Response to mr blur (Original post)

20. There seems to be a number of people on this thread who don't like what Penn had to say...

that said it would appear that the religious types on this thread got their panties in a wad. For those who don't like Penn for his libertarian views this video had nothing to do with libertarianism but everything to do his religious views.

I may not agree with him totally on what he said but he did make some interesting points. An open mind would be of some benifit to some on this thread. I do believe he is na´ve when it comes to the religious right, or for the religious in general. The relgious rightwingers are bat shit crazy because I think they truly believe what they say. I see and hear these people all the time, they are my neighbors.

As far as I am concerned anyone who wants to believe in something based on faith has that right but I am going discount their opinions. Faith is the belief of something without evidence. That goes agianst my scientific training and what I would consider common sense as I would define it (my opinion only so please no personal attacks)!
