Creationism is Stupid

And it’s being taught in schools. I know its an issue that has been around for awhile (and isn’t going away), but I think it’s good to remind people this is happening.

    “Kids, welcome to Biology 101. We’re gonna learn lots of fun things in
    this class. We’re gonna learn how…we’re gonna cut up frogs, and we’re
    gonna pick flowers, and we’re gonna learn about pistils and stamens and
    all kinds of fun things, but the first thing you need to know, boys and
    girls, above all else, is that ‘You are an accident!’. You have absolutely
    no reason for being here! There is no meaning, no purpose to your life!
    You’re nothing but a meaningless conglomeration of molecules that came
    together purely by chance billions and billions of years ago! All the dust
    and the gas and the galaxy floated around for who knows how long, and they
    bumped into each other and they said, ‘I know. Let’s be organic!’ So they
    became organic. And they became little, little gooey, slimey things, you
    know, swimming around in the primordial soup, and they finally grew little
    feet, and they crawled up on the land, and they grew fur and feathers and
    became higher forms of life, and finally became, you know, a monkey, then
    the monkey developed into an ape, then the ape decided to shave, so he
    shaved, and became what you are today! It’s, you know, from goo to you by
    way of the zoo! As such we really don’t have any reason for being here.
    Your existence is pointless. The universe won’t mind a bit when you die.
    And when you die, you just become so much compost [Riiiiiing!] Oh, okay,
    class dismissed. Head on down the hall now, kids, down to that new class
    we’re starting this week on self-esteem!” –an excerpt from “What We
    Believe”, a presentation Frank Peretti gave at the Steeling the Mind of
    America conference (Vale, Colorado, 1997.)

    David, the self esteem bit beautifully illustrates where the religious are coming from. They need a crutch to hang their tattered weak understanding of reality upon. There is nothing worse than replacing lack of understanding with mythology. Man created gods.
