    I hear ya Clyde.

    But be realistic. The same can be said for God. LOTS of people receive money from the government for "God related stuff" and if there is anything we don't know, it is that God exists. [dunno]

    I didn't know we funded this research. Could you provide some links/information in the entity like NASA Or the LOTs of people which we taxpayer fund for the God research?

    Just curious in my part.

    Hundreds, no make that thousands of funded researchers.


    Small sampling, quick search, note the government funded institutions offering top-end degrees, government funded institutions doing research. Most any weekend spent watching History or Discovery will net at least one show featuring a researcher doing "God research" on the tax payer's tab.

    . . maybe it is because I work in the state university system, but it is certainly common knowledge (here) that HUGE government grants are available for this type of research.

    I am for cutting all funding from the government towards all types of research on either side plus all the other crap we don't need to research to save the spotted owl, etc, lowering taxes by the corresponding amount so people can donate their own money so we can research what we want. I wouldn't spend my money to research either side. This would lower the burden on the public institutions from having to hire so many people who become de-facto public nipple suckers and government employees through all the grant funding !

    I feel quite sure the Aliensare among us, and they know as long as we keep 'electing' dumba$$ dweebs like the kenyan, we will NEVER have a viable space travel program. [dunno]

    I sometimes wonder if HE was even 'of this Earth'.......

    That's one of the biggest problems with 'science' today - to get funding they must kowtow to what the Goobermint wants to show the People - so 'global warming' studies are good, and get mega-grants - the politicians can use the 'data' to con the mugs (you and me) out of votes and money, and get their over-controlling legislation passed - Cap & Scam is a perfect example.
    These ridiculous "cow fart" and other 'studies' are just "Bread & Circusses" to keep us occupied while they loot our savings and our children's futures.

    REAL science goes unfunded and falls by the wayside. Haven't been many true earth-shattering discoveries since the FedGov got involved in science. NASA is all but dead - no manned space travel in America's future - not for the next few decades anyways. No 'other worlds' to explore and use their resources.
    When the lords of old had too many people squalling and using the local resources, they sent them out in ships to other lands - discover, conquer and colonize. We pack them into Section Eight housing and hand them Welfare checks......... [dunno]
