A Truly Ignorant Christian Texan
A truly ignorant Christian adult Texan explained he believed in creationism rather than evolution because it was easier to understand. Christians had taught him that you decide what to believe based on how it appeals to you, independent of its truth.
Christians had made sure he never learned the basics of science namely that you judge two competing theories by comparing how they jibed with the observed facts. He did not know that all the data matches evolution, and everything about creationism contradicts observation.
For example: evolution fits observations of DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid), fossil record, observation of evolution and speciation in Mexican fish in the wild, the way bacteria, viruses and insects evolve immunity, artificial selection. Creationism gets the age of the earth wrong, predicts a DNA diversity collapse which did not happen, cannot explain how diversity could restore after the ark experience, predicts a global flood that did not happen, cannot explain layering of the fossil record, cannot explain ongoing evolution.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)
