OIL AND WATER

The Separation of Crazy and Religious

I’m not really a religious guy. I think it all sounds kinda stupid and crazy. I don’t like overly religious people. They scare me. Sometimes I’d like to help them, but it just never seems quite worth the effort.

Trying to explain something that is beyond a person’s understanding is always akin to banging your head against the wall and just about as productive. People who won’t open their mind to all possibilities are simply led like sheep to the shears. These brain-dead devotees hear what their leaders say and they obey because thinking for themselves is hard. It’s why a crazy leader can convince a bunch of people into drinking the Kool-Aid.

I understand that evolution is a theory. There are plenty of theories about our universe. Some things are better understood, some not so much. Some are absolutes and become truths such as the FACT that the Earth revolves around the sun. Copernicus said as much and was ex-communicated because his THEORY was anti-religious. His theory, of course, was proven as fact. Did the religious leaders at anytime say they were wrong? I don’t think so.

We don’t need religious dogma in our public schools. Of course, there are always exceptions to the rule (i.e. Christmas, Easter). However, teaching a religious point of view in a science class is WRONG.

Religion and Science never, ever work well together. It’s oil and water.
