The Theory of Everything

I wonder if those creationists who keep trying to get local school boards to treat the Theory of Evolution as “just a theory” and require equal time for Christian dogma disguised as “scientific creationism” or “Intelligent Design” also want to teach alternate “theories” of atomic theory, cell theory germ theory, theory of relativity, Asymptotic theory, Catastrophe theory, Chaos theory, Coding theory, Deformation theory, Dimension theory, Field theory, Game theory, Graph theory, Group theory, gravitation theory, Homology theory, Homotopy theory, K-theory, Knot theory, L-theory, Lie theory, Matrix theory, Model theory, Morse theory, Music theory, Number theory, Obstruction theory, Perturbation theory, Potential theory, Probability theory, Ring theory, Set theory, Shape theory, Spectral theory, Stability theory, String theory, Stable theory, etc., etc..

Surely the theory of evolution is not the only one that needs sanctification and certification by the Christian right’s Mutawa’een.

The Christian right wants to assure their cultural reproduction and defend and disseminate their beliefs and lifestyle, and they realize that the teaching of evolution and having their children learn the truths of science can neutralize their efforts.  They either welcome a theological control of life on earth, or they can’t, or don’t want to, think things through.

There is prodigious effort and money behind the religious right, and they are continually plotting the demise of democracy and secularism. They are evil.

Quote of the day

“We are always making God our accomplice so that we may legalize our own inequities. Every successful massacre is consecrated by a Te Deum, and the clergy have never been wanting in benedictions for any victorious enormity.” Henri Frédéric Amiel

Interested in family and friends,grandchildren, photography, darkrooms, history, archaeology, scuba diving, computers, software, fast cars, journalism, writing, travel, ecology, news, science, and probably most other subjects you could think of. Did I mention family and friends?? I require iced tea or cold brewed coffee and a internet connection to be fully functional. Sometimes there are just so many words in my head they spill out.

    What makes you so full of it that you’d think Christians are “out to get you”?

    A misunderstanding of Christianity, represented horribly by “Christians” who don’t understand it themselves, shouldn’t justify a full fledged attack. That’s not a very “scientific” approach. Every time the sciences make a mistake or back up a false theory (hello, eugenics) and have to be reevaluated, no one goes so far as to bash the whole idea of science. And no one writes a critical essay without reading and understanding the work they criticize.

    Christianity never set itself against science. (You fill in the rest)

    On that note, however, as I’m sure you have some heatedly fueled remark, I’d advise you not to get so caught up in how much you’ve got life figured out that you forget to care about it. How wise can a person who shuts out the most challenging perspectives be? What good does this back and forth do for REAL, ongoing, more-than-just-conceptual life?

    Your blog goes farther than attacking “Dominionism”. I’m sorry if my message wasn’t clear.

    • the word of me says:

      No need to apologize.

      I think that evangelical fundamentalist are working to control local school-boards, local and state governments and eventually federal positions with the already stated goal of religious control.

      Do you follow religious news at all.

      I’m sorry, but I fear religious zealots…look what they have already done.

      If civilization ever ends…it WILL be because of religion

    I fear the atrocities that victims go through, but not the twisted people behind it. So I don’t give them the attention they don’t deserve.

    You are on to something: the god of ‘good Christian slavery,’ the god of exclusivity, the god providing the law for a ‘me/us-and-not-you’ agenda, doesn’t exist.

    Real followers of Christ don’t fear new information. We believe that God is in control even when something appears to contradict Him.

    Isn’t fear a necessity for the power you speak of? Don’t give them what they want!

    Religion will (and historically has) been the theoretical root of catastrophe. That in itself is interesting….maybe there’s more to it than big-headed egos.

    An honest question; say religion didn’t exist. What would be next in line to cause human damnation? (as in, we’re imperfect. What’s the next biggest issue that would cause our demise?)

      Hello aabenjamin, thanks for writing.

      You write:
      “An honest question; say religion didn’t exist. What would be next in line to cause human damnation? (as in, we’re imperfect. What’s the next biggest issue that would cause our demise?)

      If religion did not exist there is no ‘damnation’ to worry about.

      To my mind…God does not exist, so there is no worry about ‘damnation’

      Stupid government leaders who follow they’re own agenda instead of the peoples would be the cause of our demise if currant religions did not exist.

        (Completely aware of the problematic word choice). Good old discourse. Thanks for your consideration.
