Question with 7 notes
Anonymous asked: Religion vs. Science. I don't get these people. IIRC the Bible says that Earth is 6,000 years old. Jesus-backers frequently try to prove that modern human remains in certain "anomaly" sites are millions of years old to discredit Evolution, but in so doing they're contradicting their own holy book. Can't they get their own act together?
They simply try to make an in route where ever they can. Once something has been shown by science to be entirely true, like evolution, religion will attack it from multiple angles. They will not only try to deny its truth based on the fact that it is non-biblical and contradicts the bible but they will also attempt to undermine the science itself. The second tactic of attempting to undermine the science is more infuriating to me personally.
Someone can say “I just don’t agree with science” and I can move on knowing that they told me “I want to be ignorant”, so I have less worry. When someone attempts to come back with faked science, misinformation, and out right lies it is much more frustrating. At that point not only do you need to attempt to explain why their information is incorrect but also point them to the correct information. Misinformation is far worse than ignorance, that’s why Fox news views are more out of touch with the real world than backwoods Montana separatists are.
