a bit odd. Is it a metaphor?

"Mohammad disagrees."

I mean seriously folks. What's the pointing of poking fun at Christians? It's like shooting fish in barrel after all the water leaks out. Let's put a caption on that will piss almost everyone off, get some serious death threats, maybe some UN sanctions and lots and lots of publicity. Too bad we are all such cowards.

I wonder if this is the real reason why the church is so opposed to abortion. Fewer kids == fewer playmates for the priests.

One assumes that upon hearing that a swimmer was in distress, the rescuers sprang into action and jumped into the water or perhaps used a water craft of some kind ala Bay Watch. Imagine if, instead, they had knelt down in prayer and asked for some invisible sky creature to intervene. I'm guessing the church group would have quickly sued for wrongful death of the child.

Yet more evidence of a divine creator. Obviously, left handed amino acids would have produced left handed organisms. The fact that people are uniquely and predominately right handed could only be the result of God's direct intervention.

The results were the same even after the researchers controlled for factors like age and racial differences.

So how exactly does one control for racial differences in a test like this? Do they grade on a curve? If so I wonder what the curve looks like.
