And Now For Something Completely the Same
Honestly, this nation needs billboards that say, "Phelps. A National Turd."
Creationist morons want the military to spend more on parapsychology and remote viewing.
WHAT IS REMOTE VIEWING?
Remote viewing could just as easily be called “enhanced instincts and intuition” or maybe “unconventional internal perception.” Remote viewing is the ability to use and improve the “sixth sense” that most or all people reportedly have to some degree.
Remote viewing has reportedly been used successfully in many intelligence and reconnaissance efforts but its use has been limited.
The official remote viewing program was variously under the control of the CIA, Army Intelligence and Security Command, the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and the Air Force in the ‘70s, 80s and early 90s. Project STARGATE was only the last of a series of code names for an effort also known as SCANNATE, GONDOLAWISH, GRILLFLAME, CENTERLANE and SUNSTREAK.
Remote viewing is a skill that seems impossible, beyond belief. [Um, yeeeaaaahh! Excuse me, you're a grown man?] However, remote viewing experts say years of research and practical application of remote viewing in real-life operational settings have proven that it works and works well. That which is not known can become known.
Oh, quite. By all means, let's throw our tax dollars in the toilet because all of the "evidence" for parapsychology isn't "in yet." We can think of no less than an infinite number of crackpot ideas for which the "evidence isn't in yet."
How about some billboards that say, "Fairies. Given them a chance." Well, frankly I wouldn't put anything past Clear Channel. Well, hell, I'll just grab a Tarot deck and nail a Pentagon contract! WTF?
But naturally when it comes to how evolution shaped the eye (over 40 times independently in nature), or homologues we've found in the genes that constructed the bacterial flagellum, or digestion in cows, suddenly "what is not known" can never become known. We'll never be able to answer it, so obviously, the answer is - Goddidit! No "molecules" to milk, people.
Well, that's news to farmers everywhere. (It's not a widely-known fact that rural farmers, at least in Minnesota, have less of a problem with the theory of evolution than do suburban dwellers for whom milk only comes from the grocery store.)
Oh, and abortion may cause cancer in rats. Stunning news, no? Proves that abortion causes breast cancer? Not really. You see, rats don't have breasts. The thing is, it's true that scientists can be wrong - especially isolated, politicized, conspiracy theory spouting Lone Rangers with an agenda.
Business as usual, folks. Which means, ironically, we're winning. :-) (Photo: Ray Comfort in “The Way of the Master” before he lost his own banana argument.)
UPDATED: Um, Ray Comfort invited atheists to his party at his blog, so I went, but my question about why other Christians have accused him of "false teaching" hasn't appeared yet. Oh, well. People shouldn't have accused me of "worshipping Satan." Moi?
In other exciting developments, Kucinich is nicer than Hillary. Blaaaaaah. I also predict that Tuesday will follow Monday. What are the chances?
