Sure. The "fundies". *oooooooo* Are they the new boogeymen now?

Look, they don't control NASA or the budget, which is of course what this is all about.

And there are a lot of atheists who find themselves praying when their mother gets cancer. People don't like to acknowledge their true helplessness.

Simply breathtaking. I can't believe they're thinking of dumping Hubble into the sea. It should stay up there doing its job until they can go grab it and stick it in the Smithsonian.

And they want to take _this_ down.

:(

Fine, doom yourselves to a eternity of staring each other in the gravity well. See if I care.
