Do you watch TV?
Mr. Leno continues to lead the late-night ratings race, ahead of both Mr. Letterman and Mr. Kimmel, respectively, according to Nielsen figures provided by NBC.
US – Jay Leno may not be the most popular TV personality, but a recent generous gesture might see his number of supporters increasing.
The late night talk show host has reportedly offered to take a pay cut in order to ensure the job security of his staffers.
NBC, broadcaster of Leno’s show, The Tonight Show, have already laid off about 20 employees, and have plans to continue culling jobs.
Seems a good guy
That's one hell of a non-sequitur...

Christianity: The belief that some cosmic Jewish Zombie can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him that you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree.
Makes perfect sense.
A better storyline than the Twilight movies...

"The good thing about science is that it's true whether or not you believe in it."
Neil deGrasse Tyson

Even if the theists prevail, the discoveries of science will still apply.

Although, in all fairness not so long ago, I suspected a divine intervention when my Windows machine did boot up.
So basically, what you mean by this is that it's impossible for anyone of faith to believe that science is true?

Atheists criticize Christians because they want to be acknowledged by the true body of Christ, but they can't stand to be part of it.

No doubt. After all, ignorance is the only path to their eternal salvation. Why risk your eternal soul absorbing a few facts?
