While rooting for the fascists in Iraq...
One way to gauge how upset Scott is is to watch which of his voodoo dolls he is shaking. If he shakes his "talk radio" (meaning Rush Limbaugh) voodoo doll, he's a little upset. If he shakes his Joe McCarthy voodoo doll he's very upset. But when he shakes his fascist voodoo doll and mentions Hitler, he's just beside himself.
In the Iraq part of his post Scott is very excited by the prospect of civil war in Iraq, an excitation that was no doubt itself excited by the upsurge in terror attacks in the past week to ten days. Civil war in Iraq would be a great relief for Scott, given that he has always opposed success in the mission. Success, you see, would have portrayed the U.S. in a good light, and we can't have that.
In the second part of today's entry Scott adds some more drivel to his "Spirit and Belief" "series." He ends with this stunning conclusion: "modern spiritualism and religion can co-exist with modern science." Forget the misuse of "spiritualism" for "spirituality," the purpose of this conclusion is to allow that clear-thinking and rational people of science can allow people to feel all warm and fuzzy about the universe, if they insist upon it.
That's so big of Scott, don't you think?
