rational thought, and they'll just keep on brainwashing their children "jebus
I don't think it's wise to just sit around hoping creationism dies out with
them. As much as I'd like to, I don't think ignoring creationists is going to do
much good. There's a whole new generation growing up that knows next to
nothing about real science. It's a duty (I feel) for anyone informed to
constantly refute ill-educated minds in the public forum.
