It so horrible that Obamcare is not covering a set of people that Republican governors could cover if they wanted to and that the Republicans fought a supreme court battle so they wouldn't have to be covered.

How horrible of Obama forcing Republicans to do all those things.

Thanks for the retraction, Fox News.

Now, when do you all get around to all the rest of your mistakes, misleading articles and out-right lies?

When are Obama and the Democrats going to do the same?


Once they actually tell lies about the ACA.

FOX News Reports ACTUAL SCIENCE! Creationists Go Out Of Their Ever-Loving MINDS! (With Screenshots)


What absolutely blows me away is that those people could still fit the idea of God into the Big Bang, they just have to attribute TBB itself to him, it's not really that hard to do. It means they can't be Young Earthers, but they've even been given an 'out' there when people say that "God time" is different than time for us.

All these opportunities for them to accept science and still reconcile it with their beliefs, but instead they fight like hell to rationalize a system that hasn't made sense for at least a hundred years...

Any URL with "blogs" in it tells me that it's not news, it's just someone's opinion.

Arumat: grumpfuff: I notice you are committing the major error of assuming fundies have any understanding of the history of science. Shame on you. They don't know what science says or said. They just know it's wrong, because (what they think of it at least) Bible.

Far too much credit.  There's a lot of reading to be done in that thing, so they know it's wrong based on what their preacher of choice and those guys on the radio and internet tell them it says.


and even then, it always somehow coincides with what they want/already believe. If it doesn't then the preacher of choice just made a mistake.

That's what amazes me. I know plenty of Christians and Jews who have absolutely no problem with science. Simply put, they accept everything science says all the way back to the Big Bang, and then they add "And God made the Big Bang." Boom. Problem solved. Old earth, big bang, and creationism all reconciled with a single sentence. But apparently that's too complicated for these idiots. They'd rather take the word of some dude from the medieval period who calculated the time since creation based on what he thought the Bible said. I wonder how many YEC idiots don't realize the 4000 BCE date is from some dude, not from the Bible itself.
What really gets me is that those railing against the Big Bang Theory 'cuz Jeezus & Byebull have absolutely no idea of what the Big Bang Theory replaced, namely, the former Steady-State Theory (now Steady-State Hypothesis at best). That was the previous en vogue theory of cosmology, which held that, yes, the Universe is expanding because spacetime itself is expanding, but that this has been happening since negative eternity. New space, time, matter, and energy are being constantly created, so that the Universe, while getting bigger, remains the same basic density. There was no beginning of time: no moment that was its own present ...

Are you actually requesting that someone photoshop a burn on you that has one of the most famous Obama quotes as its theme?


"If you like your plan, you can keep it" *unless greedy insurance companies cancel it and blame it on the ACA to jack up prices*

Besides, there is no provision in the letter of the ACA law that made the insurance companies cancel their plans. In fact, there were provisions to grandfather the policies that were enacted before 2010.

New space, time, matter, and energy are being constantly created, so that the Universe, while getting bigger, remains the same basic density. There was no beginning of time: no moment that was its own present, had a vast future, yet no past at all, no uncaused cause,

The Big Bang Theory says that, yes, there was indeed a beginning of time, a first moment with no past, an Uncaused Causer. It requires a moment of creation. It leaves room for a Christian-like Creator God. The Steady-State Hypothesis did not. Christians should actually like the Big Bang Theory, at least compared to what it replaced!

This new gravity waves evidence, as well as the discovery decades ago of the Cosmic Background Radiation, have pretty much put paid to the Steady-State Hypothesis even as viable hypothesis, let alone Theory. Christians should be celebrating this!

jjorsett: Bold text added to highlight something of a journalistic innovation - i.e., editorializing within a correction.

Innovation? Anyone remember the Dan Rather, "Fake but accurate" claim?


Sure do: CBS interviewed Marian Carr Knox, a secretary at Ellington Air Force Base from 1956-1979 and Killian's assistant on the dates of the memos. Although Knox felt the memos reflected the truth about Bush's alleged service failures,[90] she also stated she did not type the memos, they were not written by Killian, and that she had no firsthand knowledge of Bush's time in the Guard.[92] Knox said, "The information in here was correct, but it was picked up from the real ones," she said. "I probably typed the information and somebody picked up the information some way or another."  The New York Times' headline, including the phrase "Fake but Accurate," became a widely used derisive comment from right-leaning critics of CBS.

S
o here you are, jjorsett, years later still parroting your right-wing talking points that you were told to believe.  But I appreciate the opportunity you've given to state once again, George W Bush deserted his unit during the Vietnam War - there is no evidence that he ever reported for duty with the Alabama National Guard and thus he deserted his unit.  Thanks, jjorsett, and keep up the good work.

Here's what I don't get. They refuse to accept that our universe could "spontaneously happen" but they insist that a being capable of creating our universe spontaneously happened.
