Alarming Study! May. 23rd, 2007 @ 01:24 pm
38 Percent of People Not Actually Entitled to Their Opinion.

"On topics from evolution to the environment to gay marriage to immigration reform, we found that many of the opinions expressed were so off-base and ill-informed that they actually hurt society by being voiced."

I figured this was up our alley :)

And my god, banana as phallic symbol much?

God gave us bananas, and then put them far away from Christian centers to prove how much he loved his people.

Oh, and The banana is mentioned for the first time in history in buddhist texts 600 years BC. A little banana history.

Hello, all. Lovely forum you've got here.

Honestly, little would make me happier than being able to decide whether I'm a part of your 12 percent, or among the 88.

But, in order for me to make my decision as to whether god played a role in human evolution, I'm going to need a definition of the word "god".

Keep in mind I've not been a christian for longer than an hour, before I realized the magic wasn't working, and I'll never join the ranks of a religious group for any reason other than research.

But I am no atheist or materialist, either, feeling that an over-emphasis on the tangible is preventing the countless splintered fractions of science from arriving at a unified theory.

I feel that both extremes have flaws, and that a moderate path promises to yield the most accurate ideas.

So, any takers? Are we going to settle on a definition of god?

How about "omnipotent, omniscient, omnibenevolent" for starters? Doesn't that sum up the Judeo-christio-islamo ideology?

That seems like a good place to start.

Thank you very much.

  A new specimen suggests that snakes evolved on land, rather than in a marine environment. It's the first snake ever found that still has a primitive pelvic structure.

  I'm tempted to call it "Snakes On a Plain."
