44%!? Really? I find that hard to register. I've seen a lot of pretty aggressive campaigning against science/evolution/free thinking on YouTube in the land of the free. I've seen some videos of pretty heavy childhood indoctrination/ flat out brain washing as well.
It's pretty amazing to hear the mantras these people, creationists in particular, fool themselves with. So many of them seem to be human versions of parrots, who repeat things perfectly well, but have no literal understanding of what they're saying.
I watched a video of a dude called Ted Haggard, I assume you know of the guy, and it's amazing how immoral some of those that consider themselves destined to ascend really are. A lot of this preaching is an obvious excuse for the usurping of others' money, by targeting those who have an inability to think for themselves.
I've only really started to gain any real interest in this feud of Science VS Religion very recently. Are there any forums or something of the like that you are part of that you'd recommend for my reading?
