Islam on Campus

For all those who think islam is "just another religion", think about how it influences its adherents. This survey has just been completed in England, surveying 1400 British students (not poverty stricken):

Here's just a little sample:

"Killing in the name of religion:

- Just under a third of Muslim students polled (32%) said killing in the name of religion can be justified – the majority of these said killing could be justified if the religion was under attack, and 4% of all respondents supported killing in order to promote and preserve that religion.

- 60% of active members of campus Islamic societies said killing in the name of religion can be justified. By contrast, only 2% of non-Muslims agreed."

I wonder if the liberals will ever WAKE UP!

"Every one who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of nature--a spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in the face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble. In this way the pursuit of science leads to a religious feeling of a special sort." ~ Albert Einstein

My dogs have trained ME!

This is an old picture... See how small I am? Hee, hee! Seriously, I realized this morning that my dogs have trained ME! Every morning I have 2 cups of tea and one cup of coffee. When I get the milk out of the fridge to put in the coffee, they come and sit and stare at me. I then ask them if they would like some milk and they jump up and down like jumping jacks. I never noticed (until today) that they only do this when I have coffee, not tea (and I add milk to my tea also). How funny is that?

Now I'm wondering what other things they've trained me to do.....

Angelina Jolie

She sure isn't your typical Hollywood liberal! She's quoted in "America's 1st Freedom" as saying "Brad and I are not against having a gun in the house, and we do have one. And yes, I'd be able to use it if I had to. If anybody comes into my home and tries to hurt my kids, I've no problem shooting them." Amen sister!

Milky Way over Death Valley

Here's an interesting website which talks about the issues with outdoor lighting and the concept of a "dark sky". I had never heard of such a thing...
