Haward Stern - Science Vs Creationism
« on: December 09, 2011, 12:47:20 PM »
Beware lots of F'bombs!

Science Vs Creationism

Interesting take on separation of church and state and why religion should not be taught in schools.
If religions were TV channels atheism is turning the TV off.

Remember, your inability to grasp science is not a valid argument against it.

What's that word or phrase Howard kept saying - "bubba mind"?  In context it seemed to mean "made up bullshit."

You may right. I couldn't understand what he was saying there either.

Oh deary me. I wish I could afford satellite radio!

I obviously find it ridiculous when people suggest we should teach creationism in schools. Now, I'm a pretty "moderate" atheist I suppose you could say, so I'm usually not as boisterous as Stern when discussing something like this. Creationism is not science, as much as they'd like to believe, and therefore should not impede on the teaching of evolution in biology. Evolution, although I haven't studied it yet in college, is such an in-depth topic and deserves to have all the time, not hocus pocus.

Creationism has no place in government-funded schools. Private school? Whatever. I just hope my (eventual) kids live in a world where there's no question whether or not evolution is taught and creationism is not.
