    but on it's own it's F******* tragic is more ways than can be measured .

    I posted a diary a few months ago asking what we would think of the people who believed in a flat earth in their day, and then I found out that there are still people today (beyond hosts of "The View") who believe such in our day.

    Terry Gross is interviewing james Hansen from the EPA right now as I type this, and he's discussing how NPR is the "most liberal media outlet in the country". Um, OK. Guilty. And as such it might just save us all, even the freakin fundies and the neocons.

    This is where church and state must part ways, for the hypocrisy alone is enough to piss God off if he were really there; to say science is bunk but to live beneath the umbrella of all it provides while doing it.

    I bet it makes the Amish really pissed; its a good thing for sure they are pacificists.

      People who think the Sun revolves around the Earth. I'm not sure about flat-Earthers, but Geocentrists are real (the not very numerous yet).

      •  Found it. It's under "fundamentalist" (0+ / 0-)

        who think that the world was created for them.

        I'm always fascinated by those who assail the atheists of the world, of which I am a proud and vigilant one, for we see the world not as a gift from our dad, but an absoultely precious random act.

        There are many miracles; there is only one Earth.

        •  I am saddened that the fundies... you, nutjobs (0+ / 0-)

          ... have so gouged at the gap between theists and atheists, such that the span is becoming too wide to reach across to even shake hands.  This is not a slam on atheists in anyway...  It is an indictment of the unthinking blind faith and divisive rhetoric (and actions) of the evangelical movement.  It has tragically deepened one of the corrosive divides in our society.  A divide that creates one of the "us v. them" scenarios.  

          I am Christian, and I believe that God made this world for us all...  The onus is on me to share this view with others, if I expect anyone to ever agree with me...  Judging others and shoving my beliefs down anyone's throat is certainly not going to achieve that... quite the opposite as a matter of fact

          From where I sit, my faith is about my relationship with God.  It has nothing to do with anyone elses' views.  To quote T.Jefferson, "it neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg if my neighbor professes belief in 20 gods or none at all."  For reasons that I do not understand, evangelicals just can't stand the idea that others don't share their views, and others don't live the way that they believe they should (not that they necessarily practice what they preach, of course).  God help us  ;)

          Merchants [corporatists] have no country. The mere spot they stand on does not constitute so strong an attachment as that from which they draw their gains.
