Shouldn't this forum be re-labeled "Science versus any and all faiths"?
Advertisements [?]
I mean, really, most of us are here in order to share views of Democrats, versus Republicans, the poor workers versus the rich owners.

I religious terms, this boils down to people who promulgate a faith in some people rightfully above others, just as it does in terms of American politics.

I know, heavy thoughts, the religious folks have an agenda to push, just as the Republicans have a mythology to push, namely that going to church once a week, and belief in some phantom, while working 5 days a week for a few hundred dollars, makes you worthwhile, and that your bosses are more deserving than you, just like believers in Christ and all the rest of the bullshit makes religious believers more worthy here the promulgate their bullshit over any other bullshit.

Thought? Opinions?
