I don't think the one's that do that though are anti-intellectuals, I just think they want to inject their own propaganda into the brainwashing of our youth...
Its easier to keep a church going if the next generation has already been brainwashed into thinking their views are legit, or scientifically valid

I could not agree more.
And people wonder why the US is falling way behind in the areas of math and science. We as a society should not tolerate such non-sense. Creationism is a BELIEF, evolution is a SCIENCE...there is a big difference.
I'm really surprised that that was brought up way more often. Love of God(s) brought about the curiosity for truth, but that faith also fenced the curiosity in once it became a threat.

Depends on what you're looking at... or should I say through. If it's through a microscope then no. But if you're studying archaeological finds and the world's religions and mythologies, then there is evidence. **evidence being different then proof**
same place it is now Marco polo's jorney is seriously questioned he fails to mention very important bits and he did nothing for technology that all came down the silk route

Apparently you fail to recognize that technology grows exponentially when multiple cultures meet up and share ideas... The Chinese were technologically superior to the Europeans less than 700 years ago. Where would Europe's technology be if Marco Polo never set sail?
when ceaser got to britain we had been mining tin and trading it with thier north african enemies(carthage for over 400 years)
Where would northern Europe be without Julius Caesar and Rome? when Caesar got to Gaul, it was inhabited by people using stone age technology... same with the British Isles.
no they wernt fighting over it yes they were sharing in a way (they still have a pecking order if they wernt the alpha male/female so one would feed first then the other)

But, this is what I really want to expose.
I once saw a TV show on polar wolves. It was about a pair of wolves and they had cubs. Now, one of them will go and hunt, the other will stay and take care of the little ones.
The hunter catches a hare and brings it home. Now both grown wolves start tearing the hare in two.
The voice-over tells us that they are FIGHTING over it, and explains to the audience that this is normal instinctive behavior which purpose is SURVIVAL.
yes there is look you just used it
But in modern human ideology, there is no such word - sharing.
powerful but wrong and a bit emo
This is such a powerful idea, isn't it? And is it really impossible to get rid of its influence once and for all?
