“I was very moved by the song that talked about the damage that atheism has caused and is causing. It was very moving…. The songs carry the sense that evil will not prevail, and so the message is that the truth ultimately prevails…. These times will pass because eternal truth will survive atheism and the difficulties of the 20th Century.”
Well atheism will survie your term in office, Congressman. You may be a receiving a complimentary box of tissues from me on election day. Prick.
Intelligent design my ass! – A woman refuses to abort her conjoined twins because of her strict religious (Catholic) beliefs. The twins have 2 heads and 1 body with only a 1 in 5 chance of survival according to some sources, and none at all according to others.
Woman sues “psychic” after having her life ruined because she happens to have the same name as the woman the “psychic” fingered in Caylee Anthony case. – Yeah, it’s really kinda complicated. Just click the link. I wonder if she saw this coming?
The single most pathetic “ghost” video I’ve ever seen – It still amazes me that people actually buy this crap.
Speaking of total crap, the sCAM folks at Natural News have responded to Patrick Swayze’s public rejection of alternative medicine – Shockingly, they’re not happy about it. After all they claim to have the magic, yet still unproven, ability to cure all cancer:
. . .
The mainstream chemo theory is to weaken and destroy the cancer cells with chemical poison which also weakens and destroys the rest of the body’s cells and organs in the often misplaced hope that the symptoms of cancer (tumors and cancer cell masses) will somehow be eliminated before the treatment itself kills the patient. It is a desperate gamble that fails more often than not.
. . .
Fasting can be a key part of beating cancer, but not so much because it starves the cancer cells. Rather, fasting helps the body eliminate toxins and waste and helps it regain proper balance. Contrary to what Swayze has been led to believe, proper nutrition is also very much a key to beating cancer, because it is essential to build and maintain a strong immune system.
Seriously, is it wrong to want to see these guys hit by a very large bus?
Richard Dawkins to release a new book in September – The title is The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution.
Math is cool: Winnie Cooper says so – Every guy I know that’s my age has grown up watching The Wonder Years and has the hugest crush on Danica. It’s so awesome that she’s now getting to use that icon status for good.
AND NOW FOR A MOMENT OF SCIENCE:
‘Reverse Evolution’ Replayed In Real Time – “Scientists have turned back the clock on the evolution in the fruit fly to provide key insights into the basic mechanisms of evolution.
In his book, Wonderful World, Stephen Jay Gould writes about an experiment of ‘replaying life’s tape’, wherein one could go back in time, let the tape of life play again and see if ‘the repetition looks at all like the original’. Evolutionary biology tells us that it wouldn’t look the same – the outcome of evolution is contingent on everything that came before. Now, scientists at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC) in Portugal, New York University and the University of California Irvine, provide the first quantitative genetic evidence of why this is so.” Here that John McCain? FRUIT FLIES!!
Dead Stars Tell Story Of Planet Birth – “Observations made with NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope reveal six dead “white dwarf” stars littered with the remains of shredded asteroids. This might sound pretty bleak, but it turns out the chewed-up asteroids are teaching astronomers about the building materials of planets around other stars.”
