Evolution Is Offensive, Your Honor

In an article on MSNBC, they state that Georgia wants to strike out the word “evolution” in schools to “biological changes over time.” I object, your honor, I surpassed puberty many years ago. It was horrifying, and the biological changes over me in time was similar to the black plague. One must really wonder, what is offensive about the word, “evolution?” Is it a curse now? I find it hard to believe that someone can swear at you with, “You evil evolution of a pig! Mongrels like you are an evolution to society!”

Now I know that a lot of people are getting their panties in a twist about the theory of Evolution and God (or insert your own deity here), but this is clearly overkill. Science is about truth, there’s no fiction in it. If science teaches us that a fossil is 12 million years old, then by golly it’s 12 million years old, no matter how blue in the face the Bible gets telling us otherwise. If man came from the seas as first a fish, then a monkey, then we need to find out why science tells us that, not why it proves the Bible wrong, or vice versa. The Bible is not a scientific tool, it’s a religious tool. It’s based on faith. Science and religion shouldn’t intermingle on a professional level, only on a personal level. A scientist can be a Christian, and I will applaud any that can be both, for it surely can’t be easy. I have a dear friend who is a microbiologist and a devout Christian, and the man is not only extremely smart, but a good person in every sense of the word. Striking out the word evolution won’t do anything good, it’ll just contribute to the ignorance of kids, and frankly we have enough kids who are ignorant to many facts in the world.

  1. The weird thing about this is that they aren’t talking about banning the /concept/, just the word. Bizarre.

  2. By banning the word, they hope to ban the concept as an ends to the means. I just think it’s a waste of time, and a cheap ploy by some people to get media attention.

  3. Political Correctness taken to ludicrous extremes by people who have nothing better to do that sit around on their useless butts thinking this rubbish up. It’s a shame they can’t put all this spare time to something useful.

  4. I agree horai, for example, actually fixing the school system, which is absolutely horrible in many areas. For example, the grading system, teacher’s low pay, the stupid “zero tolerance” policy, and so on.

    I do think science and religion can coexist. In the Bible, God and Jesus constantly taught lessons using parable…”Godly lessons in human concepts”.

    The Bible says god created the earth in seven days and science teaches us about the Big Bang and the eons it took for the earth as we know it to form. How long is a day for a omniscient, omnipotent being? We couldn’t even begin to grasp the concept, so why do we continue to think the Bible is literal?

    Science says man evlolved from a single cell organism into monkeys and then man. Why can’t that be the way God made us? I don’t believe the literal sense of god making man from dust, but if you think about it, science says the same thing…we started from almost nothing and eventually became what we are today…

    Once gain, the human mind can’t begin to grasp the ide of time for God, who has no “time”
