SQUATLO published a post about the Christian reaction to the new TV show Cosmos, hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson, which is running on the Fox channel (also National Geo.)

This brought to mind a partial commentary by Isaac Asimov titled The Threat of Creationism:

…tens of millions of Americans, who neither know nor understand the actual argument for – or even against – evolution, march in the army of the night with their Bibles held high.  They are a strong and frightening force, impervious to, and immunized against, the feeble lance of mere reason.

What more can be said?

  1. Yeah, don't confuse me with the facts, my mind is made up!!

  2. I know these people and to hear their arguments against evolution just doesn't make sense to me. They are intelligent enough in every other way, well maybe except for gay rights, but when it comes to God they believe whatever their current pastor tells them. For some reason, they just are not able to think for themselves. It truly puzzles me.


COMMENT: Ben Franklin said, "I imagine a man must have a good deal of vanity who believes, and a good deal of boldness who affirms, that all doctrines he holds are true, and all he rejects are false."
