Creationism is a purely Judeo-Christian take on the creation of the universe. It isn't science. It isn't just bad science, it isn't science at all.
Should it be taught in public schools? Not in science class, certainly.
The problem with creationism is that it doesn't merely dispute...
This isn't surprising, really. Silly, but not surprising.
For how many centuries have we seen Christian on Christian violence?
When Peter the Hermit's crusading army entered the city of Semlin (modern day Zemun, in Serbia) in 1096, they killed 4,000 Christians. Then there's the...
Letter to a Red-Stater.
What follows is a letter I wrote to my niece's husband, Jack, who lives in Georgia. He'd accused Obama of socialism (as have some here), and I attempted to refute this at length.
Indiana University, '79.
Let's look at...
The socialism charge is ridiculous. Anyone with half a mind to believe that charge is operating with exactly the right equipment.
Google the transcripts of the speeches that McCain and Palin made at the Republican National Convention. Now cut and paste said speeches to any word processing...
Conservatives often blame "the liberal media" for their failures. It's easy. Blame the press. It makes one wonder how in this recent election Obama has had 24 newspapers...all supporters of Bush in 2004...endorse him over McCain.
Whatever happened to respecting the office, if not...
Not necessarily. He may have just fumbled them. Note further that he (and all the legislators) register their mistake as it happens. It could well be a fumble. Six out of four thousand is a pretty small percentage. 15% is a pretty teensy percentage.
So, nothing, Elder. You claimed she was of majority. I showed she wasn't. She was a teenager living at home, and not the eighteen year old you suggested she was. You didn't do your homework, and now can't 'fess up to it?
The reason I brought up the issue of Levi not wanting the kid is...
Here is the original L.A. Times article that reported the issue of Obama pressing the wrong button:
So on six occasions he either actually hit the wrong button in error, or was looking...
She was seventeen at the time of the announcement September 1, and five months pregnant.
The New York Daily News (reference below) reports that the father, Levi Johnston, didn't want children.
Some minds don't. The term "diehard" will always have its use. But some do...and I think Bob is probably one of them, in spite of his self modifications with Super Glue. Or "gloo," or however it's spelled.
I don't think Powell's endorsement will have any other purpose than to have other...
It was front page news because it was the teenaged daughter of a religiously conservative vice presidential candidate who has herself openly advocated "abstinence only" education in schools--a program found not to work. One would call that "irony."
It also earned attention because the press...
Let's look at the first link's fifth allegation--"Obama wants sex education for kindergartners!"
The video provided fades before Obama can justify his legislation...which called for a program that teaches children skills to help them avoid child molestation...
You think so? Qualify that. Better yet, quantify it.
Obama has campaigned for twenty months. Palin was placed in the race in September.
Since her interviews with Gibson and Couric (both widely acknowledged by the Right as disasters) the McCain campaign has kept her away from reporters...
He already did.
He denounced Farrakhan last February in his debate with Hillary Clinton. This is all very old news:
Look, Farrakhan is trying to curry favor with blacks--the sole population from...
The general tone on the net suggests that McCain did better on this debate than the two previous...yet fell short of the mark and lost. Polls show Obama/Biden now four for four.
In a CBS poll of uncommitted voters 53% surveyed identified Democratic nominee Barack Obama as the winner of the...
A CNN snap poll done after the debate scored it Obama over McCain, 54%-30%. CNN's undecided voters who were polled scored it 59%-37%. When asked who would handle the Wall Street crisis best, Obama won again, 57%-36%.
The poll also showed favorable ratings of Obama up by four percent to 64%...
The Los Angeles Times/Bloomberg poll had registered voters preferring Obama, 49 to 44 percent.
The USA TODAY/Gallup debate poll picked Obama over McCain 46 to 34 percent. When asked which candidate offered the best proposals to solve the country's problems, respondents favored Obama 52...
Here are some interesting sites tracking the polls:
They all have some interesting articles as well. Note that the second two are more in concordance with one...
Here's how it broke down insofar as polling is concerned:
Survey USA had Biden 51%, Palin 32%, and the elusive Undecided at 17%
MediaCurves.com tracked independent voters, showing them favoring Biden 67% to Palin 33%.
AOL had Biden winning 48 to 45
MSNBC had Biden...
An interesting article on John McCain's chief economic advisor. He says McCain will raise taxes:
It isn't particularly sparing of Obama, either.
The question really boils down to WHO will they raise the...
