COLBY, Kan. - Some may think I apparently never have had time for substance. But, even as far back as when I was a little fellow subject to Dad's intolerance of my opinions, I have always kind of felt like the world was entitled to my opinions, right or wrong.
Republicans and the religious right: " see the world in black/white, right/wrong, either/or, yes/no, my-way-or-the-highway terms."
That isn't to say the Dems are always tolerant and open, but in today's society the liberal left are far more tolerant of differing opinions and acceptance of the equal worth of their fellowman, irregardless of their religious or sexual orientation and opinions.
Historically, the established Christian church has lost nearly every argument with science. That doesn't negate the Bible's authority. It only proves that man sometimes ignores his finite knowledge and assumes he knows what, when, and how God created and thinks 'having dominion' means he has infinite knowledge.
Man is the most guilty of all the warm blooded creatures of God's creation, when it comes to 'fowling' his own nest. We can excuse the 'dumb' animals, they don't have the intellect to reason beyond natural instinct of survival. It appears that God created man, whenever in his creation of what we know as the world today, with the ability to remember and record history and to plan ahead and design for the future.
I hear my tractor and corn planter calling! Gotta run!
