Faith Vs. Science: Why It is So Important

No need for me to lecture, just observe, if you will:

Now, let me put this into proper perspective in today's climate and struggle for power:

I'm just sayin'...

Southwest Missouri Liberals and Progressives: It's Time to Organize

To anyone in the parts of Southwest Missouri that considers themselves a Liberal, Progressive or even possibly a left-leaning Moderate to get your voice heard and to spread the word.

Don't get me wrong, this is not an attempt to get people to hear a "Preach to the choir" discussion or a way to hear typical dialogue coming from the media echo chamber. No, there are actually people who want to talk Progressive values without resorting to violent outbursts or the need to show up with semi-automatic weapons.

The idea is to discuss ideas, problems and solutions. When those of you who can identify with those of us who are sick of the antiquated mindset of the backwoods logic that has these people turned against their own interests, you owe it to yourself and those who think like you to give this group a try.

For those of you who homophobic, racist, religiously intolerant and stupid enough to back solidly the legislators that are against YOUR interests and you are too stupid to know it, that last sentence was meant for you.

Progressives, it's time to Meetup. You can take that first step by joining us at:

Progressives of Southwest Missouri

If you don't want to join up, it is okay, but remember this, when you get pissed off at these backwoods throwbacks and you feel like no one will listen to you(and you will), you had an opportunity to not be alone and you said, "Pass".

10 Famous Villains Who Were Right All Along

Cracked Magazine recently published an article that actually had "9 Famous Movie Villains Who Were Right All Along". Seems to me that they forgot about Willem Dafoe's quote from Spiderman that is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE:

"The only thing people love to see more than a hero succeed is to watch one fail."

I mean, how fucking cool is that??? Not to mention, the fact that it is SO TRUE! Given today's voyeuristic taste of the TV watcher, you have to admit that this should have been on that list. What can I say, I am just that damn cool.

EDIT: By the way, did Spiderman ever listen to Dafoe? Fuck, NO! And look what happened, Dafoe gets killed off for trying to set his ass straight and Maguire went on to make 2 more Spiderman movies, each one getting progressively worse than the last. Where's the fucking justice???

Just One of MANY Reasons Why Glenn Beck Is As Dangerous As He Is Irresponsible

Recently, there have been a gathering of Progressives in my neck of the woods. This gathering was started by Jim Evans and recently, he submitted something to me and I feel like sharing his thought over the ever-thoughtless Glenn Beck.

I can't even fathom how Glenn Beck actually buys into his own bullshit. Seriously, I don't. I believe he's taken a cue from Rupert Murdoch in just pandering to those who are willing to buy it.

Anyway, here's what Jim submitted to me and right now, I feel like sharing:

Glenn Beck recently said "I don't trust scientists."

Science - is an enterprise that uses mathematics and logic to build and organize verifiable data to form testable explanations and predictions about the natural world.

I have watched Beck use his blackboard and props to craft absurd fantasies.

Perception - is the process of attaining awareness or understanding of sensory information.

Glenn denies the scientific method and instead bases his perception of the world on fallacy, misinformation, and superstition.

He and his followers are lost in a self-fabricated alternate universe. On their island:

1. Evolution is not real.
2. Corporations are living breathing persons.
3. Zygotes are people.
4. Homosexuality is a behavior not an identity.
5. There is an inexhaustible supply of fossil energy.
6. Carbon dioxide is not a greenhouse gas.
7. Poverty, hunger, and disease are because those people are lazy or made the wrong religious choice.
8. The others are evil, suspect, and maybe terrorists.

What we need right now are people who are willing to think and not just watch as some video dipshit dictates to us while we buy into his pseudo-logic and gold bouillon.

Glenn Beck is a fucking disgrace and hazard to common sense, morality and dignity as he has none of these things...and never will.
