Hear, hear.

Since we're (more or less) on the subject of war I wanted to clear up one of the arguments used by the x-tians. I was a US Marine for 5 years and in Vietnam for 1.5. I saw quite a bit of combat and I just wanted to say that god was never in most of our fox holes. While I'm at it I may as well make a comment, that war is obscene as are all of these self-righteous &*^%# idiots who start them. Amen

Did anyone else catch Pope Tony in the Guardian? http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/belief/2009/sep/07/religious-communities-nations-development

Blair is so self-righteous, it's shame he won't bother to read the numerous comments - the vast majority of which are... well... have a look for yourself and enjoy!

Of course not. Rich men declare War but, the poor actually fight the war.

100% with you there. Bush picks a fight and Pope Tony goes along like the good little lap dog he was. You can be sure I didn't vote for him.

Note also that neither one of them had family in any of the wars they are responsible for.

"Excellent - it's about time someone from the US recognized the problems she's causing for the rest of us."

Now Marc, there is plenty of blame to go around. Blair went happily along with Bush into Iraq.

Anyone else heard the latest tactic of creation "scientists"? They're currently exposing Darwin as a bad naturalist, saying that his Galapogpos research was flawed! (This of course means that evolution must be wrong.) To me, the libel laws should extend to our scientists to protect them from this sort of outrageous feigned ignominy and downright lies.

Excellent - it's about time someone from the US recognized the problems she's causing for the rest of us. I hold you in high regard as one of the people who can affect change: because every change starts with an idea.

I created one it's waiting for approval. Once approved I'll post URL.

This is the comment wall, Louis. It's almost always off topic!

The three things you mention are three of the worst scourges of our time - and the fourth is a major factor which the US is a major player in. 'W' refused to sign Koyoto - but that's political as well as bloody ignorant. I wonder if Obama will - that's a hotter potato than his health bill! But you're right, we could take this to a debate - anyone care to start it?
