Creationism in Schools: What Century is This?

Yes, you are one of those hick hillbillies believing all that religious stuff, and you’re teaching your students to be ignorant racists, and that’s the reality of the situation.  How does a person who doesn’t understand basic biology become a biology teacher?  Let’s be clear about this:  Evolution is the foundation upon which all theoretical and applied life science in the world rests. Reproduction is one of the main defining characteristics of biological life, and reproduction IS evolution.

Somehow, we’ve managed to become collectively ignorant enough to praise ourselves for being ignorant.  We see it as some kind of open minded rationalism to teach the “mainstream” theory that a magical being poofed all life into existence, while giving begrudging lip service to the observed and thoroughly documented process that has been empirically verified hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of times, and upon which the entirety of the biology relies.

Half of the country lives in a fantasy world, where demons magically force people to vomit glass shards and the devil has apparently deceived every biology journal editor in the world.  And we’re proud of this.  We are happy that we’re shunning the entirety of the scientific community in favor of a mythology that was hijacked by liars.

And people wonder why us atheists are a little high strung sometimes…

  1. Here’s an idea. Why doesn’t the Vatican try and exorcise the stupid out of these people? That would be a real miracle.

  3. Let’s face it. If evolution is true, then Adam and Eve never sinned, and God sending Jesus to redeem humanity is a bogus story. So it is no surprise that Christians are fighting with tooth and nails the very foundation of evolution. The same is happening in the Muslim world.
