Nobelists oppose creation science law

In Aug 1986, seventy-two Nobel Prize-winning scientists filed a legal brief with the U.S. Supreme Court challenging as unconstitutional a Louisiana law requiring schools that teach evolution to also teach “creation-science.” A news release described the scientists as “the largest group of Nobel laureates ever to support a single statement on any subject..” At a news conference in Washington D.C. the same day, they warned that the Louisiana law threatened scientific education by disparaging proven scientific facts to promote fundamentalist Christian beliefs. Dr. Murray Gell-Mann (1969 Nobel Prize in Physics), led the effort. A Federal District Court had struck down the Louisiana law in Jan 1985, as promotion of religious belief. A U.S. Court of Appeals agreed. The Supreme Court ruled against the law on 19 Jun 1987.«

A pastor's wife was expecting...

A pastor's wife was expecting a baby, so he stood before the congregationand asked for a raise.
After much discussion, they passed a rule that whenever the preacher'sfamily expanded, so would his paycheck.
After 6 children, this started to get expensive and the congregation decidedto hold another meeting to discuss the preacher's expanding salary.
A great deal of yelling and inner bickering ensued, as to how much theclergyman's additional children were costing the church, and how much moreit could potentially cost.
After listening to them for about an hour, the pastor rose from his chairand spoke, 'Children are a gift from God, and we will take as many gifts asHe gives us.
Silence fell on the congregation.
In the back pew, a little old lady struggled to stand, and finally said inher frail voice, 'Rain is also a gift from God, but when we get too much ofit, we wear rubbers.'
The entire congregation said, 'Amen.'
