Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

CONJUNCTIONS
Conjunctions are words used as joiners.
Different kinds of conjunctions join different kinds of grammatical structures.
The following are the kinds of conjunctions:
A. COORDINATING CONJUNCTIONS
for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so
Coordinating conjunctions join equals to one another:
So, conjunctions aren't adjectives correct?

So, just including "and" into your little list makes your terribly dense and/or a troll. I'm guessing AND a troll.

I share you enthusiasm for space science. The problem facing manned exploration of mars in the next 100 years is going to be funding.
But the most economical way to explore mars is doing what we are doing now and that is using the rovers. They can stay longer. Work 24hours non stop and provide tons of research science.
Instead of going to mars we can bring mars to us using these advanced rovers. The rovers can collect the samples, then load them up on a vehicle and bring them back to earth.
The moon may be a different issue. We may could cost justify going back to manned exploration of the moon to mine Uranium 3. That would be exciting and full of first. Like the first woman on the moon. Here again it may be cheaper to use moon rovers.
With the baby boomers getting older. Healthcare extreme cost and military spending. Every dollar for science research is going to have to be spent with the thought of getting the most science for each dollar.
NASA's Curiosity rover cost about $2.5 billion.

An estimated $71 billion is lost per year to religious tax exemptions.

If we taxed religious organizations we could send 28 rovers to Mars per year, forever.

ALSO ... PROJECTED TAX SPENDING FOR 2013 --

2.5 cents out of every tax dollar is spread across ALL science funding. Total $29.5 billion.

57 cents out of every tax dollar goes to the military. Total $653 billion.

I saw a couple of your posts go by that I considered commenting on, but deferred. I wasn't sure if you were into the finer points of language or not. By the above, I see that you are an eager and cunning linguist, so I'm sure that you'll take the following in the spirit in which it is intended.

"Simple" isn't always an insult. In fact, it usually isn't. But "simplistic" is. You can't use it before "minded," nor do you need to.

Simple dreams are fine - work that you enjoy, a happy love life, whatever. But simplistic ones are not

This was awkward and jejune. Try "delusions of adequacy," which is not overworked yet. Also, remember that it's not an inferiority complex if you're actually inferior. I think you know where I'm going with this.

Taxing non profit organizations is not advised.

However I will side with you on one point. These religious organizations that are mega profiteers from TV programs should get the hell taxed out of them. We all know these TV preachers are lining their pockets with the money from the poor and working class.

They’re on TV not to spread the gospel but to gain financially. One that comes to mind is Kenneth Copeland.
Yes, lets tax the TV ministries, I’m with you on that one.
