    Thanks in part to RJ Hinds, there's plenty of creationist talk on this site - Evil-lution or not.

    But what comes with creationism? - What does this group of Christians want, for education, schools, laws, society? Aside from a re teaching of biology.

    And all the opponents on here - what do you fear would come after creationism was taught in schools, what is it a stepping stone too?

    What do you see as the Creationist Agenda? I'd like to know what you think. S

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wedge_strategy

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_right

    Are two sources.

    A victorious Christian Right will outlaw abortion (treating it as murder), turn back the woman's movement, support only abstinence as a means of birth control and STD control, outlaw homosexuality, degrade K-12 public education in science, insert prayer into the curriculum, and also support Evangelical Christian schools and home schooling, by federal and state funding. Churches and other 501(c)(3) tax-exempt Christian organizations will openly engage in and contribute to political campaigns and lobby for legislative changes. Generally speaking, laissez faire capitalism will be supported or at least tolerated, and interventionist foreign policy will direct federal money to Christian missionary work, which will lead to political and military intervention when overzealous missionaries are persecuted by foreign governments who see them as a threat to their power.

    The flip side is that congregations will become dominated by politics. Going to church will be the same as going to a combination political rally/local government meeting.

    In short, all hell will break loose, which will trigger the End Times.

    it seems controversial to point out here but evolution was pretty / very evil science til 1945 - all bad things were justified with it. Maybe creationists just don't like that?

    It's not controversial... It's just wrong.

    It's like claiming that the earth being a sphere is a controversial topic...
    Just because some nut jobs think it's flat.

    Evolution is not and has never been an 'evil' science, a point that has been
    made over and over as various ignoramuses claim otherwise time and time again.

    Yes I think they have an agenda... But re-writing test books is bad enough all on it's own.

    I want to clarify that IMO much of this bad stuff isn't so much a conscious "agenda" in the sense of a conspiracy, as it is a cluster of predictable outcomes of a takeover of US state and federal governments. It would also be tempered somewhat by incompetence, infighting, and corruption.

    I don't think it's possible to create life through the 'back door'. Like RJ so intelligently pointed out awhile back, you have to wait until the back door evolves into a vagina.

    Teaching creationism in our schools will lead to a dumbing down of our youth which will lead to our economic downfall. Education, not bombs, is the way to ensure sustained economic growth for any nation. I think those who believe in creationism are terribly misguided religious nuts. Most Christians, especially those with more than an eighth grade education, believe in evolution and science.

    Yes the question is "What do you see as the Creationist Agenda?"

    Maybe RJ has a point. You'd think by now he would've evolved a brain.

    Funny how he uses youtube to 'prove' his delusions.

    Using youtube I can also prove:

    Big Foot exists
    http://youtu.be/BzZWqRdkoBI

    Mermaids exist
    http://youtu.be/tJ0ZskVRO_s

    the Loch Ness Monster exists
    http://youtu.be/2-Q-IwUijoc

    Vampires exist
    http://youtu.be/64namgQWBZQ

    Aliens exist
    http://youtu.be/VYWF_YboLt8

    Werewolves exist
    http://youtu.be/n0Z-j8C4xqQ

    Fairies exist
    http://youtu.be/EwHNvpeB2yA

    UFO's exist
    http://youtu.be/hjfsuBY48c0

    Ghosts exist
    http://youtu.be/EzZI16Z13dw

    Zombies exist
    http://youtu.be/bvaXRGTmHeo

    etc. etc. etc.

    I couldn't find any proof that RJHinds exists, however. The rumors of him being a cartoon may be true.
