For Adults by Supyloco For Adults by Supyloco
Yeah so you'll get it if you've heard the original quote. It was, "Evolution, Fairy Tales for grownups." It was a book written by Ray Comfort. I found the quote interesting because it kind of ignores the fact that many adults believe in the story of Genesis as the origin of all life. But it sounds so mythical. But that's not my main problem with the story of Genesis. Because if you've read it, it has two versions in which the animals come first and then the second version has man coming first. I won't even get to the conversation that this story justifies Sexism. The point is that all the things on earth showing up magically with talking animals and bitchy godfather who grants wishes is ridiculous. It's not to say that there isn't a god, but it's just that the story itself is not real and science and archaeology has debunked this story as a myth. The bible says that all life began in Iraq when the origin of man was in the East African Rift. But other creation myths are also beyond ridiculous. My point is that we can't accept to believe in something without questioning it. I mean we were taught this as kids, but that's kids stuff and we need to grow up.

Adults? not even sure they are. They may have an old body, they are still little children in their heads. American creationists and evangelists and conservatives lack general culture and education.
a 15 years old Western European is more mature, has more knowledge, is better educated, has more culture than a 40 years old American from south USA or the Bible Belt, and more political knowledge than these half-fascists from the republican party. Well, we're not so far from that kind of situation anyway. Creationists = scums of the occidental world, little babies who make of USA the most retard, backward and primitive country of Occident, with evangelists, mormons, and people such as Palin, Rick Perry, Santorum, Herman Cain, Tea Party and all their followers.

I admit that to put all Republicans and Mormons in the same bag is somehow exagerated and simplist, but it's just to provocate in a way, even if actually, because of them people in some parts of Europe, say "Americans are crazy anyway" when they talk about USA, and they don't use crazy in a positive meaning here.
However, I do not change my mind about Evangelists, creationists and Palin, Perry, Santorum, Bachman, Herman Cain and all their insane supporters. Because they do are mad : want to mix up religion, state and politic (so, a theocracy, like Franco in Spain, or Iran and Saudi Arabia), want to reduce the rights of women, are totally reactionnary and undemocratic, or they want to send USA back to European Middle-Age, or send back the world to the dystopian 19th century. In western democracies such fanatics nearly don't exist, and their ideology is mocked and seen as totally ill/insane/sick, there are conservatives, but not as extreme. Your extreme-right wing members of republican party give a really bad image of USA in the democratic world.

What I find most interesting is the hypocrisy. At least don't say it like that if you're going to speak badly about evolution

Ray Comfort has the intellect of a wet sponge, and about as much understanding of science. I wouldn't expect much more- and he does a great job of making his position look completely ridiculous.

These people are either stupid or evil. With this guy it's tough to tell. Most of the time they expect their readers to be stupid and want them to stay that way.

Stupidiy and or ignorant is usually the root of the rejection of science, usually in relation to religion.

I'd like to quote Richard Dawkins on Ray Comfort:
"If evolution is refuted, it will be refuted by new scientific data. It will not be refuted by an idiot."
