Natural Selection

Posted: January 29, 2013 in Uncategorized

Read this morning about how various Christian Right groups had succeeded in getting their belief system incorporated into public school science curriculums. The article discusses how teaching these Bible based “truths” can have an impact on the future of children’s education, effectively eliminating them from participating in a science based carrier path. It struck me that their anti-evolution doctrine will in fact result in the very thing they preach against, natural selection. As these teachings will subjugate believers to the backwaters of society and result in their eventual near extinction. (I would hope) The unfortunate side effect is these believers will take with them some kids who might have otherwise been vital functioning members of society. There in lies the reason for a combative stance against funduhmentalists.
