It's tough being an uncle at times because he can be so stubborn.
Reg - that's a powerful video. How come, do you suppose, that the only flavor those kids came in, was vanilla?
Anytime I watch that video I know I will get angry. I suppose it’s because the children only get to hear one viewpoint. They don’t get balanced views from their “teachers”. What is more concerning though is not only is this viewpoint extreme, it is also completely wrong. Creationism is complete crap. In fact it is not even a form of teaching but purely the indoctrination of young minds and is therefore a form of child abuse. There are a growing number of fundamentalist cults that have a specific agenda to have creationism taught in schools and some are even opening their own or funding others with this in mind. I will not tolerate it when I meet them.
Much of the continued "heritage" of Christianity - in fact of all religions - is due in part to the, possibly unconscious, implementation of the Stockholm Syhndrome, in which children are the captive audience, and as such, have little option but to acquiesce and accept.
Do creationists think a fronkey is proof of evolution, in their own ignorant brains? One would think they would say "Yes but that doesn't explain how a donkey evolved into a frog, or a duck into croc.
The mind boggles.
