Very.

Especially when it's someone you knew your whole life - you grew up beside this person, you shared their meals, you slept over at their house, you played endless rounds of Goldeneye on their N64 - but you went away to college for 4 short years and when you came back, they seem to have been swapped out by someone who has no concept of logic or rationality. You try to keep being friends, but they're suddenly sending you nonstop crap about 0bummer, UN plots to destroy Israel, and whatever other insanities of the day are being cooked up over at Breitbart.

Nor does it have to. Until the theists cough up some tangible evidence of the existence of a god, there is nothing that needs to be disproven.

nor can religion invalidate science,

Because science is real and religion is not.

so long as people on both sides of the argument remain rational. When either side abandons pragmatic reason for fanaticism, no one wins.

You can't be religious in this day and age without letting go of at least some of your pragmatic reasoning. NTTAWWT, mind you, as long as you don't try to turn your fairy tales into law or curriculum.

the head of the texas state board of education should be jailed for child abuse for poisoning the minds of the nation's children and hobbling their chances to compete with the rest of the world.

the fact that the christian taliban is in control of the education of our children should terrify anyone with a brain. if bullshiat like this is taught in our schools, we will be a third-world country in just a few generations.

What you just described is almost exactly my situation. Now, I did go to a christian school growing up, but damn if none of those people ever figured anything out. I see all their facebook posts about communism, socialism, etc. So many things that are easily debunked by simple google searches. They are incredibly anti-science and think that "expert" opinions carry no more weight than any other random crazy person. And these are adults. ADULTS believing in fairy tales, it's incredibly odd to watch from the outside.

But indoctrination absolutely works. Absolutely. It's a weird process to see once you're on the outside. I remember being on the inside, you're so insulated from the real world and are surrounded at all times by people who think exactly the same. You never question the ridiculousness of the ideas, because you can't even tell that they are ridiculous. They discourage any and all interaction with non-believers. It's a sad thing really.

I feel lucky to have gotten out, and it was education that saved me. I went to a great college with excellent professors, they taught me how to discriminate between bullshiat and fact. They taught me critical thinking. They didn't tell me what to think, they gave me the tools to decide. It's made all the difference.

The original question was "fark all you parents for doing nothing about your kids."

/having been my original question and all...

That's how I took it too. And my response was "fark you, I did wake up and invest time in my kids and their education." Apparently I am supposed to apologize for not waking up and investing time in other kids educations as well.

I bet all of these internet crusaders here are doing a lot of things about it too like organizing protests and registering voters and knocking on doors and contacting publishers, right everyone biatching about how me paying taxes isn't enough?


I'd imagine many are doing some something, and to be fair you knew what you typed was going to get a lot of bites.
If everyone takes just a little more time in their kids education, all the kids will benefit in the long run.
Texas get to make these choices because nearly everywhere else has wee little school boards for each municipality, so what about having each state amalgamate it's various boards and start making there own curriculum demands? With enough critical (sane) mass Texas is no longer the big player, and taa daa nearly derpless textbooks!

Scientists are flawed:

Environmentalists are then misguided,
Verification with carbon isotopes cannot be true
Evolution doesn't exist

The modern state of American politics is defined by one side that has two basic points of dogma:

1) Fark you, I got mine (in the case of those in the 47%, this is delusion)
and
2) I hate teh ghey and the brown, I want to push those vermin back under the rug where they belong.

I doubt that many of the "Earth is 9000 years old" types really and truly believe that junk. (There are True Believers but they're pretty few and far between.) But they've convinced themselves that "their" America has been hijacked by teh ghey and the brown, so they cast around for some kind of moral basis on which to base their hate and fear. T-Rex carrying arks, combined with derisive scoffing at the "junk science" of evolution and climate change, is apparently the best they can come up with.

The result is grocery clerks making $12 an hour convincing themselves that they are part of the Moral Job Creatin' Majority instead of the 47%. They believe that the GOP will stop giving the income tax they don't pay to teh ghey and the brown. They are like the old "better dead than red" crowd; they will pursue any course that prevents The Enemy from winning, even if it means mutual destruction.

There is no educating these people. The best we can hope for is that their kids will do better. Which is a pretty dismal hope.

cman: Uncle Tractor: cman: Communists arent militaristic? Wow, learn something new everyday

Oh, look; another moran who doesn't know the difference between communism and atheism.

