Louisiana Creationists Engage In Serial Child Abuse Using Taxpayer Money

And so is teaching them Young Earth Creationism!

Yeah, that’s right, child abuse. I said it. Teachers that teach their students that the Earth is 6000 years old are engaged in a systematic effort to make their students as stupid as possible. That’s child abuse as far as I’m concerned.

Oh? I’m overreacting? I shouldn’t criticize other people’s religious beliefs?

Bullshit. These people are lying to those children and they damn well know it. How do I know, for a fact, that the teachers know they’re full of crap?

Addictinginfo reports:

You probably wouldn’t be surprised to learn that many schoolchildren in Louisiana are learning that evolution is a lie and creationism is real. What might surprise you is what their Christian curriculum is teaching to prove the theory of creationism – the Loch Ness Monster.

The Loch Ness Monster, or ‘Nessie’ as they call her in Scotland, is similar to other legendary creatures such as Big Foot, the Chupacabra or the Yeti in that there are a number of people who believe with all their hearts that the monster exists, but even in Scotland, Nessie is largely considered to be just a legend.

Among American Christian educators with Accelerated Christian Education (ACE), though, Nessie is alive and well and she is proof that humans and the dinosaurs walked together.

Un-frakking-believable! Is there no low these savages will not sink to to indoctrinate children? The Loch Ness Monster? The Loch Ness Monster?! Does anyone seriously believe that these religious freaks actually believes the Loch Ness Monster is real? No, they don’t. They just need “proof” that dinosaurs did not live millions of years ago so they’re pretending Loch Ness is as real as their interpretation of Bronze Age mythology.

And did I mention you’re paying for it? Yup. Due to the voucher program headed up by Kenneth the Page Governor Bobby Jindel, schools can completely ignore the First Amendment because the money is not being paid directly by the state. Surprise! That’s exactly what I said would happen. Yay. Being right is so awesome. Woo. Yay.

Religious fanatics need their followers as gullible and stupid as possible. A single ounce of critical thinking exposes their “flock” (a nice way of saying “mindless sheep”) to the risk of seeing through the ocean of bullshit their cult leaders have drowned them in.

Here’s some more “science”:

  • Science Proves Homosexuality is a Learned Behavior (no it hasn’t)
  • The Second Law of Thermodynamics Disproves Evolution (I’ll address this in a second)
  • No Transitional Fossils Exist (except for the thousands that do)
  • Humans and Dinosaurs Co-Existed (only in cartoons)
  • Evolution Has Been Disproved (then so has gravity, walk off a bridge and try it!)
  • A Japanese Whaling Boat Found a Dinosaur (that would be Godzilla and he was a guy in a rubber suit)
  • Solar Fusion is a Myth (everyone knows the sun is really the Eye of Sauron!)
Need more proof that Creationists know that they’re lying? The “Second Law of Thermodynamics Disproves Evolution” line has been around for years. It’s supposed to sound complicated and confusing to the average person so it makes the religious zealot that is delivering it sound all smart and stuff. In reality, it’s very VERY simple and even simpler to debunk.
Ready?
The Second Law of Thermodynamics says in less nerdy terms, “Science says things become more disorganized (entropy) in a closed system (in which no energy is added or subtracted) and evolution is an increase in order, therefor, evolution is impossible.”
WOW! Homerun!
Except that the Earth is not a closed system. The Earth gets all the energy it could ever need to fuel evolution. It’s called the Sun. This is so outrageously easy to understand that some liberal idiot explained it in a few sentences. Yet, these scumbag teachers are using it to intentionally mislead their victims students.
What else would you call this except child abuse?

    Creationism, and all these religious based “science” arguments are just intellectual laziness. These are just a way to explain the world in the terms an early BRONZE AGE person, before scientific methods existed, might use. After all, we KNOW that all knowledge stopped being discovered in 1500 BC because the first parts of the Bible were written then (right?) and if the Bible doesn’t say it, it has to be fraud, right?

    To be fair, if one can believe all the points you listed as well as creationism (as opposed to the intelligent design idea, which at least says ok, science exists, but you can’t prove or disprove god), they might be able to believe in nessie as well. not much of a stretch at that point really.

    Here in TN, they have taken steps though new legislation to allow creationism back into the classroom. This law turns the clock back nearly 100 years here in the seemingly unprogressive South and is simply embarrassing. There is no argument against the Theory of Evolution other than that of religious doctrine. The Monkey Law only opens the door for fanatic Christianity to creep its way back into our classrooms. You can see my visual response as a Tennessean to this absurd law on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/04/pulpit-in-classroom-biblical-agenda-in.html with some evolutionary art and a little bit of simple logic.

      “Evolution is a theory based on scientific fact and human knowledge of biology and life, which can neither be proved nor disproved.” This is incorrect. Evolution can be disproven if it is wrong. On the other hand, it can be proven over and over again if new information continues to support the overall theory. That’s just how science rolls. So far, the Creationist freaks have utterly failed to find a single piece of information that does not fit into the theory of evolution. Wah-wah-waaaaahhhhh!
