    Calamity, a more intelligent person would recognize that your original remark concerned a 1/3 of the US population, while the type of violence you are now citing in support of your characterization was carried out by an extreme minority within that group.

    Now, considering our past discussions, I understand such obvious and simple facts will never sway you, but given the irony of such in this thread it might be worth throwing it out there and letting everyone "chew on it"

    LOL You mean he made up a story that added nothing to mans knowledge of his ancestors. In fact the Bible has nothing that was not known at the time of its creation. Don't you find that strange?

    Those are based on actual study of the subjects, though. Not just because someone thinks so or believes it.

    Ok, so why bring up a 'boogeyman' that doesn't exist?
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Nope, not so much. Especially with language, it's regional. Otherwise there wouldn't be accents.

    There have been efforts that have thankfully failed for the most part. Although several states have passed laws that deliberately downplay evolution. The Supreme Court smacked down the outright teaching of creationism in a science class, but there are ongoing attempts to circumvent that by rebranding creationism as "intelligent design."

    I know New England is very pretty, but I don't like cold weather. I also will not visit a state that will not allow me to carry a firearm.

    There is no scientific evidence disproving the existence of God, therefore that would be an inappropriate statement to make in a science class, yes.
