Bush Announces Mortgage Hotline - Then Promptly Gives WRONG NUMBER
...As he announced his plan to ease the mortgage
crisis for consumers, President Bush accidentally gave out the wrong phone
number for the new “Hope Now Hotline” set up by his administration.
Anyone who dialed 1-800-995-HOPE did not reach the mortgage hotline but instead contacted the Freedom Christian Academy — a Texas-based group that provides Christian education home schooling material.

Subject: Natural Laws
If God(sic) created the
universe then he had to have created the natural laws that make it work: From
1+1=2 all the way to E=mc(squared.)
And the laws of thermodynamics, the law of gravity...all of them easily learned.
For example, how long does it take you to learn that Energy equals Mass times the Square of the Speed of Light? Five minutes?
So if God wrote the bible why do we need to spend our entire lives going to Bible School every Monday night to try to get it figured out?
Well, we know that people wrote a bunch of stories around the time of Jesus and Emperor Constantine (some three hundred years after Jesus died) picked out the ones that would help the emperor rule the masses. During those three hundred years there was no "New Testament."
Anyway, all of that confusion in the Bible can be boiled down to nine little words: "Treat others as you would like to be treated."
And that, just like the natural laws, can be learned in five minutes, even though very few people pay much attention to it.
Thanks for writing, Dick.
Maybe the reason why the religious right believes the earth is only 5,000 years old -- because they spend more time studying the Bible instead of studying science.
