Why are religious freaks so desperate to force their beliefs into our schools?

If you want religion, pay for a Christian school, otherwise stop annoying us with your stupidity

if they don't keep in the public eye they may lose the subsidy for their faith and it would fade away like so many other myths...
this is how cults work.

.......... The Heart of the Matter

Many scholars scoff at the thought that the world was created by God in six days .. But .. this is exactly how Scripture reveals the beginning of the universe and of humankind ... In fact .. Godís creation of the first man and woman is one of the earliest truths recorded ... in the Holy Bible ... Regrettably .. following directly on its heels is the sad account of Adam and Eveís fall into sin ... Four simple words say it all ... from creation to corruption ... Instead of .. obeying the clear warnings of their Creator ... Adam and Eve deliberately and willfully .. chose to rebel ... And weíve been living with the consequences ever since
... humanity is .. mentally confused .. emotionally afraid .. and spiritually dead .... The good news .. HOWEVER ... is that God didnít abandon us in our rebellion .. In mercy and grace ... He provided the way out of our self-made mess .. through His Son .. Jesus Christ ....

.......... Discovering the Way

1 ... How It All Started ... Historically (Selected Scriptures from Genesis)... The first few chapters of Genesis provide an overview for all of human history .. creation .. and instruction .. temptation and corruption

2 ... Where It All Led ... Theologically (Selected Scriptures from Genesis and Romans).. The temptation and corruption caused by sin led to tragic consequences for Adam and Eve ... specifically .. and affects creation today .. universally

.......... Starting Your Journey

What does all this mean personally ?... It means you have a problem ... youíre a sinner .. and your end is death (Romans 5:12)... Thatís the bad news .. The good news .. and the solution to your problem ...[ not a religion but a person ]... Christ died to pay for your sin and rose from the grave to give you righteousness and life (5:17)... Do you believe that ?... Y/N

With good reason.

Sorry, you said religion wasn't to be discussed, right? Only science, reason and logic? Except your post was you admitting your "scientific alternative" was Goddidit with magic.

Which means I was right - there is no "scientific theory" of ID after all.

Fundies. Love to pretend they give a crud about science when in reality they're just biting their tongues because all they really wanna do is shout "PRAISE THE LORD!!!"

Then they do. And it costs them scientific credibility. And court cases.

Which is precisely its problem.

It still says the Earth is a flat square circle and God magically poofed everything in six days and condemned all of humanity because of a petty argument with naked man and woman and talking lizard over a pomegranate.

Even worse it shows that His-truth came in as a lying creatard.

He claimed to want to have a reasoned conversation and then very quickly went into a dishonest creatard debating style.

I should have known he was a creatard by the way that he reacted to the term before it was even applied to him.

Of course not all creationists are creatards, almost any that care enough to debate the subject are. To debate a subject you need to learn the other sides point of view. If you don't learn it you will usually lose the debate. Creatards seem to fear to learn our point of view since they instinctively know that to learn how evolution works makes one an evolutionist.
