STFU, Creationists
You've seen them everywhere: denying science in classrooms, banging out incoherent drivel in comment threads, and possibly even yelling about the second law of thermodynamics at the dinner table, and society generally seems to put up with it. But not here. Here we tell the creationists to STFU.

Creationists make it sound as though a theory is something you dreamt up after being drunk all night.

I really hate when old people have asinine opinions and feel the need to share them on fb. This is the dad of one of my friends whom I’ve met several times and always thought was a nice old man, and then he does this shit! 
I wasn’t even going to touch the evolution v creation debate though unless he replies, but omg.

Bigotry! It makes the science-denying in this post look harmless!
I always try to look on the bright side of life.

If all the evidence in the universe turned in favour of creationism, I would be the first to admit it, and I would immediately change my mind. As things stand, however, all available evidence (and there is a vast amount of it) favours evolution. It is for this reason and this reason alone that I argue for evolution with a passion that matches the passion of those who argue against it. My passion is based on evidence. Theirs, flying in the face of evidence as it does, is truly fundamentalist.

Um… yeah. I’m not sure how the idea of organisms with less-awesome genes dying from competition is racist. Giraffes with longer necks didn’t exactly segregate themselves from their shorter-necked brethren, they just got to the noms first. And since they’re animals and not sentient, that’s not a malicious move, it’s just how nature works. 
Also, there is no consensus on what intelligence is, let alone how it is inherited or fostered, so it doesn’t really apply here.
But hey, you know what is racist? The “Curse of Ham" myth, which is in the Bible, believed by most Christians, and promoted by infamous Creation "Museum." Yeah.

Why the Anti-Science Creationist Movement Is So Dangerous

abaldwin360:

They want to wipe out all the findings of hundreds of years of scientific investigation and have taken to schools, the courts and political leaders to get things done.

A few weeks ago, Jon Huntsman torpedoed his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination by making the following announcement: “To be clear. I believe in evolution and trust scientists on global warming. Call me crazy.”

It’s a pathetic commentary on the anti-intellectualism rampant in American politics that this is newsworthy. A major-party candidate announces that he doesn’t deny a foundational theory of modern science! In fact, given the political atmosphere in the Republican party, it’s not just newsworthy but a daring act: polls have shown that almost 70 percent of Republicans deny evolution.

Huntsman is clearly trying to position himself as the moderate candidate. But while that strategy might play well in the general election, it won’t do him any good unless he can get the Republican nomination. And to win that nomination, he has to get past a huge obstacle: a solid bloc of Republican primary voters who are emphatically anti-science. This isn’t an exaggeration for polemical effect; it’s the plain truth. The modern Republican party has made a fervent rejection of scientific consensus its defining attribute — both on evolution and climate change, as well as in other fields — and Huntsman’s refusal to submit to party orthodoxy is likely a fatal blow to his chances.
