Yeah, I guess fear makes us do and say irrational things. After I heard the cougar in the back yard, .
I think the cougar sounds kind of neat..then again i have never had one in my backyard
I hate regurgitating 9/11 stuff but....
I saw the second plane hit.
I lost friends in tower 1
I still cry when i walk by the 10th street firehouse - and I won't walk by it.
even with all that.... when bush got on the air and said 'they hate our freedoms' i knew something was very very very wrong. But that lie now means people 1000 miles away from ground zero are seeing their friends, their sons, their neigbors come home in body bags.
In short, if Dawkins is freaked out he should take hard, honest looks at the whys...and perhaps he's finding comfort in his religion of reason and evolution (reason will save us from 9-11s) but I can't respect someone who is parading around as some champion of truth and avoiding some unpleasant ones.
As I mentioned about these mega churches like haggards, or where haggard used to work
..... it seems like the people are looking for a lot more than stories about creation - family and community structure - and just about everything else the secular humanists tried to destroy in the sixties. (as if to emphasize this just see how popular john lennon's 'imagine' song is with dawkins and secular humanists - despite the fact its well, a crappy song)
I think it is sad that in america christianity seems to have been polarized between fundemenalists and 'anything goes' ....maybe Polkinghorne can start a denomination
