A few minutes ago, my friend and coworker called me from a bar in Portsmouth, NH. He read me something from The New York times, that personally, I found really disturbing. He found an article saying that 42% of Americans believe that intelligent design should be taught in schools. WHAT???!!! Intelligent design? Are you fucking kidding me? What is wrong with this country?
First thing people...It doesn't matter if some deity or advanced race created us or not! We have NO proof whatsoever that some all powerful intelligent being created us. We do however have proof for our natural evolution.
I guess the real problem here is the whole separation of church and state issue. We all decided many years ago that religious beliefs would not be taught in schools. BOTTOM LINE!! There is no changing this...We made a decision and we must all stick to it. Why do we need to stick to it? Well, because it solves that BIG ASS problem that we all had hundreds of years ago...Oppression by a religious group. Originally we came over here from Europe to escape this crap. Are we going backwards or what?
Point being people...It does NOT matter if an intelligent being created us. We do not know the answer, so we will not teach it! Wake up America! The right is taking control and if we do not get organized, we are going to watch as the new and upcoming generations get brainwashed into believing bullshit that has no real basis!
