    I sat watching this with disbelief, pity, and probably a little too much laughter running through me. You have to feel sorry for these misguided people. (And, I suppose sorry for those that feel the need to go out and protest, simply in order to ruin someone else's fairytale.

    I suppose it all depends upon whether you think that this is "harmless fun" or whether it's dangerous nonsense. Would you like your child to learn and believe this??

    Jesus! I hadn't even noticed that. Yeah the whole things messed up.

    Adam and eve were white Europeans. Noah used to throw some ball out back with Ham and his dinosaur buddies. They'd come round drink all the Gatorade, Noahs wife would be all like, "Noah when you gonna get outside and finish that Ark". There could be a sitcom in there somewhere I think.

    The way I see it there are two things wrong.
    1. Christians can be just as imaginative as anyone else.
    2. The scientific elite have spent the last 2 centuries developing a theory the whole world has fallen prey to.

    Yes, falling pray *(which I assume you meant) to reality is such a terrible thing.

    Making up fairy stories and trying to sell them as truth is blatant intellectual dishonesty, and is made worse by the fact that some people will indoctrinate their children with this crap, not giving them a chance...

    Talk about intellectual dishonesty; because someone believes in God and that He created everything, so you will trust science and believe in evolution?

    It is pure fiction that everything is evolving. You are intellectually blind.

    Although you are probably much brighter and better educated than I.

    Prove God exists. Go on, I double dare ya. Simple empirical evidence, please.

    I can show species evolving. The data is out there, both fossil evidence and direct observation.

    Believing in God is not a reasonable excuse for making up lies and attempting to indoctrinate others with them in order to make yourself feel better. Your belief in God should not logically lead you to the conclusion that current evolution is 'pure fiction' as you put it. There are only two possibilities:
    1. Somebody lied to you about it and you are passing on the lie.
    2. You made it up yourself because you are afraid the truth is incompatible with your beliefs.

    You know, I gotta be honest here. If it could be proven that anything is in fact evolving I'd believe it. That is, evolving, and not just adapting to environmental fluctuations.
    I obviously can't speak scientifically about biology or anthropology, but it is painfully obvious to me that there are huge gaps in the theory of evolution that can't be filled by assumption and speculation.

    But, it does trouble me that you know about something I don't, and while I may trash it, I can't deny the nagging doubt.
    That admission is off the record.

    Ac 9:5 And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.

    Just out of curiosity, do you know the meaning of this verse?

    What are you talking about? It is common knowledge that God is a white European.

    I don't like these "museums" either. I have said it before, Christians can believe a lie just as well as anyone else. Nobody has a corner on all the truth, and everyone believes something that isn't true and seeks to persuade others about it. It's the way the world is.

    I'm not qualified to speak directly to the science behind evolution, but when science is used to deny the existence of God, and that He created everything, then I reject the notion that evolutionary science, per se, is a viable reason to reject the truth that God created everything.

    I believe the universe is very old. How old? Nobody knows. But I believe that God created man and all other living things that we know exists in six literal days. If there is a God He is certainly able to do it!
