Children being brainwashed with creationism
This is absolutely disgusting, tantamount to mental child abuse. Evolution is a FACT, and religion should not be fed to children until they are developed enough to make their own decisions. Watch until the end, the final interviews with the children are heartbreaking.
Some quotes from the video:
- “Evolution is from the devil”
- “God said it, I believe it, that settles it”
- “Do you believe in evolution?
“What do you believe?”
“That God created the world”
“Who told you that?”
”As an atheist, I see nothing “wrong” in believing in a god. I don’t think there is a god, but belief in him does no harm. If it helps you in any way, then that’s fine with me. It’s when belief starts infringing on other people’s rights when it worries me. I would never deny your right to believe in a god. I would just rather you didn’t kill people who believe in a different god, say. Or stone someone to death because your rulebook says their sexuality is immoral. It’s strange that anyone who believes that an all-powerful all-knowing, omniscient power responsible for everything that happens, would also want to judge and punish people for what they are.”
- Ricky Gervais on Religion
These children are not being given the choice to make their own decisions, and in that I see the infringement of their rights. As Gervais says “It’s when belief starts infringing on other people’s rights when it worries me”.
My two cents on the issue.
