The Lord Giveth, and the Lord Taketh Away

I added WorldNetDaily to my RSS feeds for potent blogging material, and they did not disappoint:

Atheist Richard Dawkins has rejected an offer of $10,000 for an hour-long debate with Christian author Ray Comfort, telling WND he would participate in the argument only on a list of conditions, including a $100,000 donation to his foundation.

Dawkins also is demanding that a staff member for his website be allowed to film the event and then distribute it as a DVD, “if he thinks it is funny enough.”

This is a true shame.  If only the man who believes that religion is child abuse would agree to debate the man who believes that a domesticated banana keeps atheists up at night.  Why, we could enter into a new age of learning, and peace.  Only good things like happiness, and love, and laughter could come out of such an encounter.  Something truly earth shattering, and age defining. Death would be no more, and flowers would spontaneously sprout out of every oriface.

But alas, it is not meant to be.  No, we must drudge on, slowly, and toilously, knowing that much like Voyager, the trek continues.  But we may go forth in the secure knowledge, that our Borg are as easy to defeat as Team Rocket.
