Most of the views of "liberalism" are fairly "pedestrian" and simple concepts which captivate the imagination of the gullible longing for a simple "explanation" of events which can satisfy the zeal of the uninitiated for an absolute, and
"factual" answer which they can relate to their friends and form a foundation for a set of "beliefs".

The problem is that the set of "beliefs" has failed to withstand even minimal academic inquiry. The liberal mind, while simple, is superior to an imbecile and is will cling and retort the same pre-package sound bytes provided by their handlers, despite the lack of reason and evidence to suppor the initial presumptions. With the new found discovery of "truth", the liberal will rejoice and profess the newfound "truth" that has been implanted via their handlers. The problem is that the "truth" is actually false and those who embrace these "facts" simply lack the intellectual capability to dissect and question the validity of the information dispensed by their handlers. Thus the fertile fields of the "useful idiots" are available for those with actual superior intelligence to embrace and disseminate the marching orders of thier marxist handlers with the firm conviction that they are actually promoting the "will of the people" and are disseminating the "good will" of mankind.

My hope is that the average liberal will actually become more intelligent, realize the fallacious nature of the "information" they have been provided, and actually be able to make rational decisions. I fear that I will be waiting a long, long time.
You done with your rant over nothing?

Ok, troll thread for sure, but cool to think about. I think it was somewhere between 3 - 4.5 billion years ago. I have read that the moon was caused by a planetoid impact on earth which liquidated both and ejected a big glob of magma into near orbit. Voila! The Moon. That was very early in earth's history, when the solar system was a huge shooting gallery and massive impacts kept the surface molten and inhabitable for even bacteria.

Can you condense this down to a paragraph or couple sentences. You can't see the point for all the words that get in the way.

Hawkeye2009 seems not to grasp the proper use of quotation marks or even the most quotidian ideas, for that matter. Typical verbose know-nothing conservative blow-hard. Dallas is replete with them.

Actually, he used them perfectly, both to indicate a quot, and to indicate that something is not take literally, or that the term is used loosely.

Your erroneous "correction" (second usage noted above), is typical of liberal blowhards.

And your failure to realize his incorrect usage, as well as my attempt at humor, is quite usual for a conservative cauldron of shallowness and misinformation.
