gawd awmighty

get it---read it--short and sweet and mighty good---i'm over letting religionists of any ilk off the hook anymore---

"The current controversy over "intelligent design" should not blind us to the true scope of our religious bewilderment at the dawn of the twenty-first century. The same Gallup poll revealed that 53 percent of Americans are actually creationists. This means that despite a full century of scientific insights attesting to the antiquity of life and the greater antiquity of the earth, more than half of our neighbors believe that the entire cosmos was created six thousand years ago. This is, incidentally, about a thousand years after the Sumerians invented glue."

that last sentence cracks me up----

Yeah, jojo. I almost drove down to Borders just to read that book; though I have to say reading Harris is like hearing myself think out loud. Astounding how fucked up this Christo-Nation is. Astounding.

u r right----weaning mankind from the sugar teat of religion is gonna take a while, but harris really gets the game moving----he also acknowledges that there is little that most people fear more than an atheist-----
