I think a lot of people are mistaking faith for dogma. When I talk about faith. I'm simply refering to the belief in something you can't explain..you can't prove. yet you know is there. To borrow from the movie Contact I pose this to you: Do you love your parents?....Prove it. there is no equation for that shit.

I am by nature a logical person. but to say everything is science and nothing else. I find something lacking in that.
And to me, blind faith that science has the answers is no different from the blind faith in the idiotic dogma of some religions. It just seems obvious to me that science and faith have more in common that both of them would care to admit.

When I see the pundits on both sides arguing and debating over what should be taught in schools and the like. I don't see people searching for truth. I see people searching for power. Cuz see, we already have a choice in what we believe and how we are taught. if you are secular, you can go to a public school, if you're devoutly religious, you can go to a parochial school. If you don't like either one, you can be homeschooled. The freedom of choice already exists. Once again, why do we seem to be so concerned about what other people believe? These pundits are seeking the power to choose for you, and to say that their opinions on such personal matters are superior to yours. THAT's when I say to heck what they think. What are they going to do...outlaw schools that don't teach beliefs that aren't their own? That treads awful close to Isaac Hayes-ian levels of bigotry and intolerance
