“The state-of-the-art 70,000 square foot museum brings the pages of the Bible to life, casting its characters and animals in dynamic form and placing them in familiar settings. Adam and Eve live in the Garden of Eden. Children play and dinosaurs roam near Eden’s Rivers. The serpent coils cunningly in the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Majestic murals, great masterpieces brimming with pulsating colors and details, provide a backdrop for many of the settings.”
As a part of their fifth anniversary celebration the Creation Museum has opened a new high-tech exhibit designed to expose the scientific bankruptcy of the evolutionary interpretation of the famous so-called ape-woman “Lucy.”
A full 40% of Americans, when asked, say they don’t believe in evolution. It’s not as if we need another good reason for the collapse and failure of American culture, but, we have one anyway.
Is it any wonder our government is as fucked up as it is? Is it at all hard to understand why our schools rank so miserably when compared to schools in other “advanced” nations?
I had an opportunity to talk to a local High School science teacher yesterday. She asked me if I knew how hard it was to teach biology WITHOUT mentioning evolution. She informed me that, over time, you get good at it because if you don’t, and happen to engage a student in a public discussion on the “theory” of evolution, you are more than likely to be lectured by your principal, who him ,or, herself has just had their ass chewed out by an angry parent. So, you teach half-assed biology and, it’s a given that none of the kids ever really catch on fire intellectually, or, go on to do research, get advanced degrees, or contribute to the hard won encyclopedia of human knowledge.
I have lived in the South for 15 years now. I love the weather, the ridiculously low taxes, the fact that my garden is already showing dozens of signs of spring. I love the Blue Ridge Mountains right out my back door and the fact that this area is home to more native species of flowering tree and shrub than any other place in North America. I, loving plants and gardening as I do, actually thrilled when I learned that rhododendrons apparently evolved simultaneously in two places on planet earth… the Himalayas and the Blue ridge Mountains. I can’t see for the life of me how that could have happened, but, it doesn’t stop me from spending hours and hours, every spring, strolling through ancient groves of flowering rhododendrons. I love the fact that spring and fall are the longest seasons of the year and that native trout streams flow down from the mountains five minutes from my door. In many ways it is almost a paradise of a place to live. In two ways it is not.
Racism is found everywhere.
