Why is Creationism dangerous? | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it

If you follow Crocoduck at all, you’ve heard us talk about how Creationism is ridiculous, make fun of Creationist stupidity, and point out the mountains of evidence for evolution. Yet I’m sure some of our readers are thinking, “Yeah, but so what? What’s the big deal? Sure, it’s stupid; sure, it’s crazy; but it’s harmless, right?”

Neil deGrasse Tyson responds | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it

Neil deGrasse Tyson sent me the note reproduced below the line, which he intended to post as a comment. Since I’ve put up two posts within one week about his views on science and faith (here and here), I thought it only fair to elevate his comment to a full post, allowing everyone to see it easily. (His comment was intended to follow the first link given above.) I present it here without any response on my part. I have verified by email that this is indeed Tyson himself.

Being a Christian seems really confusing in this day and age and I have some legitimate questions. I know at least some of my morals will conflict with mainstream Christianity, so I'm hoping they will make a few compromises and still accept me. This is an open letter extending to any Christian or atheist who wishes to reply and shed some light on these questions.

It's really an issue of who is boss. Do I want to access the benefits of Christianity while maintaining sovereignty over my own life or do I want to yield to the sovereignty of God who created me and knows what is best for me? God is sort of like the parent who says, "You can do it your way if you want, but I know the outcome and you won't like it."

Victory for teachers who say that creationism is nonsense | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it

Yesterday, the Supreme Court “declined to hear an appeal Tuesday from a former high school student who sued his history teacher, saying he disparaged Christianity in class in violation of the student’s First Amendment rights.” The case, C. F. v. Capistrano USD, involved a high school student who was insulted that his history teacher, James Corbett, didn’t think much of creationism and religion. Some of Corbett’s comments (which deserve some sort of hero’s award) are:

Fischer: God Will Cure AIDS If Gays Stop Having Sex

A few weeks ago, we posted a video of Bryan Fischer denying that HIV causes AIDS and claiming it is all a scheme concocted by scientists in order to get research grants.

Since then, Fischer has continued to promote this position and earlier this week, Warren Throckmorton got Rick Warren to issue a statement decrying people like Fischer (and the "expert" he cites, Peter Duesberg) for promoting "quack science."
