But it’s not the Darwin theory of evolution, it’s the scientific theory of evolution. And there’s no reason not to simply refer to it... Read more »

Saudi king Abdullah and Wahhabi clerics equate “atheist thought” to terrorism

How do you rule over other human beings? How do you convince people that your wealth and their poverty is justified?

Bill O’Reilly is knowledgeable about many things and has a sharp sense of humor. But when it comes to capitalism and opportunity, he seems to think it’s still the 1950s.
