Reason vs. Zealotry

"All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others." - Douglas Adams

I went to Las Vegas this weekend. The overwhelming wave of mass-stupidity was awe inspiring and not a little nauseating.

Honestly I finally felt like I was backed into a corner. After 8 years of Neocons waging their Culture War I finally snapped. Maybe it was just my elation after discovering the YouTube phenomenon that is Thunderf00t that started the first pebbles rolling - but the unrelenting intellectual maggotry that I endured in the last 96 hours turned them into an avalanche.

I will now share 2 video clips that in my opinion sum up my ideological position to a great degree:

The first is a clip of Barack Obama in 2006. Keep in mind that I disagree a great deal with President Obama's positions on many issues. Furthermore we do not adhere to the same belief system. That is not the point. This is a question of comportment and demeanor.

The second clip is the last in a 10 part series - but I think it stands very well on it's own. It rationally disputes the concepts of Creationism and Intelligent Design in a simple, logical and complete way.

Love this -- absolutely hilarious! The narrator is very good; I hear these "creationist" arguments daily. It's almost impossible to refute someone who's ears and mind are closed.
