An excellent book on Evolution is Dawkins' book, "The Blind Watchmaker". Another one is the late Ernst Mayr's book, "What Evolution Is". Of course, if one has the time to read it, Darwin's book, "On the Origin of Species" is the ultimate resource (I've read it.). Amazon has it as a free download for Kindle owners.
Question for Cosby: When Noah's ark landed on Mt. Ararat in Turkey, how did all the kangaroos end up in Australia?
Sadly, Crosby cannot overcome his childhood indoctrination with the Genesis' myths. Worse, he and other religionists continue to indoctrinate impressionable children with these myths. For them, ignorance is truly bliss. If they had their way they would corrupt real science education with their usual babble; "God did it.".
Remember, this church is indoctrinating impressionable children with their views. Bigots making new bigots.
I feel fortunate to live in a country with an economic system such that people are unequally rich rather than some socialist country where people are equally poor.
Marx was wrong on Economics but was spot-on when he said that religion was the "Opiate of the masses".
I would be interested seeing a list of the percentage of freshmen at Chat. State and UTC who have to take remedial courses in Math, English, and Science because of low scores on their placement exams and further, a breakdown by school.
All of the diverse plant and animal life that exists today is the result of almost 4 billion years of Natural Selection. Sadly, many adults cannot overcome their childhood indoctrination with the Genesis' myths. Worse, churches continue to indoctrinate impressionable children with these myths. The Genesis myths are simply stories (metaphors) written by men to illustrate God's wrath against unbelievers and have no factual or historical basis. When will church leaders display the intellectual fortitude to publicly admit this and stop indoctrinating impressionable children with them?
Another creationist displaying his ignorance of how natural selection works. All plant and animal species today are transitional to whatever species Nature selects to follow and it's been going on for about 3.5 billion years. I worry that Evolution Science is not being emphasized enough in public school Science classes. It should be included when Science is first introduced to elementary school students.
Seems to be an excessive amount of publicity for maybe 5% of the population.
