@marco draco: Could it be a "Big daddy" Cane toad invasion? If that's the case, we need only fear his hoes and his pimp hand.

Cheers for heads-up. I'm glad to see a forum like this in a place where we aren't subject to Xtian argumentum ad hominem!

Regarding "Galileo was Satire"....he has a point. A lot of what got the vatican all riled up in the day was Galileo's style, his popularity among the common people, and abrasiveness with which he presented his point of view. The author's comment ,"..."Not about God or belief or high ideals, but about power and popularity," is very true. After all, what is a key tennant of the vatican; power and control. Publish ideas that erode their power and control, regardless of subject matter, and the vatican powers become concerned. It's control and power that religions crave, not truth. For if they craved truth, they would be long extinct by now.

Galileo was satire.
I like to ramble on when I read something like this, but I don't know what to say about this one. Take a look at the rest of the site, there's plenty to chew on.