Communists are intolerant of religious people.


That's not really accurate.

There are many communists who are themselves deeply religious. The entirety of liberation theology, the Catholic Worker Movement, Padre Gustavo Gutiérrez, Edward Bellamy, and arguably even Jesus could be called "communists," but are certainly not atheists.

Further, there were and are communists who were not at all critical of religion, even if they were not religious themselves. Something like 1/3 of the population of China follow Shenist and/or Taoist religion, and another 15-20% or so are Buddhists. Insofar as the religions do not act as a source of authority that confronts the government, the government doesn't seem to care too much.

I know that Stalin is usually cited as an example of a communist who attacked religion, but that's a severe over-simplification of the events. The history of the church in the Soviet Union is quite complex, and to some extent, the Russian Orthodox church (under Sergius I of Moscow) even officially endorsed Soviet authority. Americans typically hear only a very simplistic, almost cartoonish, version of Soviet history, and that's one of the reasons we never really understood them (which is one of the reasons so many of us grew up terrified of them). The real history of the USSR was far more complex (and far more interesting) than "bad guys doing evil."

GreatGlavinsGhost: lennavan: No one is forcing the private textbook companies to print derp. Nothing is forcing the blue states from purchasing derpy textbooks and nothing is stopping a new textbook company from publishing a textbook that matches reality.

That's not how the system works.


To move forward, you'll need a working understanding of capitalism. There's a difference between wanting to maximize profits by only developing a single textbook and being forced to publish exactly what the local school board in Texas says.

By the way, look at the edits being made versus what the textbook companies biatch about. Exactly how different do you think the Texas textbook would be from one we'd prefer up in the Northern states? The company seems to want you to think they would be 100% different.

Ultimately, the argument you are making is a financial one. A simple solution - according to your article, producing a new textbook would be $5 million. Nothing is stopping the blue states from getting together, splitting the $5 million cost and developing their own science text. I'd love my tax dollars to go to something like that.

I get it you want to blame Texas. Indeed Texas sucks. But Texas is not the only problem here and trying to sway Texans has to be about the least likely to succeed solution possible. Just ask Nobodyn0se.

Kurmudgeon: Fundie atheists are every bit as big a pain in the ass as any other fundie.


Yeah, remember that time those atheists killed thousands of people in terrorist attacks? Remember when atheists took over the country's law making bodies and put laws on the books to discriminate against theists?

Me neither.

This, right here, is a perfect example of what's wrong with our country today.

We are a society. Start farking acting like it.

Indoctrination, the Right rallies against it, even though they're the only ones doing it.

Hypocrisy, one of the three major pillars of Conservatism.

AlanSmithee: Alas, the movie itself is a a very depressing doc.
It must be draining for sensible Americans to be continuously fighting the creatards.


It wouldn't be so bad if it were only the creationists, but these days right wingers live in their own little alternate reality bubble regarding just about everything. It's just a theory right now, but as the idiocy, bigotry, and greed of the plutocrats and theocrats running the right are becoming clearer, I suspect the cognitive dissonance required for regular people to remain Republicans is slowly driving them insane. It would explain a lot.

WhyteRaven74: jehovahs witness protection: Michael Moore?

It's not his movie.


If his faculties are insufficient to figure out that much, I doubt the film will have much of an effect on him.

AdolfOliverPanties: Would have been better without the Michael Moore quote. Might have even suckered in a few people who thought "Finally, a movie that shows how creation is stronger than science and politics."

Instead, Creationists will see Moore's name and know to stay away.


You're assuming that creationists can read.

Confabulat: whistleridge: AlanSmithee: It must be draining for sensible Americans to be continuously fighting the creatards.

Very.

Especially when it's someone you knew your whole life - you grew up beside this person, you shared their meals, you slept over at their house, you played endless rounds of Goldeneye on their N64 - but you went away to college for 4 short years and when you came back, they seem to have been swapped out by someone who has no concept of logic or rationality. You try to keep being friends, but they're suddenly sending you nonstop crap about 0bummer, UN plots to destroy Israel, and whatever other insanities of the day are being cooked up over at Breitbart.

These aren't crazy morons met on Fark - these are people you know. And yet. And yet...

Hell it's even worse when you used to date them.


I bet. Thank God it's just old friends and my step sisters. Yikes.
