    There are a few things you can expect to see on the evening news nearly every night:

    murder, rape, theft, and clergy sexual abuse.

    Heck newspapers have whole sections dedicated to the coverage:

    Still we have people who defend these horrible ugly sociopaths in the name of some greater good, they say it is “just a few bad eggs”, they act as if the real mission has something to do with this god/Jesus story when it is patently obvious that religion is a false front for institutionalized pedophilia.

    So ingrained into the psyche of believers and nonbelievers alike is this presumption that there is some innate decency within religion. pretended is this notion of inherent goodness with faith.

    As children are victimized, terrified and injured, the world of adults just ignores these crimes, content to return next Sunday for another sermon.

    Imagine people believing the biblical account of Jesus, and obvious nonsensical piece of poorly assembled fiction from an age where frightened masses would believe nearly anything holding sway with modern mankind.

    Wow! How stupid can people be!

    Extraordinary claims. Extraordinary evidence?

    Evidence for evolution is everywhere, not just the museums and textbooks but all over the world at large. Rock stratification can be seen along highways all over the world, artificial selection is understood by just about everyone whether it is breeding animals or plants, biologists have validated Darwin’s hypothesis so many times that it has become theory and accepted as fact.

    The biblical creation hypothesis, as other religious hypotheses, have been often repeated but never validated by any other hypothesis. Rather religious traditions make it a point to invalidate other religious hypotheses.

    I also get a laugh out of people who will quickly equate creationism with evolution for two considerations:

    1) Scientists have independently established the validity of evolution.
    2) Religionists have independently cast doubt and disbelief upon all faith other than their own.

    It begs the question: “how can you equate evolution, a theory validated by many hypothesis, with creation something no one validates?”
