(supposedly) free capitalist society.
Exactly. You may not be communistic, nor want it, but by building a foundation of socialism, you put the foundation of a future corrupt atheist to
enact a communist nation. The same, for that matter, goes to Christians. When they lay the brick work for a conservative nation, they lay the
foundation of a theocracy. You see this in both ways. The only way to counter it is to keep both people in charge. And because one is always trying to
take over the other, the US has it's mini revolutions. So far, the major ones have been The Great awakening(conservative), the ACTUAL revolution
(liberal), the Western expansion (could be seen either way by how they treated people in their way), the civil war (liberal and moderate
conservative), Spanish American War (conservative), WW1 (conservative). Etc, etc. Up to such thing as the 70's era, and onto today's
Yea, I'm kind of going no where with this, but my point is that total domination by either side is bad.
This returns us to the original anti-atheist conspiracy topic. These days it is the first time in a long time where BOTH sides are attempting a take
over event, which will lead to anger at both sides, and probably civil war. To go deeper into this, it is becoming a 4 way street, rather then a 2 way
one. Now you also have the false conservatives (Bush, Etc) and the false liberals ( pretty much everyone in the senate). Each side hates the other
sides equally. Except maybe the Bushies and the senate, who have an unhappy friendship.
Now, that mindless rambling went no where, yes, but it just goes with what I was saying.
Looking back at what I said about atheist-Christian middle grounds, would not that stop all this mindless rambling?
This is also to you, Equinox99
I understand science and Christianity can not go hand and hand, because of creationism and evolution. I say let the people decide what they want, and
no one else. If you want your kids to learn about creationism, send them to a Catholic school. If you want your kid to learn about evolution then send
them to a public school.
Oh, and as for the whole creationism, evolution thing. Meh, in about 20 years they say they'll have a time machine, or so says Israel.
