Re: The Nightmare
"It's always entertaining to read about these creationists. Unfortunately it will be a nightmare if their views become part of kids education"
Unfortunately it is already part of some kids' education, and they will go on to be the next generation of whackos; but how can we counter this kind of intense propaganda? Religious leaders are, in effect, telling their flock that they will have an eternity of suffering if they don't follow their rules or an eternity of bliss if they do; it's hard for the rationalists to say "we can't promise anything one way or the other, and all evidence says this life is all you get" and make it sound attractive.
