RE: God, Government and Freedom—A Response to 'None of the Above'
I've been keeping up with this for a while, but I've just now got a chance to comment. The problem with the war in the Middle East is no longer about nukes or tyrants like Hussein, the problem is that we've already gone in and destabilized it. I'm quite aware that many of the better reasons for going in have been proven false, but the fact is that we are there and they need help pulling themselves together, and we ought to fix what we broke. We owe them that at the very least. The movie Charlie Wilson's War makes a good argument for this position. Anyways, that's my two cents for now.

RE: Emancipate the Embryo! Britain set to enter 'brave new world'
I'm glad to see Britain finally getting back into these issues. I'd like to see some real changes back to Christian principles. I'll be praying things go right.

RE: Beyond Left and Right: Awaiting the Pope’s Next Encyclical
I'm not sure I agree. Those categories would be bad if the meant what they originally meant, but now they just tend to apply to a particular set of ideas. I identify myself as a conservative not because I want to go back to the old days, but because that viewpoint fits with mine on most issues. And conservative isn't exactly against progress. C.S. Lewis once said something to the effect that the real progressive isn't a man who keeps moving down the wrong path, its the one who sees that he has made a wrong turn and goes back to take the right one. They're not very good terms, but for all practical purposes, they work.

RE: Emancipate the Embryo! Britain set to enter 'brave new world'
This leads to some very interesting questions. What is the status of this hybrid, spiritually? Would it have a soul? Or would it just be a mindless beast with some human aspects? Of course, that then leads to the question of the nature of animals, and the possibility of their salvation.

RE: None of the Above: The Only Vote Worth Casting in November?
Allow me to make one comment. All people are fallen, and you've got to be a bit crazy to run for president. There will never be a perfect president, nor has there ever been. Why can't we just choose the lesser of two evils? I care a bit too much just to throw America to the dogs, which is what will happen when good Christians stop voting.

RE: None of the Above: The Only Vote Worth Casting in November?
Well, Larry's too liberal for me, I wouldn't want to see Moe's first Laddie, so I'm settling for Curly. :)

RE: Pro-Life vs. Family Values? Is Newsweek's Jacob Weisberg promoting eugenics?
I love what Palin has done to American politics.

RE: They’ll Believe in Anything: Study says atheists are more irrational
I find that interesting, but not surprising. However, I might have answered yes to some of those questions, but with a distinct Christian twist. I see absolutely no conflict between God and Nessie, in fact I think nessie and others like her are more of a confirmation of a young earth than anything. And as to meaningful dreams, as a Christian the real question is does it still happen often, not does it happen. Not believing in God may mean you believe in anything, but believing in God does not mean you believe in nothing else.

RE: Adam and Eve make a stand in California
Golly, the Bible is pretty clear on the subject! And by no twisting of the words does the changing the family, the basic unit of society, not to mention contradicting biological realities, equal have darker skin! Whatever you may think, many of the people who are anti-gay marriage would have been pro-integration. I myself am one of them.

RE: Secrets of storytelling
What is creation but a story on both a very grande scale, and a very intricate level.
