The Decline of Religion in America According to the Blaze

Ten Astounding Cases of Modern Evolution and Adaptation

Atheism on the upswing in America “The science-based evidence leaves no doubt that, although very human in its flaws, democratic atheism is proving superior to faith-based mythical doctrines in practical societal and moral terms.”

Evolution, as helping hand

Ridiculous Religious Rationalization of the Day “NASA’s scientists have discovered that as the planets mature inside their dusty cocoon they suck up all the dust between them and the sun so that the planets slowly emerge from darkness into the light as described in Genesis verse 3. “Let light come to be.” Then there came to be light.”

~Lets not forget that light was created on the first day and the source of light on the fourth day.  Apparently the light from stars several light years away was created in-route to Earth.

Nasa's Kepler telescope finds planet orbiting two suns “It may resemble the planet Tatooine from the film Star Wars, but scientists say Luke Skywalker, or anyone at all, is unlikely to be living there.”

Religious Right Freaks Out Over DADT Repeal TheFamily Reasearch Council worked themselves into the expected lather over DADT.

“...there will be no press releases from the new victims of sexual harassment or assault, the soldiers exposed to HIV-tainted blood, the thousands of servicemembers who choose not to reenlist rather than forfeit their freedom of speech and religion...”

You see, if the military looses the ability to fire homosexuals for being openly, well...homosexual.  Then the gays will start sexually abusing the other 98% of the military like sex-crazed, amoral predators.   The FRC outlined this threat in 2010 when they predicted that gays will start fellating straight soldiers in their sleep.

Once Strongly Opposed To DADT Repeal, Marines Now Try To Prove They’re Best At Recruiting Gays  I think we in the private sector occasionally forget that the marines, unlike congress or the senate are not a bunch of old, white guys.
