I've been praying for our furture President and will continue even though I do not agree with the things that he believes in, according to his book...evolution, science, global warming...I'm a Christian. I know that God created the earth and all that is on it. Without God, no one would have discovered anything like "Science", and for global warming...God is not going to let this earth be destroyed...HE is coming back to reign here forever and ever. Matt. 24:6 "you will hear of wars and rumors of wars...

Our "furture" President is flattered, I am sure.

So you don't believe in that bit in Revelation where he goes on and on about how one third of the world is going to get burned etc?

"you will hear of wars and rumors of wars..."

Congratulations, ye of little wit, you just described all of human history – before and after the Bible.

I thought god helped those who helped themselves.

Well, it's good to know they're praying FOR him at least. (Though what those prayers may entail is anybody's guess.)

Oh, and BrightStars? Actually that was said by Ben Franklin. (Sorry, I get picky about that.)

As long as they're praying, they'll stay out of trouble.

If it wasn't for Superman, a comet would have crashed into the earth and killed everybody. Superman will fix global warming by pushing the earth farther away from the sun. Imaginary entities can do anything you want to imagine they do.

You don't beleive in science? Then get off the internet and live in a cave, dumbass.

Two hands working can do more than a million clasped in prayer

Two weeks ago you were all praying Obama wouldn't get the job. What makes you think it'll be any more effective this time?

Yep, it's a doomsday cult.

I'm tired of people not "believing" in science, evolution, and global warming.

From dictionary.com:
/b?'liv/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [bi-leev]
verb, -lieved, -liev·ing.

—Verb phrase

6. believe in,
a. to be persuaded of the truth or existence of: to believe in Zoroastrianism; to believe in ghosts.
b. to have faith in the reliability, honesty, benevolence, etc., of: I can help only if you believe in me.

Science, evolution, and global warming exist.

A more accurate way to express that you aren't persuaded of the truth of something like evolution would be to say that you don't understand it. You don't. Stop saying "believe" like it is something similar to your collection of bronze-age, sheep-herder myths. It's not. You just have to be able to use your head.

Harmless drool.

a mind far far away

I see letters, words, phrases, and sentences, and it resembles English, but none of it makes any sense.

Evolution, science, and global warming? Are those really the best three things that you can come up with? Those things don't even clash with your views, unless of course you're an idiotic literalist.

Evolution says that species grow and change in order to live and thrive in their environments. This is a natural fact, and that statement does not necessarily have to be accompanied by the idea of common descent. You can believe that God poofed thousands of species into existence at once if you want, but you must accept that said species are capable of evolving over long periods of time.

Science? That's so vague. In addition to evolution, science includes practically every advancement we've ever experienced in our existence. Medicine, tools, frozen dinners, printing presses, and your computer are all products of science. If you don't "believe in" science, I suggest you stop using all of these things and find yourself a cave. Oh, and you're also not allowed to use fire to keep yourself warm.

Global warming? In no way does that conflict with Christian ideals. The planet is slowly getting noticeably warmer, and weather patterns are changing to reflect that. Will this culminate in the actual destruction of the planet? Probably not. Will it last forever? Unlikely. Will people continue to suffer because of these changes? Absolutely.

All 1,000,000 of you could much better use your time by doing something productive. Your "knee-mail" is pointless. Obama will be just fine without your babbling to yourself.

Captain Obvious

Since when did someone compile all of that into a book?

Wouldn't that be very inefficient? We would have to keep updating it every year.

I mean if you didn't update the book you would end up with some kind of outdated piece of worthless ignorance. We already have one of those.

11/18/2008 9:18:05 PM


God won't LET global warming happen. Hmm. That is the first time I've read that argument, which is more realistic than pretending to understand the science, and then repudiate it.

11/18/2008 9:59:03 PM


A laudable and Christian thing to do, to pray for people. It's like sending good wishes or kind thoughts.

I'm afraid the rest of the post if confused and confusing.

11/18/2008 10:25:14 PM


"God is not going to let this earth be destroyed"
No, he wants to do THAT himself...

11/18/2008 10:41:43 PM


God is not going to let this earth be destroyed.

He let a third of the population of Europe die of the Plague. Why wouldn't He let the earth suffer the consequences of global warming?

*returns phone handset to cradle*

Just spoke with President-elect Obama. I told him about your prayer-thing, and he said his entire new administration breathed a collective sigh of relief, knowing that you were there for them.

*phone rings*

He just called back. Told me to tell you he was kidding, and he wants you to fuck off.

11/18/2008 11:36:07 PM


Your 'knowledge' is wrong.

11/18/2008 11:48:59 PM


Lemme guess ... you don't like "Science" because your Junior High School science teacher flunked you, right?
