We're From Other Planets, v1.0

I've been thinking hard about an alternate theory of evolution I heard at Justice Sunday last week. These three young men in their early twenties were talking about women and how hard it was to find a good wife and all, and they started talking about the differences between men and women and how, well, you know, "men are from Mars and women are from Venus" especially since we're at war, and Mars was the god of war, so today it's especially true and all you had to do was look at our president, Mr. Bush to really see the truth of the statement that men are from Mars. Although it readily became apparent that these 3 young men didn't have a whole lot of experience with women and so were less sure of the female half of the theory. Still they decided that since Mrs. Bush is a librarian then it also must be true that women are from Venus.

So like I said, I was thinking about this, and I think it may really be true, that men are from Mars and women are from Venus; you know, the planets, and the old Greek gods too, Mars and Venus, the gods of war and love, respectively. I think those young republicans at Justice Sunday were onto something. Something ancient, something a little bit pagan, a little bit sci-fi; something with just a little bit too much truth to it to be ignored. Something that could set an author up on the bestseller list for 6 years straight. I mean, it's been published, printed, filmed, recorded, edited, rerecorded, now out on DVD, and read by millions of women the world over. Thus proving the theory.

How come, in wikipedia, Mars is a god, but Venus is a myth? No mention on the Discussion pages, and it seems a bit sexist to me...

Well, it's because Mars is a god and Venus is a myth. All you have to do is check with NASA; billions for Mars research, nothing for Venusian research. And look up at the sky - the truth becomes self-evident
