You are not being funny.
I come here for funny news and find you chatting about something that has become serious news in the US.
The people that are Creationists are a fairly diverse group.
And; That bunch of people can do a lot of damage.
I swear; Holds hands in a serious vow position. One open palm out the other over my heart.)
And; Mean! Holy Fuck! I have had members of the Creationists Movement turn Mean on me.
Sometimes it looks like a way to keep the people of the US divided among themselves.
It also serves to keep the people of the US divided against European Intellectuals.
When faced with snotty Creationists that have worked and kissed ass into positions of power over other people,
I am not allowed the luxury of a "You lead your life; I'll lead mine."
The US has some very serious problems.
The strength and unity of the anti-intellectual creationist movement is a symptom of something else and it is serious.
The chant, Death to Baby Killers! Death to Evolutionist! Atheists are Satan! Death to them!"
Is hovering just under the surface.
Some of those people frighten me.
A working RN can be a young earth creationist; No harm done.
Working Police can be young earth creationists; No harm done.
Working Social Workers can be a young earth creationists; No harm done.
Yet; When empowered and working together, there is harm done.
Such passion these people have.
These people are so easily led.
We have a problem Houston.
Houston can not help us.
Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.
We are all in The Gutter.
Some of us see The Gutter.
Some of us see The Stars.

Those that want to Know; Know.
Those that do not Know; Don't tell them.
They do terrible things to people that Tell Them.
