Or just willful ignorance?
There are two points to this thread..one is obvious, the other you will have to speculate on.
Will toss up some videos for those that hate reading but can bother hitting play
Here is the question...should "creationism" be consided a sign of insanity? Willful ignorance? Should teaching children in a scholastic environment
be considered willfully be teaching a known falsehood
First, some boring science stuff videos for those whom want to know exactly the science behind the tools and measuring
Now the theory of intelligent design:
Here is the meat and potatos overall..."irreducible complexity".
Behe lacks simple understanding overall. irreducible complexity is a myth also. Sadly, the true "brains" behind the irreducible complexity argument
use this specific argument as their core scientific belief system. A absolutely disprovable pile of elegantly put together tripe. They have asked how
the flagellium can be reduced..well, it can't while serving the current function, however, if you remove the functional aspect of the "motor" to
something else completely, be it breathing or a ton of other possibilities, then its very easily disproven. To see if anyone is actually reading this
bit (quick social experiment), type somewhere in your post the word "sparkle". Don't quote that exclusively, just a test to see who is reading
before posting, and who is simply rehearsing their preconceptions. Anyhow, back on topic, but do put that in your post somewhere. Basically, Behe is
saying a bird must always be a bird, no matter how far back you go..which in itself shows a absolute lack of understanding about evolution...
Thats a basic...very basic...primitive really way of explaining it...but feel free to skip that paragraph and simply watch the next video.
Watch this one video here and you will never again believe in irreducible complexity. Creationists..challenge yourself to press play..take a moment to
potentially reveal a truth..even if it may make you uncomfortable initially
So...whats left? What is there honestly left about "creationism" in any of its forms? There is nothing, yet 50% of America still believes in
This is about as sensible as believing Gandalf created everything..there is absolutely no merit..yet it is being pushed by politicians, some
corporations, and being taught by parents homeschooling their children to perpetuate the absolutely known falsehood.
Should it be made a crime to purposefully teach a known falsehood under the guise of truth?
Would it be ok for politicians to teach that women have only half a brain, or that the average black person has a brain defect that forces them to
eventually murder senselessly? How about Asians have less nerve endings, making them ultimately feel no pain in the same way a human experiences it,
therefore you cannot actually torture them so much as..slightly annoy them. Such concepts are unacceptable, dangerous, and warp the minds of those
whom actually believe it...yet we allow "creationism" to continue on in society not just as some silly myth, but as mainstream belief equal to
I personally think that churches and any place that is found to be teaching a known falsehood should have any state money removed from them, taxed,
and be forced to put disclamers up that what is being "taught" is for entertainment purposes only. Also, anyone teaching this crap whom tries to
suggest they are teaching anything other than a fictional piece of garbage and dismissing the "entertainment only" sign should be charged with
Oh, and finally...a bit of toungue in cheek fun:
