Most people don't even vote for their school board members, the largest spenders of local taxes and managers of education (first bastion for/against creationism, etc.). Usually it is no more than a popularity contest among the idle rich and powerful.
Oh wait! That is all of American politics.
Never mind. Pass the blindfold, I can't watch anymore. <head on desk>
Did you know the Amish don;t teach religion in their schools here and that they are open to the public ?
The Amish continue to amaze me, or a group that looks so much like a cult on the outside, they're pretty open and wonderful people. They are one of those rare paradoxes that can actually exist it seems.

Truth is relative, it's subjective, that is why science doesn't deal with truth, it's flawed.

Argh, the cro-magnum level of study ... it hurts my head.
No, we first thought it was finite, then we thought it was infinite .... the Hawking proposed that it was finite, which pretty much everyone agrees now ... however now we have this concept of a lot of, possibly infinite in number, universes all over the place just like ours, or perhaps ours is part of another. Do you read anything that is printed after 1930?

I wish, then I could make a fortune being a study case for a lot of scientific fields. Money just for giving some blood and answering stupid questions, win-win.

It's "Cro-magnon".

Unless you're talking about a gun specifically for crows.

That would be a "crow-magnum".

"Truth is relative." Again, this is an absolute statement implying truth is absolutely relative. Besides positing an absolute, suppose the statement was true and "truth is relative." Everything including that statement would be relative. If a statement is relative, it is not always true. If "truth is relative" is not always true, sometimes truth is not relative. This means there are absolutes, which means the above statement is false. When you follow the logic, relativist arguments will always contradict themselves.

You fail!!!

Precedent, Eagle.
When the Supreme Court rules, it will set precedent.
Not precedence--precedent.

4 one way, 4 the other.

The 5th vote, Justice Kennedy, will decide.

He has been supportive of gay rights, so I am hopeful.
