should promote common sense, logic, scientific fact and truth-telling. Attempting to
create respect for the religion-based nonsense in Creationism promotes none of
—Brice E. Buehler
Creationism the same respect as the
scientifically grounded theory of evolution (Soundoff, July/August 2014).
With all due regard to Diane
Flaaen’s letter to the editor,
Creationism ignores scientific fact and
places its stock in magical thinking and
Those sharing Ms. Flaeen’s opinion
built a museum teaching that human
beings and dinosaurs lived in the same
era. They display a model of a human
riding a dinosaur. Creationists claim
that evidence showing the earth to be
billions of years old is a hoax committed by god to “confound” humans. They claim pre-human remains,
such as “Lucy,” are fakes planted by non-believers.
Creationism is a religious belief system and certainly does not
“move this country forward.” A recent survey shows that children
who receive religious educations have greater difficulty separating fact
from fantasy than children not so exposed. Some of our schools are
now being allowed to teach Creationism to our children. These kids
are sure to be harmed by such preposterous teachings.
