That old DovBear tipped me off to this article about evolution. There is yet another foolish argument about evolution and a fight about whether it should be taught in school.
Here is a great quote:
“But pastor and parent Ray Mummert, 54, explained their point.
“If we continue to indoctrinate our young people with non-religious principles, we’re headed for an internal destruction of this society,” he said.
“Evolution is just a theory and there are other theories,” Mummert explained, smiling through his beard.
“There is such a complexity in life, and science wants to hang its hat on a belief that life somehow started — they say there is no creator, no order … I believe there is a creator,” he said.
Both sides acknowledge the political context of the debate over Darwinism, and the relation to the re-election of staunchly Christian President George W. Bush (news – web sites).
“Christians are a lot more bold under Bush’s leadership, he speaks what a lot of us believe,” said Mummert.
“We’ve been attacked by the intelligent, educated segment of the culture,” he said, adding that the school board’s declaration is just a first step.”
There is nothing I hate more than being attacked with by intelligent people and especially the cultured ones, they are the worst.
