Friday, August 15th, 2008

Sunday, August 3rd, 2008

A new report suggests that the number of annual HIV infections in the U.S. has been drastically underestimated...or underreported.

The “Order” Of Things: Let Them Kill…Yes - Let Them Marry…No

Sunday, July 20th, 2008

I'm always amazed at public opinion...especially when it provides some insights into human nature in 21st century America.

More On That Plan For A Theocracy…How About Anarchy?

I don't think the thought is that far fetched...and I'm convinced that the evidence supports the contention that ...

Creationism & Cross Burning: The Painful Path To Theocracy?

Thursday, June 26th, 2008

An Ohio science teacher seems to think that his Christian beliefs grant him the authority to support creationism while undermining the theory of evolution, to disregard the scientific evidence of the age of the earth and the universe, and to brand his students with the image of a cross (see ...

John McCain Revealed: The Unborn, Gay Marriage, & Health Care
