Come on, fellowship. I have religious beliefs (which means I honestly believe them to be true), but I understand that they have nothing to do with science. What I don't understand is why creationists/young earthers haven't figured out why other people don't take them seriously. For example, one minute dinosaurs are explained as a 'test from God,' the next there's a museum with a saddle on a triceratops. How are we supposed to take that seriously?
I don't care what others believe in so far as origins. I am not shoving my view on anyone. What I find to be sad is to insult an individual who believes something different than the masses.
One reason I have an Apple computer is that I think differently than the average lazy slob.
One reason I drive a Diesel car that gets 42 mpg which is in the minority in this country is for the same reasons. It is not because I am a lazy fat slob.
I do not respect those who treat perfectly kind and thoughtful people with contempt and rudeness just because they think different than the masses no matter what the subject matter is.
It reminds me of hick Texans out in east texas that pour out French wine because the French were against the war in Iraq.
I think some of the evolutionists here are true bigoted haters of someone who has a different view.
JUST LIKE THE REDNECKS IN EAST TEXAS.
I am not in the mood for "come on Fellows" this evening. This country has gotten fat and lazy enough as it is. I personally respect independent and thoughtful kind individuals who think through things. I expect you guys to have a minimum level of some kind of respect or why not just admit you are really 12 year olds..
