[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Belichick open to trading BRADY, will he do it? : first of, if you really know your history, it would be clear to you that the Catholic Church was actively burning and persecuting the likes of Galileo as late as the 17th century over things like the flat-earth theory. it wasnt til the 19th century that they offically recognized that the non-flatearthers could have been right. also, when the government health care debate started it was much higher than 45%. thanks to the irritants like the Glenn Becks, that number has come down, i guess my point was more about health care in general. most still favor it as they do with most government or public based "welfare" programs that specifically benefits them be it on class, industry (your banking and wall street types), race, or gender reasons. the argument is always the same. most people.. according to this and that survey... my retort is a fairly consistent "so what?" because most people believe it or say so doesnt necessarily make it true. sometimes it is, sometimes it's not! Do not confuse your adventurers or thinking elite as ever represent a majority. most people do not think or venture broadly from what they know or from where they came from and inherited. despite revision hisory, MOST people were perfectly content with slavery. had u taken a poll at anytime in the 18th century anywhere in this country, most would have voted in favor of slavery. just like with meat and animal cruelty today. in 50 years or so, you will find more people less inclined to treat other beings as we do. change happens due to a few radical and often contrarian thinking MINORITIES.

I do know my history and science. The Catholic Church was concerned with the helio-centric model that was defined by Copernicus and proved by Kepler mathematically who utilized the vast collection of astronomical observations of Tycho Brahe. Galileo confirmed these theories through observations of the phases of Venus. The Catholic church in Galileo's day was quite informed about the roundness of the Earth through the many maritime trading ventures coming and going through the Mediterranean at the time. They were persecuting those scientists who tried to dismiss the geo-centric model of the known universe.They never promoted the notion that the world was flat you stupid fool. The only well known scientist burned at the stake by edict of the Catholic Church was Giodarno Bruno, in 1600, which was for his support of the Copernican helio-centric model.
Now throw some more BS at us about how great you are because you can see an alternative side to things backed by factually incorrect information. You don't know what the fk you're talking about and you are completely wrong on your statements on history. You really look like a fool with your arrogant views that you are better than the rest of us because you get a hard on by posting every controversial angle you can dream up about a subject.
Any clown can do what you're doing. It doesn't make you smart,it's only feeding your burning desire for any attention you can muster. It's really pathetic.
If you are going to come at us like the modern messiah of alternative thinking and try to convince all of us that you are indeed the genius of the football board,then at least post at an intellectual level that transcends that of a high school Earth Science classroom.
