    Point being, religion is belief .. that's all it is.

    American Taliban is a minority that intimidates the rest of the Christians and leads the Calvary when it comes to oppressing non-Christians. Also, they are experts at playing the victim, like crying about the war on Christmas or insisting Jesus and Santa are both White.

    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"
    Tell that to those persecuted by the American Taliban, especially women seeking an abortion or gays wishing to marry.

    They shouldn't be teaching about God in science classes one way or the other. It's not science, it's faith.

    Which isn't to say faith isn't important, just that it's not science.

    It's also anti-religion. Promoting the belief that there is no god is a violation of the 1st Amendment.

    The fact remains that today Evolution and Creationism are not taught side by side in Public schools, despite your fears.

    Fear mongering should be ignored.

    Re: One-third of Americans reject evolution, poll shows

    Evolution / Abiogenesis:

    Nothing exploded and became everything. Then the everything which was nothing decided to explode within itself and generate us.

    And we are 'stupid' and 'ignorant' for believing an engineer outside of space-time created the ultra-complexity in the universe?

    LOL

    Was it:

    A: A product of random accidental chaos (Do you believe order rises from chaos?)

    or

    B: A product of higher design (Do you believe order rises from higher intelligence?)


    Now, you need to apply this same question to EVERY single tiny detail, every symbiotic system and literally EVERYTHING from the smallest cell to the largest star........ as well as every single connecting (and vitally critical) system in-between in our finite little universe comprised of 3 dimensional pixels.

    What we know for certain is that "order rising from chaos" of its own accord does NOT happen in anything scientifically observable -> not without preexisting coding to do such (just like a computer program)..... or a plant seed..... or a DNA strand.....


    ----

    I say the pseudo-scientists in this thread need to re-evaluate their 'evidence'.

    Can you reproduce evolution in a lab? No? Oh it's conjecture from analyzing bone structures? I see... so evolution really isn't science, but conjecture.

    Did you know that DNA contains digital instructions sets for creating every component of a symbiotic biological android which is both symbiotic internally and externally?

    And that just happened ... and I'm dumb for questioning the now-ancient reasoning of Chuck Darwin.
