How Many More Myths Must He Teach?
July 10, 2011
I’m always perplexed at the arrogance of the creationists. Based solely on their beliefs, they insist biblical creation must be taught. But if we allow one belief, we must, in pure, simple honesty, allow all. And because there are so many. many ideas of what religion is, the creation, and holiday celebrations in schools would be non stop.
Actually, creationists should like that. It would ensure everyone is totally ignorant, as there’d be no time to teach anything.
Of course, their leaders would still get educated – at least in the ways to manipulate people. But who would make the tools, cure the sick, build houses? All these are products of science, and science would be outlawed.
Oh wait – only some science is outlawed. I keep forgetting – this is willful, manipulative, group-controlling, cherry-picking: not a consistent religious belief.
Religion I can deal with. Using people as tools – no. And that is what the so-called creationists, and tea-partyists are doing. De-humanizing their followers for power. Not good.
Can we all say ‘evil’?
