He's entitled to believe in whatever he wants. Creationism, crystal healing, we didn't land on the moon, the earth is flat, floride is a communist plot, holistic medicine.

And I'm all in favour of teaching creationism in school, as long as it's taught from a scientific POV.

He has a lot of good ideas, but every time he comes up with something good, he counters it with something that borders on bat shit crazy.

i read donutz post as a tounge in cheek way of saying if they taught creation in school scientifically it would be debunked. maybe i'm wrong.

i don't really like ron paul any more then any of the other liars because i don't think he could or would do the things he promises, but i don't think he really even believes this shit he's saying in that clip - he just knows to have any chance at all he has to pander to the religious right.

No, you got it right. Now what I'm about to say might work better in Canada where the teacher's union, er, "federation" is strong enough to tell the government to take a hike, but... When creationists imagine their superstition being taught in school, they probably visualize it being taught by someone like themselves or their pastor. In fact if it's to be taught in science class, it should be taught by the science teacher. Who is more likely to be like Richard Dawkins than like Jerry Falwell. I think that if it could be taught in science class where the usual creotard tripe wouldn't have any traction, that would do more to bury creationism than anything else we could possibly do.

Oh, and since we live in a pluralistic multicultural society, you'd also have to teach Islamic creationism, Hindu creationism, Vedic, every variation on First Nations, Australian aboriginal Dream Time, and whatever else you can think of. And give them equal time. Then your science teacher would explain that each and every one of these creationist beliefs has the same amount of evidence supporting it (i.e. "none"). Then the science teacher would explain the concept of evidence-based theories and the concept of modifying your beliefs to fit observed facts, instead of the other way around. And since one of the principles of science is to closely examine the evidence for validity, the science teacher would be allowed to (in fact obligated to) take a close look at the validity of the bible as a basis for a world-view. I've already gone over in other threads just how poorly the bible stands up to an objective analysis.

Everyone is entitled to their opinions - but not everyone is allowed to shape national policy based on those opinions. Nor should they.

a) has been on the ticket for years
and
b) really has been consistent...in what he's selling...

Yea hes a nut case and lets be fair his supporters (none on here btw) have always been considered nuts as well....

But are they really nuts??? are they?? Because again look inside yourselves waayyyy beyond your logical thoughts....

If we as Americans could actually think as we do deep down inside he is your most logical choice! right now...

You already know he is a nut, so your beyond that part, the others like palin etc...were still trying to fully figure them out...

But this guy.....no secrets....complete lunatic...from the surface...from what media wants you to believe...

If you understand what I mean...
Yup, I'm never smoking pot again.

Seems to me that nobody worth a damn wants the job of president of the United States.

Our country is in an economic spiral, mostly because our society loves to take advantage of things and exploit the system.

Big business is the best at this.... They're supposedly supporting our country, although they're also killing the country. This crap of them being able to cut employees and have 1 person do the work of 2 is a HUGE problem. It creates such a ripple affect when that person can't find a job and is now being supported by the government.

Who in their right mind, other than Obama, would want the job of fixing this shit storm? In my eyes Obama is the only bet.....

As many awesome things Ron Paul has to say, he's got just as many crazy things going on... He's a loose cannon.
