The Scottish Play and Science Vs. Religion.Hail, king! for so thou art: behold, where stands
The usurper's cursed head: the time is free:
I see thee compass'd with thy kingdom's pearl,
That speak my salutation in their minds;
Whose voices I desire aloud with mine:
Hail, King of Scotland!
Why can't more people be like this guy? Professor Richard Dawkins of Oxford University sticks it to the Creationists.
Where are more reasonable voices like the good Professor here, when it comes to this Evolution versus "Intelligent Design" debate? And why is it a debate to begin with? Why can't I think one thing, and you think another, and we'll agree to disagree. Teach evolution as the "THEORY" that it is in schools, and keep religion out of public schools, as was intended. If you want to teach your kids Creationism, send them to a Christian school, and don't force it down the throats of others, while keeping potential scientific truth from them.
The religious right has a tendency to annoy me, though I don't take issue with scientific community. I wonder why... Thanks Professor.
Star Wars was awesome. Better than I could have hoped for, it has already set box office records, and most people I've talked to really liked it. So much better than the last two, and finally a Star Wars movie on par with the originals.
On to other matters. Our Scottish Play dress rehearsal was tonight... Quite hectic, but all-in-all I think the show should go well. Again, for those not aware, it is Friday May 27th at 7 pm, May 28th at 2 pm, and May 29th at 2 pm, at Kew Gardens Park in the Beach... A few blocks from Queen Street E and Woodbine Ave. I look forward to a good crowd.
Should be a busy day tomorrow, job interview in the morning, play in the evening and later that night a birthday/going away party for the lovely Christie
. Alas the girl is leaving our fair town, off to bigger and better things in New York City.
Argghh... Full plate for the weekend.
Now for the most random thing I've seen all week... And that's saying something : METAL GEAR SOLID 3 : CRAB BATTLE!!!
