    Tell that to those persecuted by the American Taliban, especially women seeking an abortion or gays wishing to marry.
    What a disgusting display of bigotry this post is....

    It's not anti-religion merely because it contradicts someone's religious ideas. Otherwise you'd believe that teaching evolution is a violation of the 1st Amendment because that's an anti-religion idea. You don't think that, do you?

    Which isn't to say faith isn't important, just that it's not science.
    Depends upon the context. Creation (of the universe) is still a subject we're exploring, it's not settled science yet. God is one of the possible initiators.

    The ONLY logical initiator.

    Unless you believe in the equivalent of winning the lottery every day, without fail, since the universe began...

    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.

    Never said single payer did exist in America, but you should stick to the topic. Oh, I also rarely use the term 'socialism' to describe what is happening, although it could be apt, it looks like it may not be totally accurate. So your attempt to justify your own fear mongering, while denouncing opposition ability to do the same is at the least hypocritical. Surely you see that?

    For many people - in a large number of religions - it conflicts with religious doctrines or they're not taught any such thing in school (if they have a school at all to attend).

    You're acting like knowledge that we teach is some sort of generic info that everyone is aware of. Evolution is a relatively new school of thought in contrast to things like math. And couple that with religious conflicts - it's often not taught at all in school save for 'a theory'

    Because - mind you - it is still just a theory.
    Gravity is a theory too. Yet it has been observed. Mitochondrial DNA, the fossil record, and other observations put evolution into the same kind of area as gravity . . . yes?

    Where did gravity come from?

    Where did the animals making up the fossil record come from? (which coincidentally show that evolution is false, more than any other dataset - where are the billions of transitory fossils which SHOULD exist but don't?)

    If dinosaurs became birds, then where are the hundreds of thousands of transitory creatures whereby the legs became the highly sophisticated flying machines that are bird wings? (which humans are incapable of replicating)

    [not conjecture based on shape of whale skeletons]

    How does the most complex digital software ever known to exist write itself? (DNA)

    How does that ultra-complex software self-error correct?

    Chance? lol?

    As a software engineer, the thought of tossing random bits into my code and expecting it to work is comical. DNA is FAR MORE COMPLEX than ALL HUMAN CODE COMBINED. (one strand)

    Ah.
    I can't keep up with video-game technology- what chance do I have with keeping current genetics?

    Okay - who here rejects evolution?

    Show of hands please.


    "Republicans" are growing skeptical???? Really?

    Like there's growing evidence against evolution?



    I have mixed feelings about this issue.

    While I personally believe that evolution has happened and is going on right now, I don't believe that those who deny the existence of evolution should be forced to evolve.
