It is no coincidence that the Myth Busters guys are atheists...After all, they bust myths for a living...Why not start with the biggest myth of them all?
And how can the most mistrusted group be the only one that actually wants to see proof of something before they believe and follow it?? Shouldn't atheists be the ones mistrusting religious people?? I mean, they are the ones who will believe anything written in a religious book and willing to fly planes into buildings and shoot up Summer camps because they think that's what an invisible man in the sky wants them to do.
It's just a shame that psychology doesn't predate religion...The first religious people who though magic men in the sky were talking to them would have been able to receive the help they needed and we could have nipped this shit in the bud.
PS: Ha! I just realized I actually know a gay, Mexican, Jew and he's probably an atheist...Though I suppose I should ask.

The truth is, the Republican campaign donors are rich...As are most Republican Congressmen. The US defaulting will not stop the flood of contributions from oil companies or the Koch brothers. Their lives will not be affected by this; Yours will. The Republicans maxed out Daddy's credit card and now refuse to even pay the interest on their debt and instead, make it out to be Obama's fault. They are the ones who are not compromising. This debt limit increase is not so "Obama can spend more" or "give handouts to fat black women in the projects who had too many kids they couldn't afford". The debt limit needs to be increased to pay the interest on Bush's debt created by his $2.2 trillion dollar tax cuts and his 2 wars and shitty economy.
The Republican's just had a steak and lobster dinner and walked out without paying the bill. Period, end of story.
