Les Jones BS: Blind Faith ? (16) RE: BS: Blind Faith ? 17 Mar 02


It seems to me that most people have the potential to do bad things, especially when nobody is looking. The law and democracy, not perfect but the best bet, can protect us sometimes.

People believe and say all kinds if things which to many of us appear simply wrong. They only matter when the impinge on the lives of others.

Creationists are not using the bible to look up phone numbers oe mend the car but they are teaching children that the bible can explain geology and biology. What ever the bible is and what ever it is good for, teaching natural history is not one of them.

Creationists often say evoltion is just a theory. Well, what does that mean. Some European languages, French, Spanish, Portugese etc. seem to be related to Italian. The THEORY is these languages developed after the Roman invasions of those countries a long time ago. The evidence is compelling, the THEORY is supported. In the same way the evidence for evolution is overwhelming.

Do we want people who don't understand what a theory is and are confused about the purpose of non-fiction teaching anybody?

What's that strange smell? Is it a book, burning? Now, at what temperature do books burn?

If you fancy some real 'Ore and wonder' read anything by Stephen Jay Gould Cheers
