Sure.
It matter to me what others believe because we live in a representative democracy. You vote. You vote for people who can and do affect my family by making laws. I want those who make laws for me to be as intelligent as possible and as secular as possible.
If you are a very religious person then chances are you prefer to vote for people who also believe similar to the way you believe. You stated that you reject the Theory of Evolution, and probably the idea of evolution itself. That tells me you are scientifically illiterate and possibly anti-intellectual. So you are going to be prone to vote for people who share those ideas. Bachamann, Santorum, Rick Perry, and other idiots who wouldn't know the business end of a book if you smacked them in the face with it.
I read a quote from an author, I can't remember who it was. He said it best, I think. He said he cares what others believe because he does not want to live in a nation of stupid people.
I agree totally.
On the contrary my friend, evolution has been taught in schools for many years,so we all have been educated in that fiction- U.S. public schools have always made an effort to stay current with modern science. Since Darwin published his "Origin of the Species" in England in 1859, it can be assumed that public schools in the U.S. began teaching the principles of evolution soon afterward--perhaps within a decade or so.

It is simply fair to teach the bible. But you that swallowed and devoured with over zealous appetites for fairy tale education,are now afraid that this generation will question the nonsense they have been taught about evolution.

No Thanks
Not to argue with your or anyone, but is your
free will that you must deal with, no one else
can control it but you. However, I never said
that chritofacist or that christofacism either
is not a word, I only said providing whether or
not the word was a real word. There is a lot I
don't agree with in the Roman Catholic Church.
Vice President Biden is no better than anyone
else when It comes to his free will, he only
answers for his own the same as we as individuals
answer for our own. I don't need You Tube to act
as my guide, I have the Holy Bible and it has and
will serve many a lot more than You Tube ever will.
As for your "No thanks", you're still welcome.

In the 50's grade schools had posters of ape to man charts. But little was said about it in school. But the Big Bang theory was taught in science. The 1960's was the real beginning of evolution and the big bang theory in public school : Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS) textbooks
Work in genetics culminating in the 1937 publication of Genetics and the Origin of Species by Theodosius Dobzhansky, combining Mendelian genetics with Darwinian natural selection, and explaining, through neutral mutations, the source of the variation upon which evolution acted, led to a synthesis that brought together disparate fields of biology and other sciences into a strong, coherent explanation of evolution.[18] A campaign ensued, urging schools to teach the "fact" of evolution,[19] and in the 1960's, the federally supported Biological Sciences Curriculum Study and biology text books were introduced, promoting evolution as the organizing principle of biology.[21] The belief in the power of science among biologists was running especially high: One of the prominent creators of the modern synthesis, Julian Huxley, made a religion of humanism, saying that a "drastic reorganization of our pattern of religious thought is now becoming unnecessary, changing from a god-centered to an evolutionary-centered pattern",[22] and advocating the use of science to further expand human capacities.s:

Even though evolution had been around more than a century ,it was really the 60's that screwed up the minds of this generation. so much for "lack of education on evolution "! We have enough on that fable to write our on books. But thank God that some of us survived this forced on teaching of "man came from apes ,the world was created by hurling meteorites. Now those who taught that same theory,have changed their minds ,and now state that man did not come from apes,and they also are starting to dispute their own big Bang Theory. So much for knowledge of evolution! They can not even believe this garbage themselves!!

Neither the theory of Evolution of how life evolved and the Scientific theory of how life came into existence"which science has not been able to explain or duplicate' nor can you explain or duplicate,has been able to refute that which I have experienced personally.That which I have tested and experienceced,I know to be real.
The theories you use to try and convince me that I am wrong,and on which your beliefs are based,completely fail to refute whatI believe to be true,again,based on personal experience.
Neither can YOU refute my beliefs.Therefore your inability to convince me that I am being illogical,,,,For which you have no factual basis,as you have no facts that can contradict what I experienced and can ONLY reject them based on the theories to which you subscribe. Theories are not facts

My beliefs and reasons for my faith ARE NOT BASED ON a THEORY,
but instead on tested factual experiences...

Still in all,I can understand how you feel,as I,at one time ,was an agnostic and once felt the same way as you do now.
As aresult,I consider you an adversay,not an enemy

It isn't science's goal to refute your beliefs. The goal of science is to understand (primarily) and to explain (secondarily). That's all. Your beliefs (aside from elections and taxes) are irrelevant.
I know you Christians are hung up on this (pun intended), but you are not being persecuted.

I'm not using theories to try to convince you that you're wrong. I'm using simple logic. You reject science because it is incomplete (even though it does have substantial supporting evidence) and you replace it with faith (which has no supporting evidence). That is illogical. I understand that you have strong feelings about this, but that is not the same as evidence. It wouldn't exist in a laboratory nor would it exist in a court of law. It's not evidence. You use terms like "tested factual experiences", but what you've experienced is not evidence it's just something you've felt and have strong emotions about.

I guess I would have more respect for you if you were to admit that which everyone else already knows. Faith, by definition, is believing something despite a lack of evidence. Faith, by definition, is illogical.

And, by the way, I am not an agnostic. I am an atheist. To some there's no distinction. And it may be semantics, but I do not believe there is a god.
