I would have the state suing me so fast.
Today we're going to talk about creationism, class. The main gist behind it is what's known as Intelligent Design. For instance, if you had never seen a watch before but found one in a field, you would assume that it was designed and made by something more advanced than it (in this case humans) and not naturally occurring. This is known as irreducible complexity. Thus humans make watches, but something greater and more advanced makes humans, animals, and the rest of creation - they maintain that the various systems could not evolve on their own without a guiding hand. Now of course, there's a few flaws. Number one is that no matter how much you want to, you can't call this scientific theory. Number two is creationism contradicts itself by stopping at whatever made creation. There is nothing more complicated than what made the creator of reality although by its tenets there should be. Number three, creationists like to say that there are a lot of flaws in the Theory of Evolution but never stop to think about the flaws in their proposed system. And that will be what we mainly focus on today - the contradictions found in the main source book that can't even get its own stories right. The other problem with flaws is that like they say about scientists not all agreeing about Evolution, not all creationists agree with each other so we'll be spending a lot more time learning about what some creationists think who are outside the mainstream of Judeo-Christian creationists, which I'm sure the government of our state would like me to focus on, but that wouldn't be fair. So first, one of my favorites, the Aztecs. Now they believed that the blood of their gods bathed the Earth creating corn, and from this corn came from the first people. Thus the importance of blood sacrifice and corn in many meso-American cultures. Let's move on now to the Kahlarhi Bushmen... JIMMY! PAY ATTENTION! THIS IS SCIENCE! Now, the Bushmen...
