Interesting things I've run across lately

"The majority of Americans don't accept a natural origin of life... To effectively educate children about life, therefore, science standards must be readjusted so that exposure to evolution is commenced in kindergarten, when it might better counteract the creation mythologies that kids are getting at home. Waiting until high school to detail the meaning of life is, as polls show, not so effective. The projects above are my futile attempts to propagate and support this opinion." - Colin Purrington on (

"Although scientists worldwide view evolution and natural selection as completely uncontroversial, popular support in the United States is waning, especially with respect to the origin of humans. Without more public displays of affection for the theories of natural selection and evolution, it is likely that more and more schools will allow or even promote the teaching of evolution "alternatives" that invoke dabbling by supernatural entities. To provide some of the needed visible support for science and reason, please consider stickering something with his image. Sure, these efforts are probably completely futile, but wouldn't you sleep better tonight knowing that you've done your part to delay our slip into Dark Ages II?" -

I believe it is true. Charles Darwin does have a posse, and they want your children.

Another bit of news that you probably haven't hear about.

"They refuse to accept, because of their political ideology, that he has actually done more than any American president for Africa. But it’s empirically so.”- Geldof

"The most important and toughest nut is still President Bush. He feels he’s already doubled and tripled aid to Africa, which he has. But he started from far too low a place. It’s hard for him because of the expense of the war and the debts. But I have a hunch that he will step forward with something. And it’ll take somebody like him.” - Bono (both quotes from

It is certainly a change you hear any rock star praise Bush for anything. I just those quotes were interesting. Feel free to leave your opinions.
