Text (don’t know if it is a Savage quote): No one is in charge. And honestly, that’s even cooler. The idea of an ordered and elegant universe is a lovely one. One worth clinging to.

The inverse square law of gravitation is amazing. Fractals, the theory of relativity, the genome: these are magnificently beautiful constructions.

Gibbs became pregnant aged 15, but lost the baby in December 2006 in a stillbirth when she was 36 weeks into the pregnancy.

If households budgeted like the GOP:
We’re under-water with the house, behind on the bills…
That’s it! No more abortion!
Do not send money to Christian charities for Japan earthquake. We need blankets and food, not boxes of bibles and fundamentalist propaganda.
… and that, children, is why the secularization of America is directly responsible for the majority of our societal problems. We’ve turned our back on god and now we’re paying for it.
What about Norway?
Well it’s a little confusing because according to their latest census, over 70% of the Norwegian Population is atheist. However, the golbal peace index rates Norway as the most peaceful nation in the world. They have the second highest GDP per capita in the world, an unemployment rate below 2 percent, the average hourly wages among the world’s highest. Also, Norway is ranked first int heworld in life expectancy, literacy, education and standard of living. All while being arguable the most atheist nation on the planet.
Well, thank you for the information, Russell. I hope they speak Norwegian in Hell!
