Thanks. Sadly, the UK also has irrationals like Oprah spouting tripe on the idiot box.

I do love the wonder of this world but awe is a bit of an emotitard stretch word.

You don't understand contemporary America. Real ideas and thinking are out of fashion here. Americans are fascinated with celebrities. Anyone who is on TV or whose picture is on the cover of the National Enquirer is automatically an expert on everything, far more expert than people who actually study and do research. The opinions of Kim Kardashian or Brad Pitt are accorded far more weight than those of a Nobel Prize winner. Oprah is on the TV and in movies, so she is automatically a theological genius to the average American.
