They do indeed... But they won't.

The GOP Needs to Leave Religion Behind

http://time.com/3670018/gop-republican-party-religion/
Displays of religiosity have become increasingly public and de riguer in GOP politics, but the reality is that Americans are turning away from organized religion

I'd honestly never heard this stat before, and it's pretty amazing how well they tightly fit together.

Personally, I still think that something Glass-like will become a huge hit in the consumer market. I can see the argument that it will succeed first in the business market. There are lots of situations where people could use a POV video cameras recording as part of their job.

I've said it before though that my ideal form of glass isn't the little thing hanging off the side, but a real pair of glasses that covers my whole vision and has transparent displays. This allows for full AR and other things that Glass can't do in its current form. The first step in that direction is the Oculus Rift. AR will come first in a much more bulky format that you won't wear around in public, but that will morph over time and Oculus and Glass merge into a single product.

Because they think you are too stupid to have access to your own medical information, the FDA will do everything it can to destroy this awesome technology.

This is the most elegant and thoughtful opinion on atheism that I have ever read.

http://www.cnn.com/2015/01/08/opinion/bell-god-atheism/index.html
Atheists are accused of having no source of meaning in their lives, but it is popular Christian theology that saps the meaning from our daily experiences.

Religion has never contributed a single workable scientific theory to humanity, and has, in fact, consistently and steadily given ground to science. Who are these people and how can they exist in a nation with unlimited free access to information?
 
"  He delivered the final blows to these religious ideas that science cannot be trusted. In true Tyson fashion, he never told viewers they could not hold religious beliefs and never once mentioned atheism; he simply told viewers to question everything, and especially to question anyone who claims to have all the answers.  "
The series will be watched in classrooms around the world -- much to the chagrin of science-denying Evangelicals
