    We all know it is [even creationists know] but just how badly in your opinion is creationism damaging the USA?
    short and long term.

    The first thing that springs to mind is education.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    I don't think it is. In fact given the choice, I'd rather live in a country that believes in creation than "evolution"

    By that I take it you mean a backward country, a country where it is OK to believe in magic.

    Oh come on, 85% of the USA is Christian, believe in the Bible as the word of God, and believe that God created the world. Backward country? Because we believe that someone had to make this world? That's just silly.

    Silly? do you think an imaginary being using magic to create everything is not silly?

    So the whole world just came out of nothing? Do you think God is just imaginary?!?

    Not to mention the fact that this country, at it's greatest, before evolution reared it's ugly little head, was one of the most literate, best educated, most powerful countries in the world. The percentage of atheists was very minimal, we had God in our courts, our schools, and our homes. The introduction of atheism and evolution has dropped us down in every area, most certainly in education, with young people graduating from high school who can't even fill out an employment form properly, including being unable to even spell the name of their school correctly!! You have to be literate to read the bible, and it helps if you know math also! Not to mention that it influences people to learn other languages--backwards my foot!
    You can not read the letters written by the founding fathers, and the following presidents without knowing that they were Christians and had no trouble with displaying their love of God even in Congress--always opened with prayer.
    It's been the evolutionists that have brought this country down, esp in education. Children are being raised without regard for human life, without
    God having created us, and dying to save us, they have nothing to hold unto, nothing to respect, nothing to lift them up above their poverty and no reason why they shouldn't just stay home and collect welfare money--The work ethic is not taught, nor care for others. Self is the god listened to now, and no reason to think of others as priceless treasures and and loved as such by a loving God and deserving of their dignity.--after all, who cares? We're just a bunch of animals anyway, might as well act like them. In fact, worse then animals--animals do not normally beat, abuse, and even kill their children--when they do kill them, it's because the offspring have abnormalities which the mothers know will keep them from being able to fend for themselves.
    I have no doubt you will disagree with everything I've said, and I don't care-- We are the beloved children of the Most High God, and we will be inheriting all He has created for us---Sorry to hear your uncle is an ape, they can't give you much to be proud of, nor leave you anything but poop--enjoy.

    Absolutely not. Your do not understand how does a person learn.
    Teach creation to a child is the best thing that could ever happen in education.

    You are confusing evolution and cosmology. When we talk of evolution, we normally mean biological evolution - the fact that living forms change over time, and the explanation as to why and how they do. Most Christians the world over believe in God and accept the reality of evolution.

    As you are the person who said there is no such thing as a bad teacher, I think we can all enjoy a little chuckle at your above statement.

    Why?

    So was the Weimar Republic.
    Manifest destiny is alive and well in christofascist America, I see.

    Your murderous and inhuman foreign policies have been disastrous.

    Then I have to ask, what do you think about Sweden?

    Does it match what you've written?

    Was that before 1859? I don't think so.

    The United States of the past has had slavery, rampant alcololism, rampant racism. Just to name a few things.

    What you believe to be true has got absolutely nothing to do with what is true, dreams and wishes will change nothing because reality will still be there when we wake up, we will all still be related to apes and we can cry, scream and spit as much as we like we can not change who we are or where we came from, we can choose our friends but not our relatives,
    you can still take comfort that none of that stops the god in your mind from loving you to bits.

    I think you should remove your Christian icon.

    Well you said yourself you don't believe in God, so why use a Christian icon.

    You can believe what you like, but I have experienced God's presence and nothing you say can take that away from me :)

    I have just one question, how did you know it was God's presence?
