Who is trying to assert authority over you???

The discussion is about scientists hiding their beliefs because of perceived hostility towards those beliefs. You appear to have plenty of that hostility.

Groups with deep beliefs always push for laws to be interpreted in line with those values. This is true if you're the ACLU trying to get a cross removed from public land (or formerly public land) because you feel it is akin to state-sponsored religion or if you're a church group arguing that freedom of religion is not freedom from religion. Both are acting in a way consistent with their beliefs and ostensibly working for the greater good. People can disagree completely and still respect one another.

You seem to be in the angry minority who sneaks in during the night to tear the cross down.

Are you angry that people believe in God when you do not? Are you angry because you think God doesn't believe in you? Or are you one of those types who just like to froth at the mouth while tilting at windmills?

Grow up.


Submission + - UFO witnessed at O'Hare International Airport

An anonymous reader writes: A UFO had been witnessed yesterday by dozens of employees at the O'Hare International Airport in Chicago, Illinois, the Chicago Tribune reports. From the article: "A flying saucerlike object hovered low over O'Hare International Airport for several minutes before bolting through thick clouds with such intense energy that it left an eerie hole in overcast skies, said some United Airlines employees who observed the phenomenon." The sighting occurred during daylight at 4:30 p.m. local time, just before sunset. "All the witnesses said the object was dark gray and well defined in the overcast skies. They said the craft, estimated by different accounts to be 6 feet to 24 feet in diameter, did not display any lights."
