The topic is not exactly about the man's faith; the thread and my point is about someone on the very extremes of religion, being in a policy making position over our own scientific organizations. Christian, Hindu, Muslim, Jew... none of it really matters to me; it does matter to me when: A.) You are in a position to make policy B.) Your beliefs are so far fanatical that you fore-go the scientific method and ignore most of the basic principles of science, in the name of religion. If you have never talked with a young earth creationist, you should attempt to have a talk with them about the physical world. They ignore the understood principles or everything from meteorology to geology to biology to physics. To answer your question, yes; I am more comfortable with what ever Obama's beliefs are (Is he a Muslim or is a Christian... I thought we are supposed to be mad about Rev. Wright ) because he is far less on the fringe than young earth creationists Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
