Is This How Gun Control Works?

Posted by iwanttofitin on April 19, 2007

Yesterday a British man (I’m assuming because there is no name) left the following comment on my A Perfect World: Gun Control post.

As a “Brit” I dread the day that Britain moves any way towards the wholesale owning of guns as reflected in American society. Britain is not perfect by any means but gun crime in Britain is relatively rare in comparison to America. I believe this is due to the residual “Wild West” mentality of a large section of American society and the misquoted “right to bear arms” which should apply to society as a whole, not every individual. The gun lobby has a lot to answer for.

I responded a few times with some statistics and through that research have come up with many more statistics that I’d like to share. Remember as you read this that Britain outlawed all guns in 1997. Even the Olympic shooting team isn’t allowed to practice there. NO ONE is ALLOWED to own a gun. Read the rest of this entry »

It was all supposedly Indian land anyway so we really took it over from Indians. Anyway, no one should really care anyway. We’ve got this country that has been isolated.

Only Two Choices

Posted by iwanttofitin on March 1, 2007

I thought I’d share this nifty little quote from Nobel Prize winner George Wald:

There are only two possible explanations as to how life arose. Spontaneous generation arising to evolution or a supernatural creative act of God…. There is no other possibility. Spontaneous generation was scientifically disproved 120 years ago by Louis Pasteur and others, but that just leaves us with only one other possibility. . . that life came as a supernatural act of creation by God, but I can’t accept that philosophy because I do not want to believe in God. Therefore I choose to believe in that which I know is scientifically impossible, spontaneous generation leading to evolution.
