    How does your reply tie to the OP? There is nothing in post #1 that says anything about homosexuality or same sex marriage.

    A commenter may have thoughts on a subject but if that person doesn't post words to this forum that others may read, none of us can know what those thoughts might be.

    Just think of me as being incredibly obtuse and assume that if I don't see words then I know nothing about your favourite subjects.

    Your comment doesn't tie in. The thread asks which is more crucial: Freedom of Religion or the Mandate to Evolve. Of course this poll was inspired by some moronic leftist opinion that the only way for a religion to survive, is if it embraces gay marriage. Where in YOUR post does it tie in with that?

    I do think the question makes a bit of sense. There is no mandate anywhere. Unless your talking about a biological one, which really isn't ours to control. So, try to clear up your illogical question if you would.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    You might be surprised. Einstein wasn't accepted by "everyone" for decades even though Relativity had huge acceptance almost from the get go. Darwin still isn't accepted by "everyone" as you should well know. Where do you draw the line?

    Again, you're talking about the masses, not the "scientists" of the times.

    In regards to GW, there are a few scientists with opposing opinions, and to mention that during a lesson is not a big deal. What are you so afraid of anyway?

    That's the very root of the idea. The next step, a better society, something superior, cast off your old foolish ways, and so on and so forth. Whether its' the dialectic or the mandate of history, or the need to evolve, or the sense of the times, or whatever the catchphrase of the geography and time is, the idea is the same - humanity must be dragged kicking and screaming into the future of my preference, which I have decided is a self-evident superior option to today.

    I would've accepted just Charzard.
