How Creationism Imprisons the Mind

How Creationism Imprisons the Mind | Science vs Religion | Scoop.it
Intellectual freedom is one of humanity’s greatest gifts—and biggest burdens. Our ability to ask questions, to test ideas, to doubt is what separates us from our fellow animals. But doubt can be as terrifying as it is liberating. And it’s the terror of doubt that fosters the toxic, life-negating cult...

RDFRS: Let’s change the rhetoric. Evolution and climate change as belief systems?

RDFRS: Let’s change the rhetoric. Evolution and climate change as belief systems? | Science vs Religion | Scoop.it
We must stop talking about facts in science as belief systems. It is said; all to often by educated or enlightened people in the media that they believe in climate change and the same rhetoric is often used for evolution. There is a problem with the public understanding of science and because of this lack of understanding, certain religious people have been allowed to use science (sic) as a tool for proselytising their faith to audiences that do not know better. To hear educated and enlightened people in the media say they believe in evolution or climate change; or they believe the earth is 4.54 billion years old is at best disappointing and at worst defeatist because we know these things to be facts. To say that you believe in evolution etc. gives those who do not understand a counter argument, a freedom of ignorance almost, it gives them the option to not believe; and this is part of the problem.

Unprecedented Attack On Evolution 'Indoctrination' Mounted In Missouri

Unprecedented Attack On Evolution 'Indoctrination' Mounted In Missouri | Science vs Religion | Scoop.it
A Missouri lawmaker has proposed what ranks among the most anti-evolution legislation in recent years, which would require schools to notify parents if "the theory of evolution by natural selection" was being taught at their child's school and give them the opportunity to opt out of the class.

The bill had its first public hearing Thursday after being introduced in late January.

State Rep. Rick Brattin (R), who sponsored the bill, told a local TV station last week that teaching only evolution in school was "indoctrination."

"Our schools basically mandate that we teach one side," he told KCTV. "It is an indoctrination because it is not objective approach."
