It's a denomination of that oh-so-Satanic religion, evolutionism!

The problem is that these people (and by extension, their views) are given attention in the US as if their beliefs are actually credible. Like creationism, when we get a national debate about whether or not it should be taught in science class. There should be no national debate. It is below any sentient being to engage in such a debate. There should be no compromise here, none at all, and because we've allowed these people to frame the discourse in such a way that they now have credibility in the public eye, their views have become something worthy of discussion. Well, they are not.

We are beyond the point of politeness here, this is sheer lunacy and insanity. When we start calling it that instead of validating it, perhaps things will begin to change.

Some Fundies are truly a disgrace to Christianity AND this country.

Just so people don't think ALL Christian Americans are bat shit crazy, I went to a pretty conservative Christian school and was taught biology by an evolutionist. Studying science in a scientific manner, who'da thunk?!

Geology doesn't exist anymore?


I'm out of high school just over a year and half of the stuff i learnt in geography is now void in the USA.

Lucky i didn't waste my time in science and biology.


Btw i second fantasy land.

Fundamentalists - regressing human progression and knowledge ever since science came about

And if your going to pick a case for catastrophism why pick the Grand Canyon when there are much better examples of catastrophic floods in more recent deposits.

I normally just lurk in this forum, but I just have to comment that this is the most batshit crazy thing I've read in a long, long time.

Those fundamentalists scare me.

Yes all Christians aren't bat shit crazy, they are according to some people in FYM but I digress...

I went to a Catholic college and was taught perfectly straightforward scientific biology as it should be taught, with no Catholic or Christian ideology thrown in. In fact the only time I learned anything religious was in my religious studies classes. And I certainly don't endorse this Grand Canyon craziness, it is bat shit crazy.

God of the gaps doesn't exist when knowledge fills it in, just wait for a rigourous testable theory of conciousness to punch a big hole in belief.
