    Are you for a state amendment or Constitutional Amendment?

    So, the Constitution doesn't grant rights. True. It limits government frim infringing on our rights. Also true. How, though, is government to create laws for us to follow? If it cannot take away rights, how can it rightfully take away someone's rights to steal, lie under oath, cheat on his...

    "Intelligent Design" Debunked

    I don't get why people continue to attack creationism and intelligent design simply on the basis that they are religious in nature. The fact that humans can alter species themselves doesn't discredit the hypothesis that God can alter species, too. It's getting old, and what gets me is that the...

    Constitutional Limitations

    The problem here is that a constitutional amendment is not treated as a federal law. It becomes part of the Constitution, and cannot, by definition, be unconstitutional. Again, the Supreme Court cannot say that a constitutional amendment is uncostitutional, and it has no power to repeal an...

    Constitutional Limitations

    Who, may I ask, then, determines what the constitution should say? Have you read the preamble to the Constitution? It makes it clear, at the very beginning that it is "we the people" who give government it's authority, and it would follow that it would be us who should change it if we feel it...

    I though for a moment there, you were talking about Oregon.

    Seperation of Church and State

    I think that's because they are supposedly a majority, and the news that we typically hear about is situations where rights are being infringed. You know, Judge Roy Moore, the Boy Scouts, and various christian groups being denied equal privileges on school grounds. Every one has a right to...

    School uniforms

    I personally think that uniforms can be a good thing. They teach a degree of discipline, and that life isn't always about what s/he wants to do or wear. Sometimes, we have to live up to someone else's stanndards. That's a fact of life that I don't think an unreasonable addition to school...

    Are you for a state amendment or Constitutional Amendment?

    It is not strictly a US phenomenon. European countries are facing it, as well. It is legal in the Netherlands, and the effects can be seen, as marriage has seen an overall decline, more people just live together, child birth rates are declining, and divorce rates are rising. Sure, some people...

    A simple Yes or No with a short explanation.

    Why not? If it's murder, shouldn't it be punished as such?

    The "Theory" of Evolution vs. "Creationism"

    I fail to see how this is circular reasoning. If the Bible is purely figurative, then the 2nd law of thermodynamics would not be at all relevant, and your original question would be baseless. As for miracles, they still happen today. I used to have very poor vision, and had extremely thick...

    The "Theory" of Evolution vs. "Creationism"

    On the contrary, these miracles are the evidence of an outside influence, don't you think? The outside influence which is required for disorder to become order, according to the laws of nature.

    The "Theory" of Evolution vs. "Creationism"

    No, I deny evolution because it doesn't make any sense to me. I don't see how people can look at the evidence at our disposal and arbitrarily say that this is what happened, when the evidence doesn't have strong indications that that is, indeed, what happened. Why create flightless mammals...

    Seperation of Church and State

    A big part of my position is based on the fact that I believe the separation of church and state goes both ways. I have said before that the first amendment was intended to avoid, not only a government-backed church, but also a church-backed government. The two should be mutually exclusive...

    Seperation of Church and State

    The first amendment was intended to protect our rights to worship, plain and simple. It bars government from infringing upon our rights to religious exercise, and I believe that it applies to every where that we may go. If I, or my daughter chooses, to exercise our religion at work or school...

    Though it's far from the Christmas spirit, it's nice to know I'm hated by someone. :rock I didn't blame Congress, or give them credit (depending on which way you look at the war), I just said that it doesn't make sense to continue insisting that President Bush used the intel to deceive the...
