41. As always, they project their own beliers onto others....
Edited on Wed Feb-14-07 09:12 PM by sutz12
After all, the Creation story they like to push onto others, comes from the Book of Genesis, which is, I believe, an "ancient Jewish sect's beliefs." After all, it is supposedly written by Moses, who is a Jewish patriarch.

You can see the strategy they have been trying to take. Much like in Mann Ghoulter's book, they paste the label "Religion" on evolution so they can try to maneuver the courts into calling that a violation of separation of church and state.

They have totally failed to convince anybody with any common sense and the ability to engage in critical thinking that their patchwork brand of "Goddidit ID Creationism" is a real science. So in their dim witted ignorance, they have to accuse non-believers that science is a religion. Hey, everybody has a religion, right? Science must be a religion or so many people wouldn't 'believe' in it. Yup, it's a religion, just like Catholicism, or Judaism, etc.

In science, the 'monopoly' is based on evidence, proof, sceptical review, and rational thinking; silly stuff like that. To them, it's a religious conspiracy. It's the only way they can think.
