Natural Selection is taught as a theory, with the other sha-bang. But I don't understand why theories are taught in basic biology where everything else is factual. It seems a bit out of place and just to spite religion. Take skeletal, nervous, reproductive systems, etc.., compare these well known studies to evolution. Sure, people should study it and have a grand time, but it should be deeper philosophy, not combattant against the basic student's religion.
A glorious sign from the past; an unlimited speed limit!
All of science is theory. All of religion is faith. Each has it's place. Take your ecclesiastical tax exemption, return to the sanctuary of your belief and be happy!
Actually, we know quite well about the functions of each system of the human body today. That amount of science is very factual. Again, evolution is just one of those bad parts of science that we know nothing about. So it should be left to the people who want to take a higher speculative class.
And that's exactly what belief is. A sanctuary, to enjoy your ego and think your better than everyone.
Believer: "Yee haaaaawww, I'm goin' da heaven, and you all's goin' to hell."
Rationalist: Whatever. Firstly, it is quite a stretch to say God exists, and if he does, I doubt he would accept the likes of you. Just look at yourself.
That reminded me of some other ones.
Remember when you were riding in that old station waggon with your dad on the way to the lumber store, and you identified cirrus clouds in the sky having just learned what they were in school?
You hear the final score of the Twins - Indians game: Indians 2 Twins 1. Carew got the only hit for the Twins. You think about when your dad showed you how to bunt. If your grandfather were still alive, he'd say, you'd be in the batting cages everyday.
You pass some kids wearing jeans and long hair, and he mutters something about hippies. Mark up the street, who had just turned 18, was worried about getting drafted. He'd just gotten a high number, and he was very happy. You "help" load the 2X4's into the back of the station waggon, Then it's over the bridge to the liquor store.
Great memories, EP.
A trip back to twenty years ago:
You hear the final score of the Twins - Indians game: Indians 2 Twins 1. Just remember, some people are twins fans; others are indians fans. whatever. Carew got the only hit for the Twins. You think about when your dad showed you how to bunt. If your grandfather were still alive, he'd say, you'd be in the batting cages everyday.
You pass some kids wearing jeans and long hair, and he mutters something about hippies. Just hating hippies, are we? Mark up the street, who had just turned 18, was worried about getting drafted. He'd just gotten a high number, and he was very happy. Not all are as lucky as he was. You "help" load the 2X4's into the back of the station waggon, Then it's over the bridge to the liquor store.
He was just a kid back then .
Raeganomics worked beautifully for our economy, before we started electing idiots.
Reaganomics apeared to "work" because Dutch, the Republicans and the yellow dogs tripled the national debt. We're living with the consequences of Reaganomics today. Our jobs are leaving by tens of millions because the multinatonals that run our government can make more money by exploiting cheap labor overseas. The economics fostered by the deregulatory climate endorsed by conservatives led to the existence of exotic financial instruments like mortgage default swaps which led to the current economic contraction we're suffering through - worldwide and the worst in 80 years!
The reaction to reaganomics was what fucked up the delicate system of economic freedom. Socialist-liberals got scared and panicked.
Dating tips for the single girl:
You dropped the f-bomb, so you must know what you're talking about. When have "socialist - liberals" been in a position to do anything since Reagan's presidency? By comparison, the fiscally conservatve party that is supposed to know about economics had both houses of congress and the executive branch for six years, and what did we get? Tax cuts for the 1% while we were financing two wars with money borrowed from China, a nation that plays games with it's currency so it can dump products here! We got a massive prescription drug benefit for seniors that was designed to be a give away to pharmacutical companies. They wrote the legislation! I've given you specific facts. If you must respond, please do the same. Try to avoid the salty language; no one will take you seriously.
