They ALL are the measure, the product, of brutal exploitation of the poorest by we rich. FACT.

pic. Debating Creationism vs Science is like debating TV watching vs tennis. They are two different ways to spend, have, a life. They have different external outcomes, but at the heart of it, they come down to how to ‘experience’ as positive a life as possible. Point to ponder - if creationists were the vast majority we would not be on the brink of destroying earth with scientific rape and plunder. Just sayin. Science, as ‘religion,’ Truly, is a basis of that, and it’s cousin, materialistic greed / addiction. No?

ETOM Quote of the Day: “We are on track for having the worst drought in 500 years.” B. Lynn Ingram, University of California, Berkeley The American West is in the 3rd year of a crippling drought that is affecting what is regarded as the most important agricultural region in the nation. No doubt a warning sign of trouble ahead for much of the West (and the world).
