Shutting down the creationists July 20, 2007

Good video here. I’ve watched each of these folks in videos, Eugenie C. Scott, Ken Miller, David Dreamer, et al. and they all make extremely good points in defense of science. I’ve even had some very nice email exchanges with Prof. Miller.

But as is always the case, the sum is greater than the parts. And this nine minute video proves it.

Prof. Barbara Forrest, PhD is a professor of philosophy, and she accurately sums up the creationists. They are people who cannot accommodate modern science and as she says “Even most aspects of the modern world.”

These are people who are too afraid to move forward. To afraid to think for themselves and decide that creationist dogma is just what I call it, dogma being pushed for many decades upon we people.

The other part that concerned me is the NSF man on the street studies. According to James L. Powell, PhD half the people think we lived with dinosaurs, while the other half question evolution. I wonder though, where does that leave me? I don’t believe we lived with dinosaurs and I sure as hell don’t question evolution as evidenced by my many posts on the subject.

I wonder what it is about religion that so captivates and imprisons the human mind. It saddens me to think of all the wasted cognitive effort involved in believing the unbelievable.
