Yes. I'm a college professor at a state institution. I guarantee that if they figure out that you're a Christian or a conservative that you will not get the job.
Thanks for pointing this out. It's a common mistake.

That site exemplifies perfectly the old rule that you can't trust everything you find on the Internet. It's a hodgepodge of anti-scholarship. Anyone can set up a website. Reader beware.

Facts are not to be considered. Only how it makes them feel. Another example: considering the entire life cycle of a Prius, it is the worst car available from an environmental standpoint. Fortunately for us, bad drivers prefer Priuses, so it's easy to keep an eye on them. Oops, I got off topic. Sorry.
Earl, I agree with your sentiment, but I must make a correction. None of those problems are logical. They are physical problems based on our understanding of the normal way that the world works. Nothing in the Bible violates the principles of logic.

97% of all American farms are family owned. It would be nice if the "big corporate farms" myth would go away.
In order for there to be any potential, there must be something actual. Pure potentiality is pure nothing, and you cannot get something from nothing. So according to your reasoning, if there is only a potential human being, then there would never be an actual human being. How did any of us ever come to be? You've just proven that none of us actually exist. But we DO actually exist, proving that your argument is fallacious. There must be something actual for there to be potential. What is the actual thing that has potential?
You have a lot of interesting things to say about the Constitution. I'd be interested in learning where it says you have a right to kill people (earlier post). I'd be interested in learning where it says you have a right NOT to hear about something. If you're considering responding, please get out a copy and quote it exactly. I'm not interested in reading what you think it says. I'm interested in reading what it actually says.
KM, you commit the fallacy called "misplaced burden of proof." You are the one who asserted that the Bible has nothing to say about the unborn. It's your job to prove it. We don't need to concern ourselves with what ancient Greeks thought. Everyone who has taken a high school biology class knows that life begins at conception. Perhaps you're still in junior high school and haven't gotten to that lesson yet. Borrow one of your older siblings' biology textbook and have a look.
Jay Wye makes a category error. Killing a tumor with human DNA does not kill a human being. Killing a fertilized egg with human DNA does kill a human being. How do we know? Through the weeks the fertilized egg (which is an entire human being) becomes a larger and larger human being. If one waits nine months, the tumor does not become a human being. It remains a tumor. Perhaps Jay Wye has not noticed that like the fetus, he too is a lump of cells. Even at the moment of conception, this is no undifferentiated lump of cells. That is simply misleading propaganda.
