. its not the logical conclusion i come to. for some people apparently it is. i think alot of people are wrong about alot of things and this is one of them
and they think i am wrong
well said, and I totally respect your views.
I am with the non-theists 100% though in agreeing that religion is a bad thing though. It should not dictate political policy, school teachings, etc. It's place should be in the home among families. It should not be starting wars, oppressing people for differing views, etc. Living in the Bible belt is rough, because so many of these people want to ignorantly push their beliefs on everyone else in forceful ways. Not my thing.
thanks for the video by the way, finally got to watch it. Pretty interesting stuff. Kind of mind blowing that the fusion of just two chromosomes can change the outcome of a species to that degree.
