You can be skeptical and friendly at the same time.

When it comes to the “God-given potential” referred to in the Democratic platform, Matt Bors wonders which one they were talking about:
Hemant Mehta is the chair of Foundation Beyond Belief and a high school math teacher in the suburbs of Chicago. He began writing the Friendly Atheist blog in 2006. His latest book is called The Young Atheist's Survival Guide.
It’s the generic, god, the store brand god, the plain wrap god, the white label with the blue writing god. The fine print says, “Compare active ingredient, 250 mg of “god” to Yaweh, Jehova, Baal, Thor, Vishnu, Ra, Zeus, Kane,………..” (very long list)
As long as it’s invisible, inaudible, intangible, tasteless, odorless, and is exactly as inconsequential as it is reputed to be mighty, it’ll do.
I like to think that “God” here refers to Prometheus. I’m glad the Democrats are giving the Titans the recognition they deserve.
The god they hoped would appease the republicans.
Obviously they mean the god of islam as Obama is a muslim, a Kenyan muslim I hear.
Big buttery Jesus!!
I’m pretty sure you have to post the song link with that comment Scott. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gq01UYiMyHg
I was thinking Thor, because The Avengers did really well in theaters.
God bless America!
The Ganesha one was the best.
Ganesha is one of my favorite gods. His superpower is the removal of obstacles. Who doesn’t want things to work out more smoothly? I also like Thor for his awesome abs in his latest movie and Cthulhu for the whole “me first” aspect.
I’d have loved it if they lower-cased “god.” Because, you know, “ceremonial deism” and all.
