A Better View of the Feud Between Science & Religion

My brother brought me this link from reddit.

The title is unrelated because this short essay gives facts about the history of conflict between science & religion. A nice vantage to view our current state.

The Palestinian Problem

I received (elsewhere) a reply to a post in which I provided a Pat Condell video and transcript which had nothing to do with the "Palestinian Problem".  I received the following reply (edited for grammar):

I also was subscribed to Pat Condell’s YouTube channel but just was shocked and couldn’t agree with  his views on Israel.  I really don't see how anyone who often goes on about human rights can talk as if Israel can do no wrong – AND he gets the real news on the matter…

Surprise!

Since I'm a senior in high school, I've been getting a lot of stuff from colleges interested in me. Phone calls, mailers, email, DVDs, you get the idea.

I just got a call from Simpson U, a college in I-don't-know-where. The guy on their end asks me casually how I'm doing (this seems to be the most common question). Then he talks a… Continue
