It's fascinating reading. The level of raw dishonesty to which these followers of Jesus have stooped is mind boggling.

Why are the homosexual and atheist freaks so afraid of humans being created?

Such philosophical concepts say everything about their lives is wrong, not even considering the earlier deaths, increased disease and long history of abuse and slavery their atheist, pagan ideas have imposed and maintained.

I strongly suspect this particular fundie to be a sock. Unless his location happens to be in the Bible Belt and they all so happened to wander onto this little corner of the interwebz.

Yes, I care that science education is attacked by Dark-Age loving religious fundamentalists. Stupid people mistake that as caring about their baseless religious opinions and that therefore I am doing everything in my power to deny "The" divine creator of the universe.
