  • Are you sure that site is for real? It smells a little hoaxy to me, sort of like Landover Baptist [landoverbaptist.org]. In fact, considering the prominence of the denouncement of Landover Baptist on the front page [truepath.com], I wouldn't be surprised to find that they were working together.

    Of course, fundamentalist Christianity and political correctness are two things that are hard to parody, since anything outrageous you come up with is probably taken seriously by somebody somewhere. I'm sure there are people who use "vertically chall
    • Interesting site (landover). It's interesting how in my readings of the Bible I've never noticed any of the bizarre inaccuracies they try to parody. It probably has something to do with seeing things in context.

      Sorry, Pudge; I'm throwing gasoline on a fire. Hopefully I won't burn the site down. At least we're all here in journals where it's safe and maybe nobody will see us.

      That just makes it audience participation time!

  • Thanks for that one Nat, it's reassuring to see that some places are still worse than France at this point...

  • Furthermore, the Darwin OS is released under an "Open Source" license, which is just another name for Communism.

    As a free software advocate and a laissez-faire capitalism advocate, I'm incensed! :)

  • That's right, new Macs are based on Darwinism!

    You know, I remember using my old Black and White Mac Plus for a Junior High project on evolution. When our biology class started our unit on evolution, our teacher commented that while our book taught evolution as a fact, in our class it would be treated as a theory. For better or for worse, though, that was the six weeks the teacher decided to take it easy^W^W^Whave students make presentations on the material from the book, I guess so we could learn a li

  • being an atheist is a bad thing when 1 in 6 people on the planet are atheist/nontheist.

    • [they say that like] being an atheist is a bad thing when 1 in 6 people on the planet are atheist/nontheist.

      I'm wary of numbers either way; it's always a matter of swinging the "undecideds" anyway -- i.e., getting people who couldn't explain an idea to save their lives, to claim to support it when they're polled.

      And speaking of polls:

      «In an entertaining article last year in the New York Times magazine, Natalie Angier recorded how lonely it was to admit to being an atheist in the US, where 86% of

      • I don't think there's any rule that says you can't be both an Atheist and a card carryin' christian at the same time why, look at Billy Graham or the Catholic Church. The church is like a country club honey, you don't actually have to believe anything but you do have to go and 'be seen' on holy days and at weekly mass.

        And I'd like to know who did that poll as 92% happy to vote for a woman? Remember Ferraro? Jarkko asked me during the 2000 elections which would be more likely, a) a black man or b) white wo

  • Gnat, do you think they are friends of mine because it is "Christian," because they don't like Mac OS X, or because of Jesux? :-)
