    If God had government, she’d really have screwed things up !
    Although, to quote Kenneth Patchen:
    Elephants and Eskimos are the sort of inventions
    Makes me think
    God had two or three kids of his own

    Human government is what is screwed up. If God were running it instead of currently giving us our wish to run things ourselves He would run it perfectly. Environmental wackos have taken over the EPA making it less than useless.

    If the right wing had their way, they would have unfettered factories and no ecology rules. We would have the same air pollution China is facing.

    re: radish

    I wrote the following for National Wave of Foolishness. (I note in passing I used to work for a regulatory agency, NMFS, that was concerned with endangered, threatened, and sensitive species. Large portions of the BAs, EAs, EISs, etc. in the early 2000s in northern Calfornia were written by me. Conservation was a Republican show until the 1980s when environmentalism began destroying things. Burning down the forests en masse is the environmentalist’s legacy)

    “Anyone remember that Nixon signed many of the groundbreaking conservation laws that are largely responsible for our clean water, air and soil?

    Nixon signed NEPA, CAA, CWA and ESA. The National Environmental Policy Act, the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act and the Endangered Species Act. And others.

    Today’s revisionist historians completely ignore that.

    Nixon was the modern conservation president. Contrast that with Carter, who started the nuclear waste problem by halting the reprocessing of nuclear waste. And what about ending sustained yield from our national forests in 1976?

    There’s an example of “intentions” and hype versus actual actions for you. Nixon did practical things to conserve natural resources and clean things up. The EPA was proposed by Nixon and until the 2000s, it mostly did its job— improve and protect air, soil and water quality. (Today, of course, the EPA serves little useful purpose, apparently seeing its mission as being to destroy all United States economic activity and food production and to help bring World Socialism under lies such as global warming. The falsity of “ozone depletion” should have been a clue, but one is never supposed to judge a Left-wing group’s actions but only their “intentions,” right? Barf…)"

    The Padre should have said – God coul’ve created everything in 6 seconds – but He chose to do it in 6 days as a pattern of man’s work and rest periods.

    @Rad-ish

    Really now? There is a page on this website where political comments are posted…the editorial cartoons page (or those comics that have a distinct political view In their strip-Doonesbury comes to mind). Many readers keep their political views to themselves and know that there is are many places to post them. I keep mum on my political opinions in posts. My advice to you is to steady your knees, for your knee-jerk reaction is revealing being more a jerk than having good reflexes.

    Because God created time, then God is out side of time.
    So one thousand years or one billion, it’s all the same to God.

    Why would God create time? He has no use for it. As you said, “God is outside of time.” Man created time to measure and keep track of events.

    Amen! Or one second or one billion years, it is all the same. Time means nothing to God. Time (keeping) is a creation of man.

    If China and Russia are extreme left, then Einstein was right, space is curved, and these countries are so far to the left that they’re coming around from the extreme right side. The fact that they called themselves “socialist” or even “communist” doesn’t mean they were either of these things. Russia and China are much closer to the classic fascist dictatorship, or even a non-hereditary version of monarchy, in which a small, self-perpetuating elite runs the country by fiat. Economically, China is closer to Ayn Rand’s ideal of unregulated, cut-throat monopoly capitalism that the US or Europe have been in centuries. The old USSR was best described as a form of state capitalism, in which the Party owned the factories and the markets (the fact that they even had markets—even if those markets often had no goods to sell—means they were pursuing a capitalist model, not a communist one).


    FWIW, I doubt communism could actually ever work outside a tight-knit religious community (see the book of Acts, for instance). Bit of a problem for ol’ Karl there, as he hated religion…
