    I know all this, I just don't get why a creation story wins over observable fact. I don't get why extremist sects of one religion get to decide what's controversial or not, and why the cameras keep focusing on these people. May as well be using the Amish as a "moral compass" for **** sake. Let's just declare cars evil and revert back to horse drawn buggies, and wear thick black wool, because we wouldn't want to offend anybody.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    But you would be offending the TV preachers who would be out of work and they would tell the faithful to revolt in protest of the Anti Christ who is tryng to turn the clock back to the days of devil worship in this country or some **** like that. They are too dense for anyone to get through.

    This.

    But some people will ignore your post because they want to bash Christians at every opportunity, and all this post does is take away their soap box. Where's the fun in that?

    Bashing people who are unlike you is much more fun.

    I beg to differ. First 50% of the world is below average intelligence, and of the other 50% at least 50% are ignorant.

    So, if somebody believes in a literal interpretation of the bible, they are creatures of extreme religious faith. If they are not stupid, they are ignorant, and if they are not ignorant, they are afraid.

    I judge people on individual basis. I make sweeping generalizations to make a point. Obviously there are literalists who none of the above, although I'd wager they are few and far between.

    Those are not the only reasons for religious faith.

    Ignorant - Do not have the intelligence or information to know better and therefore are not stupid.

    Creationists and those who don't believe in evolution are stupid not ignorant. by my fathers and my definition.
    Interesting. I have an opposite definition:

    stupid - lacking intelligence and/or intellect

    Ignorant - lacking knowledge and skill

    What you call a proviso is really a self contradiction. You are unfairly stereotyping the religious by assuming that the intelligen religious are "few and far bewtween."

    This is simple prejudice, and you can't undo it with a boilerplate disclaimer.
