Dinosaur hunters needed

Really, I wouldn't kid about such a thing. For the last few years one group of rather interesting people have been looking for donations and volunteers to go dinosaur hunting, looking specifically for a breeding pair of pterosaurs. (Yes, I know that a pterosaur is technically not a dinosaur but they... Sign in to see full entry.

Where is the line drawn?

After being born and raised in a democracy populated by an eclectic mix of immigrants and generations of their offspring, all of us, every last person, has at some juncture been conditioned to at least pay lip service to the notion of respecting the beliefs of others. That's a nice notion, endorsed... Sign in to see full entry.

The scariest answers I remember receiving to a question

Not too long ago on this very site I posed a question that was not only answered by a handful of our resident evangelists at the time but they managed to shock me with their answers. The question was: "Are you aware that the Jewish people do not recognize Jesus Christ as either the Messiah or the... Sign in to see full entry.

Are you able to overcome your prejudices?

The time when a candidate running for national office who professes a faith other than one of the Christian religions is inevitable. One need only look at immigration patterns and the rapid growth of any number of ethnic communities in North America to come to this conclusion. We are already seeing... Sign in to see full entry.

The best entertainment around

From my perspective as a non US citizen, the run up to the US presidential election is by far the best reality comedy show on TV today. The process of determining who will win the party nominations is always the most entertaining part, I simply cannot believe some of the outlandish things that so... Sign in to see full entry.

Have things changed amongst voters today?

Back in 2007 during the run up to the last US presidential election, pollsters attempted to measure the general sentiment amongst voters. A number of the questions asked had been presented in surveys to the the US population since 1937. A notable progression has transpired since then in terms of the... Sign in to see full entry.

Change we can believe in?

After about 40 years of voting, I cannot remember the last time I voted for what I considered to be the best man or woman for the job. As far back as I can remember, I have voted for the lesser evil amongst a handful of sometimes pathetic choices. Be it federal, provincial (state) or local... Sign in to see full entry.

A report on Gay Marriage

I find it hard to believe that the issue of same sex marriage is still being hotly debated in this day and age. I have yet to hear a convincing argument as to why marriage should not be an inalienable human right for all citizens. What we have all been treated to over the past number of years is a...

Blogit has become a seniors chat room

The title of this post is simply an honest observation, things have changed dramatically over the last 2 and 1/2 years since I've been here. Maybe it is for the better, the general tone of comments left on the posts of others is much friendlier than in the bygone era. There is however one glaring... Sign in to see full entry.

The reality of not separating Church and State

The subject of the separation of church and state, though nearly bludgeoned to death more times than I can count over the years here on Blogit, is poised to re-surface once again. This time around, the recycling back into public consciousness of what should have been put to rest so many years ago,... Sign in to see full entry.
