Wow, Simpsons are right though.
Anyways, is it not sad that kids in Cobb County Georgia are being taught that the earth is 6,000 years old, Noah and his flood happened, creation is
correct, and that the Grand Canyon is proof of all of this? Thats right. Dwanye(the leader of the movement to get evolution and science banned in
place of religous teachings) said the Grand Canyon was not built by millions of years of erosion, but happened in hours by the world flood of Noah.
This is taught as FACT in Cobbs County. These people actually believe this and are teaching it to the kids. The scientists interveiwed all laughed
at the idea the Grand Canyon was made in hours. Dwanye also said that scientists do not agree with each other. The scientists asked said they agreed
with each other. So, take Dwanye's word that scientists don't agree or take the scientists words that they do agree.
Dwanye tried in Kansas and Mississippi and other states but always lost. I am wondering why it succeeded in Georgia. Why in Georgia is science
banned and replaced with religon? What if the kid was Hindu or Buddist or atheist? Why should they be taught religon in public schools? If they
wanted christian religon taught to them they would go to a christian church. But they go to public schools for this is normally not allowed in public
schools. But the majority of the people who showed up to vote voted that creation is a science so should be taught in science classes. Well, as
said, 50 people vote that Shadow is a woman so he must be a woman. Wait, he isn't, and no amount of voting will change that.
Creation-Fiction-taught-and in some cases tortured into the people who don't believe.
Also, to get creation into schools they came up with Intelligant design. Saying that a higher being created everything on earth. This lead to the
creation of Raelians(sp?) who believe the exact same thing, but say the higher being is an alien/group of aliens. They all believe a higher being
created humans, yet the christians say the Raelians are crackpot nutso loony bins but they are correct.
Creationists/Intelligant design(ID) people do not try to prove they are right, but try to prove evolution is wrong. This is not how you conduct
science! You say something is true, you try to prove it is true, you don't try to disprove everyother theory then say you must be correct cause
everyone else is wrong. Creation is religon, and does not belong in school. I feel sorry for the kids of Cobbs County when they go to college. It
would be like being taught that jews rule the world, we have no proof but we will teach this from elementary to high school. Now lets send the kids
out into the real world and see what happens! hey, not a bad idea, make a great tv show. "Brainwashed Kids Meet the Real World"!
Also, creationists try to get creation in by argueing that if you teach evolution then you should teach creation as a counterpoint. But if we do
that, then shouldn't we allow a teacher to teach about the holocaust then have another teacher come in and teach that the holocaust never
happened?(For the millions of people who don't believe the holocaust happened, yes, millions still say it never happened) Or have a teacher teach
about the Rape of Nanking then have a teacher come in and teach that it never happened.(yes, people say that didn't happen, though mostly Japanese,
but some not Japanese think that) Or have a teacher teach about the evils of slavery then have another teacher come in and teach that it wasn't
evil?(Yes, some do think that, well, they know that, according to them, for it got the blacks out of Africa and into America where they all had jobs
and BS like that, and of course the bible is used to prove the point that god says slavery is ok)
Sorry, if one was to do that one would need millions of dollars to pay these new "counterpoint" teachers. And well, I don't think to many parents
would like a Neo Nazi or KKK member "teaching" their kids that the holocaust never happened or that slavery was a good thing.
