"I'm sorry but I have learned the art of Critical thinking, therefore I can and will absorb science." thinkingblue
I found this on facebook this morning and thought it interesting enough to share on some of my blogs for those who also have learned the art of Critical thinking.
From Frank's Facebook Post: Christians who view the stories of the Old Testament as historical fact have come to be known as creationists, and many argue that the world was created by God just a few thousand years ago.
"The Earth is not 6,000 or 10,000 years old," Bill Nye said in an interview with The Associated Press. "It's not. And if that conflicts with your beliefs, I strongly feel you should question your beliefs."Tell me it ain't so! :(
Millions of Americans do hold those beliefs, according to a June Gallup poll that found 46 percent of Americans believe God created humans in their present form about 10,000 years ago.
Check it out here:
Bill Nye: Creationism Threatens U.S. Science
46% - This type of ignorance is not only disgusting it’s frightening; To think of the enormous potential of the human brain and how so many choose to squander the inherent possibilities of it, on frivolous and primitive thinking is beyond my grasp on reality. But these science deniers have also had their brains taken over by fear, (supernatural dogma and fear go hand and hand) and FEAR is something that is almost impossible to overcome. I say “almost impossible” but it’s not beyond potentiality since we homo-sapiens all share this wondrous organ called a brain that can be manipulated (the brain has evolved to such phenomenal immeasurable heights we all are capable of turning our thoughts away from the darkness of superstition and into the light of cogitation) but judging from the witless remarks below from this site: http://www.noanswersingenesis.org.au/...
IT AIN’T A GONNA BE AN EASY TASK FOR SOME! thinkingblue
"Creationism is not the alternative to Evolution, ignorance is"And so it goes, on and on with indoctrination closing the minds of 46% of us Americans who have developed fear to such a degree that not one ray of light will ever penetrate their world of darkness. The saddest thing of all is the fact that these people think they derive happiness from such delusions. Just like children seem to be happy with thoughts of Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. :(
Below is a growing collection of responses to this web site in the form of emails and posts to my Message Board and Guest Book . They are presented with spelling and grammatical errors intact.
I have not posted these comments simply to denigrate those with opposing views. However, the poor spelling and grammar in many of the messages seems indicative of grass roots fundamentalists (creationists) and reinforces the fears of scientific educators that to allow creationism in our schools is to endanger the future education of our children.
May God have mercy on you in your blindness, your foolishness and your ignorance.
Ah Mr Stear
You could quite possibly be the only man on earth that DID come from a monkey.

MY DEAR JOHN,
MOST OF WHAT I'VE READ ON NAIG IS GARBAGE AND THE REST OF IT IS LIES.
I CERTAINLY HOPE THAT YOUR IGNORANCE IS YOUR BLISS AND THAT YOU TRULY DON'T BELIEVE ALL THAT STUFF ON THE WEB SITE. IGNORANCE CAN BE OVERCOME WITH TRUTH AND WISDOM, BUT A BELIEF IN THE SATANIC INFLUENCED CONCEPT OF EVOLUTION CAN ONLY BE OVERCOME WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT OVERWHELMS YOU.(REFER TO THE SUBJECT OF THIS EMAIL IF YOU WANT TO KNOW THE OUTCOME OF RESISTING THE HOLY SPIRIT.)
I WILL PRAY THAT THE GOOD LORD WHO MADE YOU WILL ENLIGHTEN YOU, THAT YOU FALL ON YOUR KNEES BEFORE HIM, THAT YOU ADMIT YOU ARE A SINNER AND THAT YOU ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR CREATOR, YOUR LORD , AND YOUR SAVIOR.
ENOUGH OF ME TELLING YOU WHAT YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU NEED TO DO ABOUT IT.
WHILE YOU PONDER YOUR FUTURE, ALSO PONDER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS, IF YOU PLEASE. LET'S GO ALL THE WAY BACK. WHERE DID THE ENERGY THAT EXPLODED INTO MATTER(E=MC2) COME FROM THAT SUPPOSEDLY CAUSED THE BIG BANG? WHAT NATURAL OCCURENCE ALLOWED ENERGY TO TURN INTO MATTER, ANYWAY? WHAT DETERMINED AT WHAT TEMP E=MC2 OCCURES? EVEN ENSTEIN,WHO FIGURED OUT THE FORMULA KNEW IT ALL STARTED WITH GOD. WHERE DID LIGHT COME FROM AND WHAT DETERMINES ITS SPEED? DID IT EVOLVE? AND IF IT DID, FROM WHAT? UNTILYOU CAN ANSWER THE ABOVE DON'T HAND ME ANY GARBAGE ABOUT HOW INORGANIC MATTER TURNED INTO LIFE. IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE THE ORIGINAL MATTER CAME FROM TO START WITH HOW DO YOU THINK YOU WILL GET ANY INTELLIGENT PERSON TO BELIEVE THAT IT COULD EVOVLE?
MY NAME IS GARY HALLER
YOU CAN EMAIL ME AT [email address deleted] WITH YOUR ANSWERS, WHICH, IF YOU NEED A REFERENCE, ARE FOUND IN GENESIS
If you dislike Creationism and Kent Hovind so much. Why haven't you offered up some real proof for Evilution and collected the $250.000 cash from Mr Hovind. it should be easy money for you, since you are so smart!! what did the giraffes evolve from?? they must have evolved from something right?? YOU ARE PRIME EXAMPLES OF THE GOD DELUSION. if you believe it or not you will stand before Jesus one day.
It will be mighty hot in Hell. Jesus Christ died for my sins and your sins too.
Just accept him as Saviour and you will be able to see the truth. I will be praying for you. I love you. I cry for your Salvation. I want you my brother to know the truth about Jesus. You do not have to go to Hell! Eternity is a Long, Long Time my Brother John Stear
