Last week I talked about the "forced conversions" that will soon be taking place in California's schools – not just public, mind you, but private and religious, too.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed a new law that effectively tosses out all sexual moral conduct codes at colleges, private and Christian schools, daycare centers and other so-called educational facilities across the state. In effect, we have a situation in the Golden State in which a form of paganism has become the de facto official religion of the state.

I called this the end of religious freedom in California – and I do not think I overstate the case.

But, in a less obvious way, we see a similar enforcement of state religion in most schools in most states. I refer to the teaching of evolution as scientific fact.

Now, you may believe in evolution. You may believe in the miracle of abiogenesis – the idea that life sprang spontaneously from non-life by random chance. You may believe sincerely in those ideas. You may even believe scientific facts back up your notions.

But, let's be honest. When you get right down to the bottom line, you can't prove your ideas any more than the creationist can. You look at the world and you find facts that you believe seem to bolster your case. The creationist does the same and finds facts that seem to bolster his case.

Ultimately, in both cases, it comes down to belief. It comes down to faith. It comes down to religion.

They were a great team, til the New York Heathens kicked their asses last year.  :angry:

That is very likely the first time in history that 'Bakersfield' and 'Bodhisattva' have ever been used in the same sentence.

A brief dose of reality here: There *really is* a current major league baseball player named Angel Pagan.

It's too bad he wasn't on the Indians when they had both Milton Bradley and Coco Crisp.

Coco is a nickname, and those don't count. I said so.
