Do you have any examples to back up this "theory", or do you just believe it because Sean Hannity tells you so?
He did throw his buddy Rev. Wright under the bus when it was poltically beneficial to do so.
My big thing with Obama is the cost, he wants to spend so much money. The last thing we need is more gov. spending. The last I heard was his global welfare program, where he intends to use U.S. dollars to make sure every child in every nation gets water/food/etc. When you come down to it Obama wants to redistribute wealth ("I am my brothers keeper"), basically socialism.
Now I dont agree with Mccain on everything like immgration, although he is now for the fence first then amnesty, which i guess is a start. I like the approach to minimize government and stop spending. I think that if government got out the way everyday people can make this society better off.
Those pointing out Palin has no experience, be careful cause Obama's record isnt much better and he is running for Pres.

You will never find my cave infidel! No shit, right after 9/11 my mom calls me up in tears scared silly someone would mistake me for him and bust a cap in my terrorist ass.
This just in, almost made me choke on a cheerio.
Well our country is very racist I am embarrassed to admit. Some of the things I heard were awful, and those from the so called "progressive" states. It is sad really. If this country passes him up just for the color of his skin it will be a real shame.Ganepark32 said:Anyways, I do hope Obama gets elected. From his speeches to his policies, they just seem right for the current political climate, he does have to correct package to move American forward. I just hope when it does come to voting that certain sections of America's population don't just go,' He's black. I'm not voting for him.' I'm looking at you, Southern states.

You can have both. You just don't teach them in the same class. E.g. please don't teach me calculus in my literature class and vice versa.
I think people with or without organized religion in their lives should at least learn about what most of the world believes in. Great. Teach that in theology courses and even make it mandatory. But don't teach my kids creationism in a science class. It's not a debate over theories. It's a definition of what science (and therefore science class) is. Science is the study of observable phenomena. Observation of what someone wrote in a book doesn't count.That's a great way of looking at it.
Sadly politicians aren't quite that opinionated (in public) and tend to follow other agendas.
From the article I quoted - Palin is a creationist and Obama and McCain are 'on the fence' <_<
Neither want's to stand on either side and lose votes
Not a clue where they or Obama's veep actually stand
(But I'm sure that someone will enlighten me)
for the record - I call myself a zen-scientist. I'm spirtually closest to Buddhism with a base view of everything
I'd class your view as a scientific christian - it allows faith but tempered by what modern science tells us.
Creationists believe that evolution is a disprovable theory because they can't see it happening experimentally and think that a scientist's open mind to being wrong is a failing of the science where their closed mind view is the source of them being right, because they can't see a full and proper scientific explanation.
[Ask any scientist if they are 100% sure and they have to say 'no']
That is why creationists want it taught along-side evolution in science class. They want equality at a scientific level because proper scientific process has to allow their theory.
Creationists are an electorally powerful group that can make a candidate appear weaker by losing votes in some states, thus affecting the voting in other states, so candidates have to appease them.
Scientists, on the other hand, aren't.
