    According to this Arizona State Senator.



    I hope God gives her the mine she wants.

    When you say, oh lord, are you in fact referring to your Cookie-ness?

    Of course not. Cookies are merely the manna of his divine noodleness.

    Well, she's pushing for the uranium mine and pooh-poohing the environmentalists, so, yeah, right-winger.

    too bad uranium has a half-life of about... 4.4 billion years. That's like 3 times as old as the earth according to her science and math skills

    Well that doesn't prove anything. God is omnipotent. He can create uranium that is already degraded by 4,399,994,000 years. Duh! And don't ask why He would do that! That's heretical.

    Well regardless of what you believe, as is your opinion/as she is entitled to hers, Creation or Evolution, the fact remains: She seems, from what I can see in that clip, that she cares about her state and was doing her job. Isn't that most important? Regardless of what your opinion is, you gotta give credit where credit's due. If she was anything like the CRIMINALS that run Detroit- you'd tell a different story. I say "Don't nick-pick!" Your mayor could be investigated and charged with violence on a police officer, years of stealing tax payers money all while having an affair with a female council member and then finally hauled off to jail. Then 2 months later have your council woman act a huge fool while still another is charged with avoiding tax paying and yet another is caught pocketing tax payers money.

    This is an example of ridiculousness. Faith believing is not ridiculousness.

    HERE'S DETROIT! WE CANADIANS SEE THIS EVERYDAY ACROSS THE BORDER! The poor people of Detroit do NOT deserve this type of leadership!

    While I believe there are different levels of stupidity, faith believing IS ridiculous in this case. Her point was that the earth has no need of environmentalists because, after all, God is its custodian. That kind of thinking is ridiculous. Criminal, actually.

    hehe... that was like Jerry Springer.

    But I totally disagree with you. I don't care how passionate she is. the bitch is trying to build a uranium mine. do you have any idea how toxic that is? if someone doesn't have the knowledge of basic geology to know the earth is more than 6,000 years old, how in the world is she going to properly weigh the environmental externalities? Arguing on city council doesn't give kids cancer 500 years from now.

    Well I continue, somehow to be amazed and incredulous to the stupidity of others. Apparently, she is unfamiliar with the concept of carbon dating and the empirical evidence of the earth's age.

    I'll never understand literal interpretation of religious sources over conceptual interpretations which ultimately lay the guiding principles of any faith. I am unsure what the value is in believing literally in the Genesis story over the incredible miracle of evolution. The sheer magnitude of how the universe was created, is growing and continues to breed galaxy after galaxy and perhaps life beyond our planet is far more 'interesting' to me when I think about the possibility of "god" versus a story that depicts a supreme being as little more than a magician with attitude.

    I'm sorry perhaps I'm wrong to associate intelligence with this but I find it difficult not to. I could never cast a vote for a candidate who thinks like this.

    Ah, creating pre-degraded uranium, burying pre-aged fossils. God is such a kidder, that mischievous scamp!

    Although it strikes many of us as strange, one of the big appeals of fundamentalist religions to many people is that it frees them from making hard choices. If you decide to accept every word of a sacred text as inerrant, you don't have to agonize over which bits are true and which are false and which are parable and which are history.

    Most people, at the core, like there to be an authority that has made plans for everything. We generally don't look in depth at what those plans are, but we feel better knowing that someone's looking after things, whether it's that the FDA is inspecting our food or that the fire department has figured out which stations should respond to which addresses, or whatever else we have a vague sense someone else has taken care of. It's not a major stretch to apply that to existence as a whole. A large number of religious people are comforted by the idea that there is a purpose to their life, even if they don't understand what it is.

    Being the love child of a gay male Vulcan mating with a gay Englishman, I must offer this correction to your statement. The age of 4.4 billion (using the American nomenclature of billion), is 7333.33 times as old as the silly number she pulled out of some preachers ass.

    The mindset of such creatures is what bugs me most about true believers.
    I met again with a very closeted self-acknowledged gay man who is also quite religious. So many of the religious precepts are clever, little, self-deluding thought traps.
    Humans literally manifest of such foolish paradigms.
