I have recently abandoned my "religion". (Catholicism) Not because they believe Jesus rode a dinosaur to the 7-11, but because I stepped out of my
formed box and re read the bible. It just became as ludicrous to me, as reading stories about Santa Claus and his magic flying reindeer.
I have taught my children that many people believe in God and why. I have let them read the bible and my oldest couldn't even get through genesis
without disbelieving the story. I have not expressed my personal beliefs to them, as I think they need to find their own way.
Creator or science or both..whatever they decide, I can support.
Except Ken Ham's version of creationism. I won't support that. That is unique to the United States (but is unfortunately spreading). Mostly due to
the darkside of the OP discussing information being at the tips of everyone's fingers, instantly. People see it on the internet, believe it, without
doing their own research. They believe that research concluded that Mr. Rogers WAS in the military, a war hero and violent sniper, when in fact the
timeline of his life and schooling is not consistent with those claims. But then any claims against become "disinfo" for the believers....and
voila. More division.
Sometimes, the internet is as dangerous as religions...divide, divide, divide...
I guess I kinda digressed. Sorry. More on point. Hard core "Ham ers'" (creationists) are like a slap in everyone's face on both sides of that
question. Science or God?
