...and I won't preach evolution in your church!"
I'm not sure who said this, but it really brings out the true nature of believers... whiny!
Have you ever heard of even one example of a scientific community boycotting religion to teach evolution in church? I'll pay $20 to anyone who can show me where this has EVER happened! (Not really, but if you can show me, it would be appreciated)
Last night I went to a meeting sponsored by The Walk For Life Foundation (which I would encourage everyone to get involved with if possible). I happen to be sitting close to a family with 5 children, 4 of which were unruly and disruptive. I observed as the chubby children fought with each other during the meeting and whined about how this and that wasn't fair. The parents were no better than the children, making a scene to keep the children quiet.
Religious people remind me of children like this, always whining that "it's not fair!"
"We want creationism taught in schools! It's only fair to share both sides of an arugment."
To quote the great Bill Maher: "You don't have to teach both sides of a debate if one side is a load of crap!... "Babies come from storks" is not a competing school of thought. In medical school, we shouldn't teach both."
And religious people don't understand why their nonsense isn't taken seriously.
- If you don't like contraceptives, don't use them!
- If you don't like cigarettes, don't smoke them!
- If you don't like alcohol, don't drink it!
- If you don't like strip clubs, don't go to them!
- If you don't like science, don't use it!
- BUT STOP FORCING YOUR IDEALS ON EVERYONE!!!!!
If we taught creationism in schools just to make things "fair" then pretty soon we would have to teach the creation story for all religions. When would it stop?
Besides, would the religious agree that if creationism was taught in schools, then evolution should be taught in church? HELL NO!
"Don't teach creationism in my school and I won't preach evolution in your church!"
