Can you imagine having this man as your doctor?

"I'm sorry, you seem to be afflicted with a cancerous tumor from the pits of Hell. The only way to get rid of it is to pray to your savior and ask him to do it and hope that he does."

I've got to agree that any person who has been to medical shool and is on the committee of space and science knows better than this and is just pandering to an evangelical crowd. But it's still scary that anybody would even say this to anyone.

Parents have been charged with negligent homicide because they did just that trying to cure their sick kids.

Answer: Yes.

Do you dispute this? Or are you a fan of Hank 'Guam gonna tip over' Johnson?

Good point. There are idiots in both parties.

True, although it seems to me there are differences.

On one side, the idiots are more organized and cohesive. On the other side, the idiots sort of operate at random.

It's shocking to me that there are still people that say things like this given all we know about the universe now. Quantum mechanics, theory of relativity, multiverse theory, etc. It's sad that some people still look at knowledge as a threat. Honestly, I think if people took a while and studied up on the workings of the universe as well as life here on Earth, it would only deepen their appreciation for God.

For example, did you know that black holes are naturally occurring time machines? That if you were to travel at 99.9% the speed of light for a week, you would only be a week older but over 100 years would have passed by on Earth? Crazy things happen in the universe that we can only begin to wrap our heads around.

I don't understand how a big bang and evolution would disprove the existence of a God. I can see how it would threaten a church because they've been preaching otherwise for centuries but churches are run by imperfect men who like to make their followers feel special.

I'm glad that Representative Broun had the courage to speak the truth.

This came up during the TSPLOST debate. The former Cobb Commission chairman said he was concerned that putting in multi-use trails in Cobb County was furthering an international plot undermine our way of life known as Agenda 21.
"Another example: As commission chairman, Byrne was an advocate for constructing four-foot wide sidewalks along county roads for use by pedestrians and joggers.

The county is now constructing an eight-foot wide multi-use trail along Dallas Highway in west Cobb. “That’s Agenda 21,” Byrne said. “Bicycles and pedestrian traffic as an alternative form of transportation to the automobile.”
Now, the problem is being tackled at the state level. Later this week legislators will be attending a 4 hour seminar at the state capitol on how to root out the hidden socialist agenda in nice-sounding terms like "smart growth," "sustainable development", and "Public Private Partnerships," as well as in organizations like the ARC, Tax Allocation Districts and CIDs.

Quote:
Republican members of the state Senate have received an invitation from Majority Leader Chip Rogers of Woodstock to attend a four-hour, Oct. 11 seminar at the state Capitol on Agenda 21 – what some conservatives believe to be a United Nations-driven conspiracy to erase American property rights.

Zoning as a socialist plot, in other words.
