I find this blind fundamentalist view as dangerous as that of ISIS and A Qaeda. Indeed, it is the same. It is extreme and uncompromising and has no room for tolerating those with different views.
Creationists believe that:
the world was created by god in six days
Genesis is a literal truth
The Earth is less than 10,000 years old
All life is predesigned by god
Evolution does not occur
The flood created a new start and laid down all the sedimentary rocks
Fossils were implanted in rock strata by god
Carbon dating is wrong
They believe the writings of a tribe of Arabs in the Middle East thousands of years ago are the literal word of god
They believe the creation myths and writings of all other tribes are not the work of god
They believe science has got it all wrong
They probably believe in tooth fairies, Santa Claus and Easter bunnies. There is as much validity in those as the Sumerian creation myths.
These are the people who are wanting to educate our children. I find that alarming.
Education should be illuminating – not stiffling.
Education should be questioning – – not a shut book.
