    The number of theists in the United States is still above 70%. The time when atheists can relax is not indicated by the presidency, but rather by the belief of the people. Well, at least in democratic nations.

    Ah yes, Sunday mornings, when I get to use my ‘secret zipcode’ game cheat to unlock the magic chamber holding all the best of the atheist’s special armor.

    If you subscribe to the podcast you don’t need the zipcode, and you also avoid increasing the peak demand on the radio station’s server(s).

    Given the rest of his appointments, I am having trouble taking seriously the idea that the ‘science’ team is anything MORE than a sop to the lib/prog/enviro crowd, and that they’ll be isolated, and neutered, enough so that they–especially the academics–will walk away from the whole thing in frustration within a year or so.

    Great radio program today. The Council for Secular Humanism is not delusional about the change of administration in Washington. Church and State seperation issues apply to all of us.

    Klobuchar proposed – and got a 500,000 earmark for this program. Barack proposed an earmark for this program also.
