Subject: RE: BS: Young Earth Creationism
John, Chongo doesn't think the way I do at all on most stuff. Chongo is a loose cannon with a penchant for guns and violence. He goes to extremes with no remorse whatsoever, but this is counterbalanced somewhat by his virtues, which are: courage, guts, loyalty, and determination. His thoughts are strictly his own, however, I am just the scribe. Although I DO know how Chongo thinks, I don't find it necessary to agree with him on a lot of what he thinks. I suggest you take his comments in the spirit they were intended in. ;-) (as satire)

Don - I'm just talking about stuff that interests me, that's all. I can't see any particular reason why creationism should be taught in a science class, and I'm not suggesting that it should be. On the other hand, I expect there are a number of different ideas out there about creationism, some primitive, some more sophisticated, and some of them are probably tied in with existing science to a considerable extent, so who am I to say?

What I can't figure out is why anyone here is worrying about it all that much, and fighting with other people about it, instead of focusing on something that really impinges on their lives in a much more direct and substantial manner. ;-) I know I'm not worried about it. I don't talk about any of this stuff because it worries me, I just find it interesting to explore different avenues of conventional thought and observe how people get rigidly wedded to either one form of conventionality (traditional science) or another form of conventionality (traditional religion) and then they fight with each other about it. They get quite fierce about it. My goodness, what a lot of energy spent to so little effect.
