I guess I will start this post by linking to something a friend of mine named Joel Furches wrote about an atheist engineer.

He writes:

As an Aerospace Engineer for the U.S. Navy, Jason Pratt is not inaccurate when he describes himself as a rocket scientist for the government. He has flown F-14 Tomcats and the F/A-18F Super Hornet. He was a test pilot of the FA-18B and D Hornet, the FA-18F Super Hornet, and the T-45 Goshawk. His pedigree with all things aeronautical is well established. As was his atheism.

Pratt grew up in a single parent home. He and his sister were raised by their mother, who felt it was her duty to introduce them to church in their teenage years. The church Pratt attended was a religious shell: a ritualistic facade with little reference to actual scriptural…

We have all seen the commercials by the Humane Society which show us the terrified eyes of animals (mostly dogs) who have been abused and neglected. Anyone with a heart, upon seeing these commercials, will be greatly affected. I know that I am almost brought to the point of tears.

But do you realize that these same people who produce these commercials, are rabid abortion proponents?  Where is the heart break for tiny human beings – torn apart in their mother’s wombs? Now, they are attempting to deliver the dead babies in one piece so that their parts may be sold to companies and universities for profit.

I ran across a website with pictures of various animals in the wombs of their mothers.  The tiresome and “inhumane” mantra of the pro-death camp has always been “The fetus is not a real human being until it is delivered.” That is even…
