Depends if he supports pushing his demonstrably bollox bollox in public schools. In which case it still doesn't matter what he believes, but it matters that his beliefs are affecting other people's kids lives.
He can teach his own kids to be as ignorant as he is, but he doesn't have the right to do that to others.
Unfortunately, atheism is become the state religion in America. Just sit in any high school biology classroom and try to engage in an honest debate about evolution. My daughter was openly ridiculed and yelled at for questioning that man evolved from apes. This is not "science"... It is indoctrination. Public education has become a farce.

Since you're so in love with this religion of yours and want to teach it to every impressionable child, I would challenge you to name one magnanimous person who is or was an atheist.

Why do you even care?
You think that children are nothing more than descendants from apes...the products of blind mutations...

That's because you have to be a total nut to question something which you know nothing about.

If her approach at all mirrored your approach to the problem here then she got what she deserved. If she had serious questions then that is too bad. That would have been wrong on the part of her costudents and teacher. Since you seem to be proud of her it was probably sadly the former.

You reply with "That's because you have to be a total nut to question something which you know nothing about."

By that statement you support ridiculing children that have questions. That is sad.

I remember when I was in school and sometimes a student would try to ask questions as a diversion, not because they wanted to learn anything. If HST's daughter acted the same way that HST has here she got what she deserved. If she honestly had doubts and was willing to learn then it was wrong for them to yell at her.

At heart you are a Marxist...
You are not interested in discovery...only in carrying on with established dogma that conforms to our worldview.
You attempt to control the beliefs of there through whatever means is necessary, including intimidation and fraud.

A scientist welcomes debate. Questioning established dogma is the heart and soul of science.
You seem to think that anyone who doesn't blindly believe in the evo-fairy is "anti-science." If all scientists embraced your ethic, we'd still be in the dark ages.

Kitten, you and SZ are both Marxists.
You're interested in indoctrination, not teaching.
If evolution is so soundly supported by scientific evidence, why do you justify intimidation against those who don't blindly accept?
The fact is, evolution cannot stand on its own. The only way it can be defended is through outright deception.
My six year old grandson understands that a worm cannot evolve into a lizard or a peacock or a man.
You, however, think he is stupid for not blindly accepting your idiotic fairytales.

The truth is man didn't evolve from apes, apes and man evolved from a ape like ancestor. We call them ape/hominins, or proto-hominins that led to hominids and Hominidae
that led to chimps.

On one side of the fence there is HTS and Jimbo and on the other side of the fence there is Aura Mytha and Kitty. All playing the same part of being idiots with out a cause that do more harm to their belief than they do good. While each think the other is the biggest idiot when in fact they are equal. LOL

There you go again confusing science with religion. Your inane comments show you have absolutely no concept of what evolution is except for what you parrot from creationism websites.

Not much really, just illustrating that when your thinking is imprecise your logic also becomes flawed.
English origin England = English belongs to England.
Christianity origin Judaism = Christianity belongs to Judaism.
Since I'm German/French/English/Irish/Sc ot/, I should "belong to" paganism, as my ORIGINal ancestors almost certainly practiced?
That was then. Christianity are now in the majority.

That is your excuse for ignorance? That only substantiates the fact that the majority of people are below average intelligence, Charlie.

English originated on the island of England. That was then. Now a huge number of English speaking Christians are only able to find England on a world map with Google a lot of luck. Hell, half of those wouldn't even be able to find it on a map of the British Isles.
