Last year in the Wall Street Journal, author Eric Metaxas wrote a popular article titled, SCIENCE INCREASINGLY MAKES THE CASE FOR GOD (December 25, 2014). It is not only this article, but its subsequent rebuttal in another publication that is profound. Mr. Metaxas, makes the case (quoting some scientists and academics, I might add) that the statistical probability of life and the universe existing without intelligent design is most improbable. However, in the New Yorker magazine, Lawrence Krauss responded, in part:
"Such a claim is fraught with statistical perils. In order for me to be writing this piece, consider all the factors that had to be 'just right': I had to find myself in San Francisco; the sequence of stoplights my taxi had to traverse in order to get me to the airport; the airport security screener had to experience similar coincidences in order to be there when I needed her; same goes for the pilot. It would be easy for me to derive a set of probabilities that, when multiplied together, would produce a number so small that it would be statistically impossible for me to be here now writing."

(2nd District Cong. Scott) Rigell is a liar.
Naturally he'd vote to fully fund Planned Parenthood. I guess that he feels that it's cool to kill babies and cut them up (to sell their pieces)?
I know that Rigell won't answer my registered letter and (he) lied to me in front of 200+ voters at his Town Hall meeting in April 2015. Yep, Rigell is a liar!
John P. Kuchta Jr.
[Kuchta has written registered, return receipt, letters and attended and questioned Rep. Rigell about his political policies on terrorism to budgeting to murdering babies without getting a response. He continues to ask, "Why?"]
By Lou Pritchett,
Letter to Obama from Lou Pritchett, former top executive of Procter and Gamble
[Editor’s note: This is a letter written by one of the country’s top executives criticizing Barack Obama. The New York Times and other national media refused to run it. Read it and you’ll see why the mainstream media is so protective of the president].
Dear President Obama:
You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.
You scare me because after years of exposure, I know nothing about you.
You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive ivy-league education or your extravagant lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support.
You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.
You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll. (Click on 'Read More' below for rest of this article.)
