->The righteous need not cower before the drumbeat of human progress. Though the song of yesterday fades into the challenge of tomorrow, God still watches and judges us. Evil lurks in the datalinks, as it lurked in the streets of yesteryear -- but, it was never the streets that were evil.

->Why pay attention to these scientists And we're really regressing back to the medieval period. It's not a joke.

->The case for action rests on the realization that for the first time since the beginning of the Enlightenment era in the mid-17th century, the very idea of science as a way to establish a common book of knowledge about the world is being broadly called into question by heavily financed [[LetNoCrisisGoToWaste public relations campaigns.]]

->The prime minister and his wife, [[UsefulNotes/TonyBlair Tony and Cherie Blair]], were asked by journalists if their son Leo had been vaccinated.

Then there was the fact that Cherie Blair wore crystals to keep evil rays from harming her.

Which makes their figuring out enough about the internet to vomit their refuse on to it absolutely fascinating to study in its dissonance.

->It should be noted that a lot of Nina's personal beliefs are, quite frankly, horseshit. Her new age babblings about a cosmic goodness are overbearingly trite and she's also one of these nutbags who thinks AIDS is an innately benign condition and that it's [[ConspiracyTheorist actually AIDS medication that is killing everyone]] (Her and [[Music/{{Nirvana}} Dave Grohl]].)
