Now this part IS interesting. Your conspiratorial fantasy is that right
wing political activists, Republicans and other fascists, are out to
destroy culture and anthropology by insisting that everyone fall into the
"Big Bang" camp of cosmology. On the other hand, my conspiratorial
fantasy is that right wing political activists, Republicans and other
fascists, are out to destroy rational thought and science by insisting
that everyone fall into the "Big God" camp of cosmology. No doubt we are
both delusional, but I really must ask, what ARE the right wing political
activists up to?
