This is true. There do seem to be LOTS of people who prefer "living" in the 14th century and remaining willfully ignorant of the VAST amount of science that is known.
BTW, the VAST majority of the world's scientists and populace DO accept the scientific validity of the ToE.
I do too, but I see absolutely no rationality in "just dismissing" other possibilities from realms of that which we do NOT know, or do I see ANY justification, whatsoever, in excusing just vile behavior against others, under the mere Ignorant "guide" of NOT believing in a "higher realm" (of whatever sort).

Mostly because I don't believe in using just Ignorance as an excuse, on EITHER side of THAT aisle either.

Ignorance is ignorance, but willfull ignorance out of nothing but Hate, is , with out a doubt, the worse of the proverbial "evils".

It won't be long before the majority are people who don't get married because both the liberal and conservative parties are only interested in enslaving everyone with legal obligations through marriage.
So you see marriage as "enslavement"?

Stop sounding like Charles Idemi, demanding gay marriage as a Constitutional right when it isn't.

The word marriage is not mentioned once in the Constitution.

Actually, I misread your post initially lol.

FACT-REAL Truth on the topic would say- We do NOT know...because ANYTHING else would be a LIE.

(and expereince has shown me...too much negative..is NOT good for people...not at all...and those who only wish to try and "shove" their own negetives down others throats, I find to be rather "e-VILE" in "nature".

As in-EWE-TOXIN alert!

and as for the rest of your post here--I find all that dark age goat herder stuff only slightly useful, like for examples of how NOT to mire through life barbarically UNenlightened.
That, and for the studies of historical civilization as far as insights into-as we know it...thus far anyway!

You do NOT know that.

In 2013, people should WAKE up, and stop HATING that which thye do not agree with--as well as stop trying to shove their own beliefs (OR disbeliefs) down anyone else's throats, and act more like civilized adults, rather than petulant CHILDREN, just trying to have their own way, at everyone/anyone else's expense.

My current project is a video game, I had to learn how to put my artwork into 3D actually, thus that entire channel's existence, I was practicing sculpting on a computer in place of using clay or various other materials. I'm a music critique as well, well not a publishing critique, I help musicians who are just starting out by offering them tips on how to improve their quality. Of course I'd rather be the artist, thus my pride and joy, the one video that I finally achieved my goal of sculpting on a digital format:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =57Ozwn7kYwYXX
I also play all woodwinds, was recruited for school band but it never interested me as much as sculpting, if only I got along with the idiotic art teachers that thought only one type of art was actually art. I am a table top gamemaster as well, as in, I create the stories and plots for the players to enjoy. Pretty popular in my heyday, such a high demand players actually paid my rent a lot so I could run more games more often. That was my favorite form of art, the character development and tales we could create.
You should avoid making assumptions, I know it's a habit, but assumptions tend to fail more often than not. Psychoanalysis isn't even accurate all the time, it's only about 75% accurate actually, thus why psychiatry is not a real science.
cool videos...excellent.

A judge's legal opinion is not an opinion. It's professional interpretation of the law. What matters is the law, not a vigilante opinion. Otherwise, it will just get overturned in a higher court and the vigilante judge will eventually be dismissed.

You can't make medical decisions for a dead person. If you're talking about making medical decisions for someone who is unable to make them for themselves, I don't see that as a problem that can't be resolved by a civil union. It's still a financial decision.

What social engineering programs? The ones you won't get because homosexuality is not a Constitutionally protected condition.

I see marriage under American law as an unconscionable contract. To defend it is to impose a form of permanent servitude that you can call many things, but it amounts to slavery.

Idemi dictates reality in every other post that he posts. But at least he doesn't parse things to an @nal level when he's obviously in the wrong.

Your interpretation of relationships does not matter. What matters is that nothing explicit is in the Constitution. The Constitution is about explicit rights, with a sweeping closing statement where any rights NOT specified in the Constitution are retained by the States or the people. Oops! Darn the fine print! We don't know if marriage is a State thing or a people thing, but it's not a Constitution thing.

I never heard of that case. You seem to collect factoids on the subject, even though you're not from Virginia. This IS personal, isn't it? Well, enough said.

Politics. End of discussion.

That's a bigoted statement. I'm an atheist and I don't make sweeping generalizations to the point where all religious people are meddlers who should all die off.

I'm not a fan of mob behavior and keep a very jaded view of religion, but you are a flaming hypocrite.

Saying "it can't be from" means you are saying you do know, so you contradicted yourself and exposed yourself to be a liar for your god in only a couple sentences. Still not a record, there are some on here who have done that same thing in three words.
I am just expressing my opinion on this subject. I did not contradict myself or am I a liar.
