Well in a sense the Constitution has evolved, amended 27 times.
I know you understand what the Bill of Rights were.
Your point is well taken, but amendments have not always kept pace with change. Examples are Emancipation Proclamation and FDR's New Deal.

Does it? Rocks tested by a christian scientist came with results of 7'000 years.
I don't believe it. That just can't be. Those rocks in your head can't be antiques, Dan Mortinsane.

By the way, I think I know the scientist you are talking about. His methodology is crap, his work couldn't make it in a reputable journal and it is meaningless.

You need to stop looking to your daddy, FAKE VET for sources of information.

What are you babbling about Dan?

Doesn't Greater Life cover mental illness in your benefits package. I wonder if they cover your trips down to Jamaica to take care of the weed problem?

The conclusion I have come to from my reading of US history is that our founders didn't intend it to be a static document, but rather one that could grow to encompass circumstances that they could not foresee. I don't know how they could have tweeked it for speed. Perhaps that is what we must deal with in order that it not change too much or in the wrong direction.

If I am not mistaken, a strict constructionist views the document as completely static and if the founders had intended for something to be in there, they would have put it in there. Fortunately, our founders appear to have been much more intelligent men than the run of the mill strict constructionist.

Interesting thought. The Bible stopped evolving around 2000 years ago. The Constitution stopped evolving around 236 years ago, and Norton stopped evolving around 60 years ago.
Thats funny Dawg. Was that for the sake of the joke or do you consider the Constitution a static document? This may be a Christmas miracle if I have found something that we don't agree on.

The real miracle may be that two different individual agree so often.

It appears I made a spelling error in the word "balloon." I left the "o" out. Much like your ex-wife did the last time you mounted her before the divorce.

AL SELLS TO AL-JAZEERA. GORE THE CLIMAGETE WHORE!
THE SALE OF CURRENT TV TO THE QATAR-OWNED NEWS ORGANIZATION AL-JAZEERA has been finalized, failed presidential candidate and noted global warming activist Al Gore announced Tuesday.
But perhaps more notable than the fact that the longtime proponent of “environmental causes” has sold his pet project to a company that relies on oil money is the fact that Gore actually turned down a higher offer from Glenn Beck.
TheBlaze was reportedly told by the network that “the legacy of who the network goes to is important to us and we are sensitive to networks not aligned with our point of view,” according to sources familiar with the situation.
Now that Al-Jazeera’s running the show, will Current TV host and former Michigan governor Jennifer Granholm have to wear a burqa?
~ Rush Limbaugh
I think Rush should wear a burqa so we don't accidentally catch a look at his bodacious man rack.

Good morning--well stated!! I agree (oh wow..we're on a roll) that the authors attempted to design a document which could adapt to a rapidly changing society. Of course, it's not perfect but has definitely served well as a foundation for a government of the people. The authors set forth a document that provided a course to ward off the machinations of rule such as they had suffered at the hands of the British. Nevertheless, they could not have imagined the drastic, rapid change their country would experience in the following 200+ years. There have certainly been circumstances that even amendments could not adequately address. But, all in all, they did a darn good job......

Funny thing.....you don't know anything about either the Bible or the Constitution. That impression comes from the comments you make! You must blow hot air!

Well, of course the Constitution allows for amendment, and has been "tweaked" many times.

Also, of course the Bible has been "tweaked" thousands of times, and is still being "tweaked" (e.g. the "Holman Christian Standard Bible," which is yet another endeavor to get rid of those pesky inconsistencies which "true believers" know that are not actually there).

I will not speculate whether "Norton" has been "tweaked," or "evolved," or not.

If you want to throw a REAL rock at me, tell me that existing objects do not "evolve," but actually grow or change. I consider "evolution" to be the change over time (usually large periods of time) of living species on this planet.

So, I guess my comment was a joke. At least, it gave "Poo" a good laugh, which was the intent of my effort.

MISSING:$400 PURSE HOLDING $800 CASH, PLUS FOOD STAMP CARDS

West Plains police just reported that a missing brain has been found sitting on top of a computer keyboard on downtown Main Street. The brain was completely devoid of grey matter or any signs of intelligence, except for the words "Muslim Communist" written on it in magic marker. Food stamps were found nearby. It is believed that the brain did not work for years, but existed on free government handouts.
