    Via – that is one of the dumbest things I’ve read so far on this board. You have never, ever, read anything about evolution. If you had, you would not make such ridiculous comments.

    Gravity is also a theory. Jumped off any buildings head first lately to test that out? The idea that the Earth goes around the sun is also a theory. You must be a catholic if you deny that. They have a history of such things. You have no idea what a theory is.

    37% are hopelessly lost in fairy tales of the magic sky daddy, 25% are starting to clear their head of the fog, and 21% understand science. These are actually very encouraging numbers to clear minded, educated, rationally thinking people. I would suspect 50 years ago, the numbers would be quite heavily weighted to the magic sky daddy side of the graph. Either way, evolution isn’t a popularity contest. It is fact. It does not require your belief for it to be so.

    Clearly an assault knife was used. Probably had one of those “high capacity” blades too. And painted scary black, no doubt!

    The Justice Department, appealing this decision, said requiring a warrant for GPS tracking would “come at great expense to law enforcement investigations” and “would seriously impede the government’s ability to investigate drug trafficking, terrorism, and other crimes.”

    Exactly. That’s what the constitution is supposed to do. It is supposed to restrain the government and make it hard for them to suppress the people.

    I don’t know the law in NY, but in Texas, what he did is assault. Texas law allows you to defend yourself to the point that you (or the person you are acting to protect) is no longer in danger. In this case, the woman was on the ground and (presumably) no longer a danger to the man. Maybe she was reaching for a concealed handgun, but the article says nothing about her being armed so I’ll go with what’s presented. However, he continued the attack. His actions are indefensible. Same with use of lethal force. If someone unlawfully enters your home, you are allowed to use deadly force to defend it. However, if you dump your clip of .45 hollow points into the invader, then reload and dump another AFTER the invader is unconscious on the ground, disarmed and bleeding to death… you just committed murder.

    So maybe NY law allows you to continue assaulting a non-threatening target to the point that their head caves in. No idea.

    I’ll just start by saying that I too am an atheist. These atheist groups that sue for things like this just irritate me to no end. These groups DO NOT speak for all atheists. I have no problem what so ever with this cross used as a memorial. In fact, I applaud and support it. It gives people comfort. It does not harm me in any way nor does it violate the constitution in any way. Count me as a reasonable atheist that supports this cross.
