Best 527 ad ever?

Ok all you third party groups, 527s, non-profits, and others doing ads (TV or online). Listen up.

This is how you do it. If I've seen a better ad than this one, someone needs to remind me; right now this is the best I can recall.




(and I'm an Evangelical Protestant!)

Aw come on - you can be a Catholic too. Just look at me.

Whoops, maybe I shouldn't say that?

"Hey, ignore all those heretics we burned at the stake - and the centuries of setbacks dealt to civilization by condemning scientific discovery. We slapped a cool ad together so you should trust us now."

To Anon 2:45--

The ad isn't asking you to trust them. Just NOT trust Obama and Biden and the baby-killers re: life.

..."centuries of setbacks dealt to civilization by condemning scientific discovery"? Where did you get your education from, Bob Jones? Chick tracts? Try this one on for size: On March 12, 2008, the John Templeton Foundation made the announcement of the winner of its annual Templeton Prize, which honors achievements engaging the great questions of life and the universe. The $1.6 million prize for 2008 went to Michal Heller, a Polish cosmologist and professor in the faculty of philosophy at the Pontifical Academy of Theology in Cracow, Poland. What makes Heller additionally remarkable is that he is a Catholic priest.

Or how about Roger Bacon, the 13th-century Franciscan who stressed the concept of "laws of nature" and contributed to the development of mechanics, geography, and especially optics? And then there was the Augustinian abbot Gregor Mendel, the father of modern genetics. Shall I go on? How about Fr. Georges Lemaître (1894-1966), a Belgian priest, physicist, and mathematician, who first proposed the Big Bang Theory for the birth of the universe. Born in Charleroi, Belgium, he studied math and science at Cambridge University after ordination in 1923 and specialized in the then-most-current studies in astronomy and cosmology, especially Einstein's general theory of relativity. He presented his theory in January 1933 to a gathering of scientists in California, and at the end of his presentation, Einstein applauded and declared, "This is the most beautiful and satisfactory explanation of creation to which I have ever listened." Lemaître's ideas subsequently gained ground. Today, astrophysicists readily accept the Big Bang and the continuing expansion of the universe. For his labors, Lemaître was made a member of the Royal Academy of Belgium and a canon of the cathedral of Malines. In 1936, Pope Pius XI inducted him into the Pontifical Academy of Science.
