If you look at the universe and study the universe, what you find is that there is no evidence that we need anything other than the laws of physics and the other laws of science to explain everything we see. There's absolutely no evidence that we need any supernatural hand of god. -- Lawrence Krauss, World-Renowned Physicist
There is probably no other notion in any field of science that has been as extensively tested and as thoroughly corroborated as the evolutionary origin of living organisms. -- Encyclopedia Britannica
FAITH. No one word personifies the absolute worst and most wicked properties of religion better than that. Faith is mind-rot. It’s the poison that destroys critical thinking, undermines evidence, and leads people into lives dedicated to absurdity. It’s a parasite regarded as a virtue. -- PZ Myers
Religion is the antithesis of science, an anesthetic for the mind that disables critical thought and encourages the acceptance of inanity as fact, and wishful thinking as evidence. -- PZ Myers

"Certain actions -- a government’s reported use of chemical weapons on its own women and children -- are beyond the pale of a civilized world."

Democrat or Republican or Independent, all Americans (including our wimps) should be 100% with our president on this one. America, the most powerful country in the world, has a moral obligation to punish dictator assholes who have the nerve to murder hundreds of children with poisonous gas. We can not tolerate these subhumans who would try to get away with anything if America did nothing.

Fuck off and die Bashar al-Assad. We should make your head the primary target for our missiles. And if the Americans don't kill you somebody else will. You are doomed you fucking asshole. The 21st century will never tolerate you scum and you know it.

Somebody from Chicago wrote a letter to the editor of the New York Times and he had some nice things to say about President Obama which I totally agree with.

Re “President Pulls Lawmakers Into Box He Made” (White House Memo, front page, Sept. 1):

President Obama’s decision to seek Congressional approval of an attack on Syria is masterful. It forces Congress to put up or shut up (incidentally giving credit to the Constitution, which gives that body the power to make war). It forces the Syrian government to stay on its toes, never certain when the missiles might arrive, creating tension that enables behind-the-scenes pressure on its leader to resign.

It forces a public debate that could allow or shame other countries into joining the effort to hold the Syrian government responsible. It asserts that certain actions — a government’s reported use of chemical weapons on its own women and children — are beyond the pale of a civilized world, and bad actors must be accountable.

Mr. Obama shows his skill, character, fortitude, patience, wisdom and conscience by this decision. If only a similar process had been undertaken by President Bush before he invaded Iraq.
