    I can't tempt you to like it, either - no matter what I do.

    I think I'll manage - I've cried myself out and now I think I'll be ok. It'll just take me some . . . you know . . . time.

    Afterall - it's not me - it's you, you asshole

    I think it has something to do with the fact that the Bible says that God created the world in six days, six thousand years ago. That's somewhat incompatible with a scientific theory that says it took billions and billions of years for us to arrive here.

    Those people who are inclined to take the Bible as The Ultimate Book Of Everything have an embarrassing tendency to try to apply it to everything, including science. And of course that creates a lot of conflict, and the True Believers end up wrong and in an uncomfortable place because science usually wins. They're tired of losing and want to fight back against anything that threatens the supremacy of their religious views.

    Seems pretty simple to me.

    I applaud anyone who stands up for their beliefs in lawful and peaceful way such as boycotting. All these comments about people who are offended by evolution being from the dark ages are nonsense. This idea that everybody has to think a certain way is what is from the dark ages.

    Personally, I was already boycotting Dr Pepper because it tastes like ****.

    I lawfully and peacefully stand up for my belief that religious beliefs are a bunch of illogical nonsense by boycotting religious institutions.

    Do you applaud me for my stand as well?

    Another way I lawfully and peacefully stand up for my belief that creationism is an outdated, irrational belief straight out of the dark ages is lawfuly and peacefully stating, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that I believe creationism is an outdated, irrational belief straight out of the dark ages.


    Isn't it hilarious when someone contradicts himself in the very next sentence?
