What is it about creationists and/or Christians that upsets you so much ? You seem pretty worked up that we don't see your "obvious" proofs for macro evolution, but in the living of every day life does it make any difference to you what a creationist/Christian believes?
I'm really interested in why this seems to bother you. I also acknowledge that some Christians are pretty upset with the evolutionists.
You know that is a damn good question.. I hope you want the relatively long winded answer ?
Initially is wasn’t something I cared about all that much.
I admit I was SHOCKED to find this relatively TINY enclave of Americans that still believed in a 6,000 year old Earth and Biblical creation.. well I just put it down to US Fundamental Bible belt madness and moved on.
Then I was directed to some tapes by Kent Hovind. They were a VERY interesting bunch of tapes and at the time very compelling.
Here I was an atheist and an evolutionist having my worldview turned up side down. Could I have been fooled for so long. I did some research and some of the fundamental things Hovind said seemed RIGHT !
The geopolitical column measuring age of fossils and fossils measuring ages was a doosy.. circular reasoning at its WORST !
Then I researched further.. It became VERY clear that EVERYTHING Hovind said was WRONG. How could I have been fooled by him.. well he is VERY humorous well spoken and persuasive.
I then became annoyed that Hovind CONTINUED with his lies LONG after he should have known they were lies.. what was his agenda ???
During this time of research the obviousness of evolution became so clear that it is hard to believe it in still disputed by s very tine group of Christians. It also became a VERY interesting field that I research as a hobby.
My experience made me somewhat a crusader against the lies spread by Hovind and his ilk… I am passionate only in that I detest the spread of ignorance and lies.
You will find me equally passionate in regard to bigotry and human rights.. also (you may find oddly) in anti abortion.
