        This show is awesome, wrapped in supercool and smothered in bitchin. The only way it could be cooler is if he was riding a unicorn or something.

          well, considering BOTH "believe" in a Christian God, it would be poking fun at both...

          I believe this is meant to poke fun at Christian Republicans...

          Which is funny in my mind.. no one pokes fun at Jews, Muslims, Hindu, etc for believing in a God(s)...

          I don't know... it's starting to look like I'm going to really have to use that ignore function o.com gives us...

            Don't you think it makes for some of the most interesting threads?? It'd be awfully boring if everyone agreed all the time.

              It's conveying the idea of the problems associated with legislating matters of religious belief.

                Separation of church and state.

                Ok.. I believe in letting people believe what they want to believe. I hope and pray there is a higher being and there is life after death. But I believe in factual evidence above all else. I have discussed evolution with the most fanatic of religious folk and have backed them all the way up until the eyeball of the Human being. That is the only organ that has yet to be explained by evolution. So they got 99.5% of the body right.

                I know posting this might make a few heads spontaneously combust but here it goes:

                "Man once surrendering his reason, has no remaining guard against absurdities the most monstrous, and like a ship without rudder, is the sport of every wind. With such persons, gullibility, which they call faith, takes the helm from the hand of reason, and the mind becomes a wreck."

                  I'd suggest people take more time to interpret the OP, rather than shoot opinions from the hip.

                    Interesting. So, to paraphrase your post; you're saying that the eyeball is the one organ that can't be explained through the process of evolution? Did it evolve and change, or was it the same eyeball? Is that right?

                      Sadly there are enough holes in both arguments to have "fun" with. The interesting thing about science is, it does require faith. A theory is put forth based on evidence observed, partial facts gathered, etc. However, it's called a theory because there's not enough evidence to make it fact. So we believe a theory to be true until proven or disproven. One should'nt be criticized for having faith, after all, Columbus* had faith the world was round and everything worked out alright for him.

                              Reminds me of one of my favorite 'Onion' articles,

                              Evangelical Scientists Refute Gravity With New 'Intelligent Falling' Theory LINK

                              After all, it is only a theory, right?

                              So we believe a theory to be true until proven or disproven. One should'nt be criticized for having faith, after all, Columbus* had faith the world was round and everything worked out alright for him.
                              I don't think Columbus had any doubt that the earth was 'round' (actually spherical). This fact, based on scientific evidence, had already been established. It wasn't a blind leap into a dark chasm. The purpose of his voyages was to find a westward route to India, around the spherical world.
