According to a U of M study in 2006, university researchers found that Americans rate atheists below Muslims, recent immigrants, gays and lesbians and other minority groups in 'sharing their vision of American society.' Atheists are also the minority group most Americans are least willing to allow their children to marry.
Now that's interesting. I wonder if that factoid's figures have changed since then. I might just rouse myself enough to check it out.
Maybe . . .
According to a recent NASA memo, NASA's Curiosity rover, the most advanced rover ever sent to Mars, will land near the Martian equator about 10:31 p.m. PDT August 5, 2012.
Wouldn't it be something to write about if Curiosity sent back a picture of an obviously alien spacecraft with alien astronauts posing in front of it? Maybe waving friendly greetings to the camera?
Or if the spacecraft were to be identified as having been manufactured by Iran, or North Korea, or perhaps South Africa?
Or something else just as wacky.
Well, why not? Fiction is fiction, isn't it?
If I get a little more ambitious sometime during the day, I may add a little something more here.
