read about the creationist's movement- and the wedge issue here. and here. and check out the pbs nova special 'intelligent design on trial' here.
my one hope for the survival of humanity is that people as a whole wake up and realize that you don't have to have religion to have spirituality. i seem to harp on the christians here in this country- with good reason- i live here. we are a democratic republic- or we were before movements like this started insidiously taking over. wake up folks. if it seems too unbelievable to be true, it probably is true.
