Texas School Board Set to Vote on Challenge to Evolution - WSJ.com
Actually, if the term "creationism" was properly used, I'd be all for it! Creation WAS done:
Man created God in his own image, not the other way around. But it wasn't "Intelligently Designed!"
Most of the time when creationists think they're criticizing evolution, they're actually criticizing abiogenesis. Though it's really quite funny that they think intelligent design is a more reasonable explanation for the origin of life.
I have one question. If man created God in his own image, then man also wrote the Ten Commandments. Who were these men who created this God? Were they the peasants or the rulers? I would assume it had to be those who had some form of power. They must have been educated, and they surely served their rulers, unless of course it was the rulers themselves.
So my question is this. Why did they give all the working stiffs a day off? Did they really believe everyone deserved one vacation day per week?
Man began creating God in his own image as soon as he was self-aware and could create. "God" in this context is any deity, any supreme being. Not just the brand new, Christian one.
Brand new in this context is, the timeline of its existence on a bar showing the history of man is about as big as the period at the end of this sentence. It's new.
god loves texas...
The history of working hours in society is very, very interesting.
