Creationism in America; It's Still Funny #News #Religion

Noah's Ark in Kentucky featuring many of the dumbest motherfuckers in America.

However, the province of dumb motherfuckers isn't limited to America's new Boat People, the Creationists no-one wants living next door.

Fundamentalists are vowing to make a last stand for God in Dayton, Tenn., on July 14 when a new statue will be installed on the courthouse lawn. Going up alongside a likeness of William Jennings Bryan is a depiction of Clarence Darrow, Bryan’s pro-evolution adversary in Dayton’s historic Scopes Monkey Trial of 1925.

The creationist organizing the protests is threatening to bring in a militia to thwart installation of the Darrow statue, which she calls an insult to God and Christians. It will take a lot more than that, though, to stop Americans’ growing acceptance of evolution and apparent shift away from the strict creationist view of the origin of the species.

New polling data show that for the first time in a long time there’s a notable decline in the percentage of Americans — including Christians — who hold to the “Young Earth” creationist view that humankind was created in its present form in the past 10,000 years, evolution playing no part.

USA Today:  Creationism support is at a new low. The reason should give us hope.

There's one tiny detail our reporter has failed to, well, report since John Scopes got his ass kicked in the Monkey Trial and evolution did not prevail.  (WIKI:  Scopes Trial)

William Jennings Bryan was the slack-jawed shitbird who won the trial but he was just another politician trying to sleaze into the White House based on his support for fundamentalism.  He did win the trial but God killed him shortly thereafter.  Tell you what, Bill:  just think of it as evolution in action ... and you're not in it.  No White House for you, Pimp Boy.

There are few things making more of a joke of America than Creationism and we thank them.  Watching the America's Cup yacht race was cool but watching the stupid shit Creationists do is priceless and they create a global embarrassment.

The Ten Commandments are specific about the sin of making graven images (i.e. idols) ... so then they make an idol (i.e. statue) for the Ten Commandments and put it on the Courthouse steps.  Then they go completely ripshit if you damage the idol since they look at that act like it's the same as pissing on God's feet.  You may find a contestant for "Jeopardy" in that lot one day but it hasn't happened yet.

Even so, if you will judge the Creationists and of course you will since they're easy and no-one likes them, it's better if you actually know the history rather than dancing blithely past it.  Scopes lost; fuckin' deal with it.

"All that remains of the great cause of the State of Tennessee against the infidel Scopes is the formal business of bumping off the defendant." - H.L. Mencken

Note:  the verdict was turned over later on a technicality.

You best bet for wisdom is still to visit with the Lady Who Likes to Sit in a Tree.
