Turned Off Science – The Inquisition Continues

leave a comment »

NBC News Planning Editor Sandra Lilley is the writer of this unbelievable whimper of the day. What is really hilarious is that she gets paid to write this way. If I presented reasoning like this in a university, I’d be taken out back and literally mocked to death. After reading her article about students being turned off by the politicization of the evolution debate, I almost began sobbing with sympathy for oppressed scientists everywhere. The gulags of Nebraska come to mind …that is how you spell gulag, right? As I write, I am a mere 35 years young, and I am still searching my memory for a time and place where evolution was not crammed down my throat by some science teacher or university lecturer. To add to this insult, the word theory or possibility was a rare utterance.

The problem I have with the theory of evolution (besides being an open advocate of Creationism) is the unpardonable crime of actually wanting it to be treated as a theory. What Lilley and establishment science cannot stand is that a large portion of this country simply does not want to hear evolution presented as fact. Young minds are impressionable, and both science and religion know this very well. Each would like to get their digs in early. Fine – have at it, but if you can’t prove we came from monkeys and large orderly explosions, then please do not insult my intelligence by force feeding it to me..and be double careful about how you indoctrinate my child. Present your theory, and then be gone with you.

The idea that someone can look at the world today and then pontificate about it coming from primordial soup makes me laugh.. and giddily, I might add. But, if you really want to see how much of evolution is science and how much of it is a religion – the next time you are in a classroom and a bespectacled science maven is talking about how archeopterix grew a tale and teeth, just raise your hand and ask “but this is just a theory, right?” You will quickly see how strikingly close Darwinism comes to being “religion.”
