    There is no evidence that creationism is false. By definition, there cannot be.

      vidoziz for prez! I don't know what your website is about because my connection is too slow to load it and what did load was a bunch of gibberish... my best guess is that it's an Arabic home shopping network... but that's clearly better than anything the other candidates have to offer.

        Very true.

        Which is some of the reason it shouldn't be taught in classes about science.

          I'm not disagreeing actually. This is why many reject humanism, some on the grounds that what usually passes for humanism isn't humanism at all (critiquing modern humanism as a totalitarian ideology), others replace it for some transcended ahuman value system, while still others embrace a pidgin anti-humanism rhetoric that leads them to weird places.
          Modern man calls walking more quickly in the same direction down the same road “change.”
          The world, in the last three hundred years, has not changed except in that sense.

Give it a rest. They're not hurting you, they're not stupid, and they are like all human beings--reluctant to question what they have been taught by the people they most care about.
            People completley fail to comprehend compartmentalization is the default condition of the human mind.


            BTW Some stuff on LW is interesting reading on this.

Hell your the one complaining about anti-intellectualism yet a poll has found that Tea Party backers are wealthier and more educated than the general public.Romney's problem in the GOP primary is that unless and until he comes up with a convincing way to distance himself from Romneycare it weakens any potential GOP attack on Obama's healthcare law given how many ideas were borrowed Romney's work in Massachusetts.
              BTW the Tea Partiers are not more educated or wealthier compared to their peers in their age group. The thing is they're in their 50's and 60's with just 1-2 years of junior college on average so compare them to other folks in their 50's-60's and they are the average for that age group. Sure, they make more then the 20 to 30 somethings on average simply because they've been working longer but there is no way someone who dropped out of junior college after a year or two should be considered well educated. No matter how Fox News tries to spin it we're talking about middle class to lower middle class folks who are stupidly endorsing policies which are against their own self interests. Now, that's what I call a sucker.

              • The craziest ones are actually the least damaging because there is no way in hell they'd actually win an election. Given the GOP field and how the economy is improving (and should continue to do so for the next 18 months) I'd say Obama is a shoe in for reelection.

                    Not Fox News:
                    Tea Party attendees were exceptionally well educated: 59% had at least a college degree and about 1 out of every 4 people there had at least some postgraduate study, well above national educational levels (33% at least a college degree, and 16% postgrad) and beyond even previous measures among Tea Party supporters that mimicked the national numbers.

                    Roughly 1 out of every 3 people in attendance (34%) have a total household income of $100,000 or more. This is a notable deviation from the NY Times/CBS survey in which only 20% of Tea Party supporters reported that level of income, a number already ahead of national household income patterns.

                    • The tea party is a strange mixture of dumb rednecks and privileged people who like to whine about having to pay taxes. Kind of like the Republican party!
