Many have asked which one, usually to no avail or a bs answer.

If you teach one version of creation over a different version of creation, is this not racist? Who decides whose culture is valid and whose is invalid?

I dont think it would be racist to discount any religion over another though, I would venture to say that there are lots of people from all races who practice most mainstream religions.

There are, however, many different theories of creation. The Christian religion has their belief which is different from the Muslim belief which is different from the North American First Nation's beliefs and so on and so on.

I feel this is the perfect example of why creation should never be taught in schools, at least not as science. As another course of study I feel that is best left to college level courses, comparative religion, or theology...ect.

Re: Call it what you will...

The end result is that you are picking the belief system of one ethnic group over the belief system of another. Is it right to subordinate the myths and values of one people over another group? This type of prejudice preceeds brainwashing as it asks the citizen to ignore their set of beliefs for one that is fed to them as "truth".

kind regards,

HI,

My point is that not all religions are not exclusive to any one race or ethnic group, some might be, but most I can think of are not. Christianity is a fair mix of all races. There are many Asian Muslims as well as African and other races as well....ect

I think,as was said earlier, bigoted is probably a better description.

I can assure you that people who are predominately of Mongoloid, Negroid, and Caucasoid origin do exist. I'm not sure what the point of denying that would be.

Sorry, but I have to call you out on this one. Race is an arbitrary classification and as such, does not exist as a classification with any scientific value.

You may be technically right, not sure, but to most people that hear the term racism, they think of KKK, segregation, apartheid, words like nigger, spick, wop, slope, white trash....ect. I sure dont think of the christian who hates Islam or people hating all Catholics because some of their priest molested children.

I live in the south, NC, That might be a limiting factor for me because I look at racism in the classical sense of some people hate me because I am white, and some white people hate blacks...and everyone else who isn't white by their standards.

I could be wrong.

Re: Evolved Warts
I realize that as a believer in Darwinism logic may not be your strong point

Wow 3 post in at EvC and you are already insulting people...That might be a record.

Rule 10...The sincerely held beliefs of other members deserve your respect. Please keep discussion civil. Argue the position, not the person.

It is hard to do this and most of us fall short of this goal, but it does help to try and be civil.

I could as easily say that I question your logic because of your belief in god, but it gets us no where does it?

And it is being done to further YOUR whackadoodle religio (yes, Darwinism is a religion)-political agenda.

Just because you say "Darwimism" is a religion doesn't make it so.
