That’s exactly what must be happening with creationists – because the obvious refusal to use the mind, the brain, and instead utter such bullshit (pardon, had to be said) as can be seen e.g. on GodTube.com (the apparently fast growing YouTube copy for
Christians christian fundamentalists) cannot be an advantage for mankind.
Example: Evolution woud say that all inanimate things become life, including mousetraps becoming mice (near the end of this clip about woodpeckers).
As Ernest Hemingway said:
“All thinking men are atheists.”
Max from „Wissen belastet“, where I found this, mentions (in German) some more questionable examples and contents of GodTube.com, e.g. a little girl who “may” memorize a Psalm, of course with many comments on GodTube appreciating this.
A quote from Phil Plait from BadAstronomy.com:
“When you see that spark, that glow, that moment when a child understands what they are seeing [through a telescope], or even just the potential in their faces as they chew over the nature of reality, of the Universe… the joy that fills your heart is impossible to describe. It’s wondrous.
Creationism and fundamentalist dogma destroy that potential. It’s wrong, and it’s evil.
