It's based on scientific method - graphs of climate change vs. number of pirates. (See FSM for more info).
Remarkable language C#. Beautiful plumage, ain't it?

Will they go back to sleep volenterily? It might be so boring to stay awake that they will. OTOH some might abuse their awakened advantage over the others. Hey, we're only human...
Who is this 'We' you speak of? Lets see... The Ukraine needs a US base in the Ukraine... no...
'OR' would suffice.
Well, it certainly aint stuff that matters.
I find it hard to believe there are creationists. I mean, if god created perfect brains for them, why don't they use them?
Fly Airbus? Good question. White Christians in Europe stopped having children. They leave the fertility stuff to the Muslim immigrants.
So, a generation from now, Hillboingy or Air-Quaeda? No thanks.
I think I'll go with the Chinese. (I'm surprised they haven't taken over the aircraft industry yet)
Actually, if I understand correctly, Christianity is probably the only religion that doesn't claim their bible was written by god. The Jesus stories were written by mortals, I haven't heard any other claim.
As for creation stories, Christianity gets those from the Jewish bible which it adopted, including the Jewish "calculation" for the age of the world.
I agree with you that arguing with creationists is futile. The argument isn't about who's right and who's not.It's not about trying to find fault with the natural law of evolution or with this or that bible or system of belief.
The issue is about politicians trying to get more power for themselves and more money in their bank along the way. Abusing the faith of gullible ignorant masses is a simple way of getting just that.
I'm not sure this is a job for congress. I believe this is a problem that creationists should be working on. If they can pull this one off they will demonstrate their superiority over that satanical ideology called science.
oh, and Douglas Adams had a much simpler answer to the ultimate question of life the universe and everything. (What was the question again?)
mod 'spoiler alert'
the documentation IBM prepares for Watson?
If it's like other products, this should be some considerable task worthy of a system no less than Watson itself.
Between those piles of stones and the abacus came the Antikythera a couple of millenia ago.
Not exactly a general purpose calculator or computer, but still pretty amazing piece of technology for the time.
I read somewhere that 'Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.'
That mayst been some olden goings on tither.
Seems like they've bettered themselves since.
