Re: “Idiots (Heart) Huckabee

Huckabee is on record saying that creationism should be taught in public schools; he has tried to spin this core belief by saying he's not against the teaching of evolution as a theory: "I think that they also should be given exposure to the theories not only of evolution but to the basis of those who believe in creationism …" (Republican debate, May 3, 2007). This alone should frighten everyone who refuses to swallow the nonsense that a giant invisible wizard not only created the entire universe in 6 days, but is responsible for everything that happens except the 'bad stuff'. (That 'bad stuff' is the fault of the "devil"... remember "the devil made me do it"?} I'm really not anti-religion, I'm just anti-stupid. The presence of religion, and the large (majority?) number of humans who claim to believe in this all-powerful magician, is certainly thought-provoking, but it seems to me it more honestly represents the deep fear much of humankind has of finding out there may just not really be a reason for our existence. That all of this could just be a 'fluke of nature' I guess scares the bejeezus out of most people. I say, let them believe what they want, but don't let them tell me what to think (read, say, view, listen to, write, draw, etc)--and that does NOT mean I believe the Bible should be taught in public schools as an equal to (or replacement of) science and reason. The POTUS may indeed have the power to inject religion into the State; we should all Pray that never happens.
