Atheists tell us that science and education will bring a resolution to the ills of the world.
In 2010, 20 million men, women and children died of starvation.
In the same year Sex In The City 2 made 228 million dollars opening weekend.
Each year, just in North America we spend:
. 22 billion a year renting videos and DVD’s,
. 95 billion on Lawn and garden supplies,
. 389 billion on Restaurant meals,
. 24 billion on salty snacks,
. 16 billion on chocolate,
. 5 billion a year on anti-aging creams,
. 10 billion on mother’s day flowers and gifts,
. 30 billion on pornography,
. 50 billion a year on lotteries and another
. 50 billion on illegal gambling.
Perhaps our problems lie a bit deeper than what advances in science and education can address.
