Scientific American: 15 Answers to Creationist Nonsense

A truly great refutation of the ignorant gibberish that anti-science people try to use to refute evolution. I tend to get more than a little pissed off about all this creationism/"intelligent design" crap because it's not just people trying to insert their religion into other people's lives, which happens all the time. What I can't stand is trying to make children ignorant. If you want to teach your own children ignorant garbage like humans lived with dinosaurs and the Grand Canyon was formed in a week, I don't like it but I'll live with it because they're your children. More than likely they'll figure it out when they get older. But when you try to push your idiocy on other people's children, that's too much. We need children who can think and reason and who undestand the world around them, not kids who have been abused by a minority of adults' broken view of the world. Teaching kids about creationism is like teaching them about horoscopes and tarot cards and does nothing but harm.
