That the anchor in the story below opens by saying creationism in the same sentence as evolution as being one or the other is a mystery to me. How does a creation myth get equal bidding with a scientific theory?
Only in this country.
It’s like saying, “Yesterday, Jeremy believes his tea was created by pixies in the kitchen or it was made when he heated up water on the stove and poured it over a teabag … it has to be one or the other.”
Slowly but surely, intelligent people are reading and pursuing the evidence and they see that they can’t deny what science has to offer. Religionistas are able to couple all kinds of other ideas into their “faith” that don’t belong there. They can honor a book that advocates killing children in the same book that says love neighbors … but they can’t accept a scientific perspective while agreeing with love neighbors … I find that hard to believe. Why is the story of origins the breaking point for biblical passages that conflict with their message?
