Y is for Young Earth Creationism

The religious right does a lot of things to piss me off.
The denial of human rights to other not like themselves, their near blind hatred.

But the thing that gets under my skin the most is their complete denial of of science.
The worse of the lot are today's topic.

Y is for Young Earth Creationism

According to Wikipedia, Young Earth Creationism is the belief that the Earth is only about 6000 years old and all life was created in the Biblical 6 days. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Young_Earth_creationism

I should not have to mention that is notion is completely insane.

Yet this special brand of stupidity is widely followed and believed by plenty of people these days.  It was on the decline, but in the Theocracy that they want to make America, they are on the rise.
Now normally I wouldn't care about what a bunch of lunatics have to say, but when they want to infect schools and children's minds.

It still happens. Just have a look at Tennessee.

The evidence against the Young Earth creationists is so overwhelming is almost like talking to a Flat Earther. But at least the Flat Earthers know they are crazy.
