Here is an excerpt from Dawkins in "The Greatest Show". Another reason to get angry with purveyors of this carp.

 


"Once again, I am sorry to take a sledgehammer to so small and fragile a nut, but I have to do

so because more than 40 per cent of the American people believe literally in the story of Noah's

Ark. We should be able to ignore them and get on with our science, but we can't afford to because

they control school boards, they home-school their children to deprive them of access to proper

science teachers, and they include many members of the United States Congress, some state

governors and even presidential and vice-presidential candidates. They have the money and the

power to build institutions, universities, even a museum where children ride life-size mechanical

models of dinosaurs, which, they are solemnly told, coexisted with humans. And, as recent polls

have shown, Britain is not far behind (or should that read 'ahead'?), along with parts of Europe and

most of the Islamic world." Richard Dawkins.

Keep in mind that the parents sitting there with their children were once the poor innocent kids that didn't know any better...And one day those poor innocent kids in the video will be brainwashing their poor innocent kids with the same ignorance. Very sad, indeed.

Ahh the straw man argument. He should be ashamed to show those pics of apes as grandparents to those kids. He knows evolution takes WAY longer than that. I guess he'd rather believe that we came from dirt...Then the lady says that the bible stories are EASIER to explain to the kids. Of course they are, they were written by people thousands of years ago.

Where have they been?  The term dinosaur and modern paleontology have been around since the late 19th century.

My blood boiled watching this. Does this brainwashing stupidity exist anywhere other than America?

Yeah, the Middle East.

Anyone who brainwashed a child into refuting reason should be sterilized, have their children taken away, and then have a permanent restraining order keeping them at least 100 meters from anyone under the age of 14.

watching this video is like nails on a chalkboard

I just watched this with my child a 6th grader.i was watching it when he came to see what i was watching. And his reaction was "i cant believe those kids dont get a say in learning right, they are being forced to become christians.It doesnt seem right." Along with various facepalms during the video.

I think that sums it up nicely.
