To believe in creationism you have to deny all facts.

1 - Why would you believe a Gallup poll?

2 - Anyone who doesn't believe in a Creator is in full denial of science.

I don't have a problem dealing with both sides of the issue. There is evidence to support to some extent, the theory of evolution. That is a pretty incredible theory, and I see no reason why God didn't incorporate the process of evolution when he created the earth.
God is the creator. How he did it really isn't an issue.

It turns out that the late term abortionist, George Tiller, that was killed recently, also used the induced labor method and post-birth murder to accomplish his evil deeds and the 'regulators' were well aware of it, just as they were in the case recently in Philadelphia. That process is against the law in all 57 states but the law takes a back seat to political correctness.

Political correctness, denial of truth for political reasons, is the inevitable consequence of believing that man, or more specifically, intellectuals, using reason alone can invent a moral system that will replace our Judeo-Christian system that underwrote the greatness of American Exceptionalism.

Virtually every measure of a free, prosperous and civil society have taken dramatic turn for the worse as the liberal/atheist philosophy has gained traction over the past 50 or 100 yrs. Whether measured by broken families, bastard children, violence, education achievement or whatever statistic you might want to list. As some highly respected commentator once observed, 'America is great because America is good and if America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great'. Oh how prescient was that observer.

Hayek titled his last book, 'Fatal Conceit' referring to the inability of man to plan economics affairs but the same logic applies equally to man's inability to plan morality. It is interesting that Hayek was an atheist but late in his life, he conceded that without religion, there is no way to maintain a moral code. And for me, the Judeo-Christian code has a proven track record and we undercut it at our peril.

But don't forget the mantra of the occult ... <span style='font-size: 11pt'>just because that's all true doesn'y prove that any of it's true!</span>

Unless, of course, the regime says it's true.

Ultimately everyone has a religion that includes an omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent existence.

To people of faith, that is the Creator. To the secular, it is the state.

The question must be then, why would anyone put their faith in the state when the state has proven to be a totally failure? Is it a mental disorder or just plain stupidity?

Good question.

To look at it it from a slightly different angle, part of faith is the belief that an omnipotent and omniscient entity knows and sees everything that one does in their entire life.

Respect, or fear, of that keeps honest people honest.

If that is removed, the only thing which can fill it's place in the human psyche is a fear of an omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent state.

In a similar note ... conservatives tend to be more likely to do charitable works because it is the right thing to do and are motivated largely by religious/moral beliefs.

When that becomes absent, people are only willing to do good deeds under the threat of the bayonet of the state at their back.

This is why you see conservatives shake their heads at people who demand the state force people to do what they should do anyway ... and you see the left shaking their collectivist heads at the idea that anyone would do the right thing without the state's coercion.

Exactly why the RW Religious nutjobs, believe as they do, no critical thinking skills. For them, it's a way of life, hence....

"How count forty million people, be so dumb?"

The Theory Of Evolution has survived all other scrutiny, except religious theory, and what proof of their theories, do they have? NONE!

FEAR runs the religious right, hence, critical thinking skills, are thrown out pronto.

It is as much their nemeses, as it is their tool, as well as the tool of fundamentalism, hence, the extreme acquisition of ammo and guns!

THE desire to dictate their religious beliefs, and the decisions of others, is proof of their own insecurity, in their own beliefs.

Frightened little people, aren't they?
