I just wanted to wish everyone a happy Darwin day. Modern biology, modern science, and our enlightened civilization owe him a lot. It is imperative that we recognize Darwin’s theory of evolution as a turning point for science and the beginning of the enlightened age that we live in (though progress is still being made). I would like to make a statement today that has been made before: creationism is a MYTH. Most of the world is past the point of believing in myths and the sooner that believers of this myth can get over themselves and open their minds to the amazing world of science, the sooner that can appreciate the incredible world and universe we live in.
I just saw a mind blowing video on physics and dark matter yesterday that raises so many awesome questions, that if somebody would have come up to me right then and said the word “creationism” I would have slapped the teeth out of their mouth. There is so much cool stuff about science and evolution that answer many “why’s” and raise many more “why’s and how’s” that there is no room for holding on to myths. Apparently a poll showed that 46% of Americans believe in creationism. People are entitled to their beliefs, but to me believing in creationism is just more of this. (All three links are awesome, but if you click on only one, make it this one.)
