Every dilapidated bridge in the nation is as "shovel ready" as the bridge projects that went through in my town. What's lacking is the political will to spend money on them. Why repair them now if...

Here's my question: If the bible was teaching people about the electromagnetic spectrum 3000 years ago (as you suggest in points 5, 6, and 7), then why didn't Jesus have his own radio show?
