I do not endorse all he's done or said. I don't even endorse all that's been said about him online and elsewhere.
I also do not agree with how he's handled his monetary affairs. Quite frankly (tho' I wasn't there, and can't speak for those involved) I think that he's probably guilty in some way or other. But not to the tune of needing a worse sentence than some far more dangerous people have been given. After all, many bankers, lawyers, and other high muckity-mucks have gotten off pretty lightly in the not too distant past.
And I do not buy ALL of Creationist theory anymore than I do ALL of Evolutionary theory.
I can find truths in several different areas at both ends of the spectrum, as well as faulty ideas that just don't fit within the whole of the geologic or historical records we currently have.
To raise doubts, or to keep asking discomfiting questions (I do--I always have), no matter your stripe, is almost always a choice made in spite of any controversy which might follow.
Which puts me in an awkward spot, but then I suppose I am used to being the one in just such a position, having views on science some will see as objectionable and views on religious tolerance others find even more objectionable.
Recently, some big things have been happening in the world where his case has been concerned, not one speck of which I could look for at Open now they've finally closed up shop for good. As controversies rage over this hot button topic, I may or may not allow myself to get involved in another argument here at all over it. It's just not worth it.
Nota bene: I can't say whether I could doubt ALL either side is saying, either.
Nor was I able to track down a balanced enough article concerning his case. At least, not balanced enough from a non-religious standpoint, that is.
So here's my best shot--and the guy who made this video may have some slanted views I can't agree with completely, yet he has used real facts and offers the complete package in a short, concise, and I think, pretty clear way.
So here it is. I am NOT preaching to you. This is national news that some of us may have missed in full. Hope everyone gets this about what I am doing here.
I AM EXAMINING WHAT'S BEEN GOING ON WITHIN THE JUDICIAL SYSTYEM.
Peace to anyone reading this.
