Looner, NYTimes has some good charts that may help you:

I hope you're right! Obama gave his last rally tonight and Romney will keep campaigning tomorrow.

About 20 seconds actually. Why should I waste my time spoon feeding you?

When you say that evolution is officially a theory, you are ignoring what that article also states: Evolution is a fact and the theory of evolution attempts to explain the mechanisms of evolution.

Parallel to your argument is the statement "Gravity is officially a theory.'' But gravity is a fact and the Theory of Gravity attempts to explain the mechanisms of gravity.

I think your conclusion that evolution is officially a theory is wrong. The Theory of Evolution is officially a theory, not evolution itself.
So we know it exists we just can't verify the details of how or why it works. I don't even know why we're arguing about this since I've already stated it's by far the most plausible theory and should be taught in schools.

If that were true you would have posted it. You're already wasting your time obsessing over evolution "fact vs theory" in a politics thread, without posting a single link to back up your claims. You obviously like to spend more time trolling than proving your point.

I don't know how! But I just scheduled a private tutorial with Apple. So watch out next week.

OK, 20 seconds was not accurate. To Google ''George Bush creationism'' takes me about 5 seconds and there you have ONE Republican who said it should be taught in school. Just what you asked someone to do for you.

We are all suffering from the Abigail syndrome. Someone will get elected and the US will stay the same.

I think we're actually pretty clear on these points. I don't know if you've read "The Greatest Show on Earth" by Richard Dawkins, he explain evolution quite well there. Really, there aren't many details that need explaining. We have even proof of evolution in our lifetime: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E._coli...ion_experiment

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Dawkins shrilling for Obama has really revealed a lot about himself.

What would you expect him to do? The Tea Party would burn him at the stake for heresy.

Re: US presidential election 2012

Acknowledge that Obama is nothing more a scripted robot and the only thing that separates Republicans from Democrats is who they pander to.

Re: US presidential election 2012

Exactly. Voting only supports a corrupt system. Like doing jury duty.

BTW, Obama is the Don King of politics. He creates racist white boogeymen to ensnare black people and then soaks them while giving back crumbs

Re: US presidential election 2012

To encourage people not to vote. Voting is supporting a corrupt, thoroughly fixed system.

Romney is a slightly more likeable John Kerry. How anyone could bring themselves to vote for him is behind me.

Anyone voting for Obama should remember what the Democrats did/do to people like Ralph Nader. People like Dawkins should know better.

It's Obama's brainless media-controlled sheep vs. Romney's flat-earthers, a truly sad commentary on America. I don't know who's reelection will be sadder. Bush's or Obama's.

Re: US presidential election 2012

Is that one example? There hundreds documented with the reverse in Ohio and NC.

Obama is going to win, but everyone will say corruption both ways.

Democrats have a long history of somehow winning close states or finding ballots when they have to. See Minnesota.

Re: US presidential election 2012

I have absolutely no faith in the American voting public after they re elected Bush.

Obama better win. My god Romney is an absolute moron.

Edit: I realise our prime minister is absolute cock too.
