    I'm projecting nothing.

    The screed is a variation on Pascal's Wager, proffered by someone who admits that it's too complex an issue for him to tackle...Yet, somehow or another, not so complex that he can hold forth at length about how something needs to be done about it.

    Much more the "crazy" than the "right," IMO, but it is getting more and more difficult to discern the difference,...unfortunately.

    Really TM? You like genetically modified food? Why not?

    What do you think about homeopathic remedies? You like them?

    How about Irradiating your food to make it safer?? OK with you?

    Think Embryonic Stem Cells are better for R&D than scavenged versions?

    Which you more afraid of --- Global Warming or Nuclear Power? ((Nuclear would largely solve GW))

    You believe forests should be unmanaged and left in their natural states?

    THe right has no lock on being anti-science.

    Why am I not surprised by this ultra-elitist arrogance ????

    ""our limitations and potential are regulated by the capabilities of the least among us. """

    All hail Trakar.. :udaman:

    How could we follow anyone without a giant ego and no humility??

    It is hardly arrogance to dismiss the maudling mouthings of fools,

    Am I the only one wondering what lies beyond that comma?
