It’s amazing to think that John Scopes was found guilty of teaching evolution in a Tennessee classroom almost 90 years ago. Today we have politicians claiming that the earth was created 9,000 years ago… but only to the right group of people.  Gallop poll shows over 40% of the population believes in creationism.  This debate continues, and it’s the creationists who are debating the facts against evolution.  

The Lord works in mysterious ways, why can’t evolution be one of them?

Frankly, creationism is wrong on many levels, not only science, but morality and ethics.  The promotion of Creationism is part of a broader antiscience agenda promoted by the extreme conservative wing of the Republican Party.  There are serious scientific issues facing modern society.  How can we agree how to move forward on addressing these issues if we can’t agree where we came from?

Check out the video below; feel free to share it with any creationist you know:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
