Ron Paul is an idiot. He has called global warming "one of the greatest hoaxes of all-time" and said that "he's not sure about evolution" although it makes "logical sense"; and Ron Paul doesn't seem to care if the Islamic Republic acquires nuclear weapons although they are an apocalyptic regime and therefore the concept of "mutually assured destruction" does not apply to them like it did with the Soviets - Ron Paul is either naive, stupid, or both - I think the latter.

Oh yeah - Ron Paul is against all science funding.

Frank Schaeffer is no atheist, although he is a ninja.

schaeffer is no longer a fundie, and has become an eastern rite catholic, with no sin concept and no hell, and claims to be closer to the true biblical christianity.. so in essence, he has walked away from the bible...

You can claim otherwise but Ron Paul himself has stated the following quotes that are of interest:

The Founding Fathers envisioned a robustly Christian yet religiously tolerant America, with churches serving as vital institutions that would eclipse the state in importance. — Ron Paul

Through perverse court decisions and years of cultural indoctrination, the elitist, secular Left has managed to convince many in our nation that religion must be driven from public view. The justification is always that someone, somewhere, might possibly be offended or feel uncomfortable living in the midst of a largely Christian society, so all must yield to the fragile sensibilities of the few. The ultimate goal of the anti-religious elites is to transform America into a completely secular nation, a nation that is legally and culturally biased against Christianity. — Ron Paul

And in order (for the candidates of the republicans so far), I would prefer in order 1) Jon Huntsman, 2) Rick Santorum, 3) Mitt Romney but I would love to see former Ambassador John Bolton run and at the current moment I would vote to reelect Barack Obama since the Republicans don't have too many impressive and modern candidates.

And to be naive about Iran is truly despicable; they are nearing to acquire nukes and their main goal is to create an apocalyptic war in which death is part of the equation - as mentioned, there is no "mutually assured destruction" with this regime. As accorded by the Hadith and their own stated intentions of the "return of the hidden imam", they must first conquer Jerusalem (is it any surprise that the Hizbollah missiles supplied by Iran have mushroom clouds ingrained on them with quranic verses) and then move on to the west in which 2/3rd of humanity die through war, famine, and chaos. This would be their last ditch hope to also prevent regime change by creating the most bloody events since Hitler. You fail to grasp the reality of what it means to have end-of-the-world Islamic madmen nearing the capabilities of acquiring nuclear weapons.

U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas has called the concern about Earth's changing climate "the greatest hoax I think that has been around for many, many years, if not hundreds of years," based on the Climategate reports (see above). He's opposed to energy subsidies as well as government efforts to control greenhouse-gas emissions. "Pollution can be better taken care of under a private market system, under private property," he said.

Paul says "nobody has concrete proof" for evolutionary theory, although he acknowledges that "it's a pretty logical theory." In his view, the intelligent-design concept has more to do with personal beliefs rather than science. "In a libertarian society these beliefs aren't nearly as critical. When you have government schools, it becomes important," he said. "'Are you fair in teaching that the earth could have been created by a creator or it came out of a pop, out of nowhere?' In a personal world, we don't have government dictating and ruling all these things; it's not very important."

Paul voiced strong opposition to federal funding for science education in 2000, saying that "Congress has no constitutional authority to single out any one academic discipline as deserving special emphasis." More recently, Paul was one of two members of Congress voting against a resolution to mark NSF's 60th anniversary.
