Back to the……Middle Ages

Supporters of the theory of evolution battle with proponents of "intelligent design" in a US court today in what is considered a crucial cultural duel for American education.
A group of parents in the small town of Dover, backed by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), is seeking to overturn a decision by the local school board insisting that intelligent design - the claim that complex organisms have been designed rather than evolved in response to natural selection - must be included in the curriculum
This is totally preposterous. I might as well argue that humans were created by a huge blue bunny that lives in the sky and thus we should venerate carrots or that we were created by a flying spaghetti monster (see post)
It seems to me that recently we are definitely going backwards and entering another dark age. Fundamentalist religion is once again raising its ugly head and threatening the well being of all us atheists. From suicide bombers sprouting like mushrooms in Muslim countries to wacko creationists declaring war on the world in the US, the world seems every day filled evermore with insane religious freaks. All we need now is people to start burning books and killing people on the stake and Torquemada would feel right at home.
Its like all that bollocks when the last pope died. We are talking about a man who says condoms don’t work, premarital sex is a deadly sin and that homosexuals will burn in hell and yet, they made it out as those he was some sort of saint. The current one is even worse! Last week he was on TV pontificating about how we should give more money to the poor and at the same time he had on his fingers enough gold rings to feed half of Africa. The day he sells his diamond encrusted throne and his half a million euro pope mobile I will start listening to what he says.
It is time the atheist hordes arise and overthrow our religious overlords. Long live our secular creed and thank god I am an atheist!

strange. I've always thought that we were created by a huge bunny.

It is strange! I have always thought the same thing. Must be true, then.

The implications of the findings from this court are very concerning and potentially, far reaching.

Another major concern is the bishops gathering at the Vatican to discuss refusing communion to politicians who pass laws that violate church doctrine. Considering we (Canada) have recently passed a bill allowing gay marriages the repercussions facing our leaders may set us back a couple of decades.

I've also never bought into the Mother Theresa= saint thingy either. She was nasty. A perfectly vile little creature, who was documented to deny pain medication to people dying of cancer. She also had no regard for reproductive health and freedom.
