Tea Leaves and Science

Brainless cheating and ignorance powers the religious Right. These emasculated Bible thumpers got their boy elected and now hide behind freedom of religion to force others to support stone age agendas. Integrity lacks in these uneducated Neanderthals. They are trying to gain legitimacy for "intelligent design" to be taught alongside evolution. If inbred voters wish to embarrass themselves, polite society should hope they begin competing for Darwin Awards.

No child left behind.

Have you every notice that the "Right"(is there a differences between the Right, the extreme right or the religious right?) think and act like the old time Communist or modern day ganger "take no prisoner", "the only good enemy is a dead enemy", win at all cost - lie, deceive, cheat and or mislead, the only thing that matters is the end result and that is winning. The problem is you can not negotiate with them, they will break any promise or lie. They do not understand the word compomise, changing opinions and/or postions based on new information or intellectual ideas - IT SHOWS WEAKNESS. YOU MUST STAY THE COURSE

Yes, you are absolutely right. They cannot reason or hold a defensible position when they cannot admit any flaws in their positions. The ultra religious have always used violence to intimidate those who disagree. The next blog will mention a societal view of life.

I think you are correct in your ideas but you may want to skip some of the more hyperbole (uneducated Neanderthals, inbred voters and bible thumpers)- you don't want to become a mirror image of such people like Ann Coultre or the "Pill popping guy". I take it you aim is not to get people who have similar ideas to agree but to have an intellectual exchange of ideas to influence people train if thought - win them over by intellectual discussion and not name calling.

But then again the “Right” does hate any real discussion of ideas -discredit, misdirect, call people names or imply they are weak, wishy washy people who change their positions. How could you trust any person who listened, investigated and then changed their position - THEY ARE WEAK AND UNTRUSTWORTHY!!

Yes, one should refrain from name calling. No disrespect is meant to those who have not been well educated, as they may have sound reasons for not pursuing what is expected in my own family. The people being vilifed are those who would deny education to others. A significant percentage of Bush supporters identify themselves as fundamentalist Christians. Too many of them are happy with what they know and wouldn't read a book either to save their lives or the future of their children. To make a rational decision requires that one consider ideas which may go against his beliefs.

Why would anyone want to send their child to such a school - not mentioning the fact that the couple is gay?

Christian School Expels Girl for Having Gay Parents

Friday, September 23, 2005

ONTARIO, Calif. — A Christian school expelled a 14-year-old student because her parents are lesbians, the school's superintendent said in a letter.
Shay Clark was expelled from Ontario Christian School (search) on Thursday.
"Your family does not meet the policies of admission," Superintendent Leonard Stob wrote to Tina Clark, Shay's biological mother.
The school's policy states that at least one parent cannot engage in practices "immoral or inconsistent with a positive Christian life style such as cohabitating without marriage or in a homosexual relationship," Stob wrote.

Enrollment Requirements
Students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin are admitted and accorded all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities made available to all students at the school.
Upon completion of a written application and a favorable personal interview with the Admissions Committee; students from Christian homes, whose parents are active members of a Christian or Catholic church, are admitted.*
*This requirement has helped us maintain the Christian aspect of our school for over 53 years.

yoga, random day for me. "Tea leaves and Science" Starting to sound more like tea than scienc

"Text of the statement on intelligent design that Dover Area High School administrators are reading to students at the start of biology lessons on evolution:

"The Pennsylvania Academic Standards require students to learn about Darwin's theory of evolution and eventually to take a standardized test of which evolution is a part.

"Because Darwin's theory is a theory, it continues to be tested as new evidence is discovered. The theory is not a fact. Gaps in the theory exist for which there is no evidence. A theory is defined as a well-tested explanation that unifies a broad range of observations.

"Intelligent design is an explanation of the origin of life that differs from Darwin's view. The reference book, Of Pandas and People, is available for students who might be interested in gaining an understanding of what intelligent design actually involves.

"With respect to any theory, students are encouraged to keep an open mind. The school leaves the discussion of the origins of life to individual students and their families. As a standards-driven district, class instruction focuses upon preparing students to achieve proficiency on standards-based assessments."
