They're Proud of Their Ignorance

Take a look at this ebay auction for a book about rocks and minerals. What gets me is the description: "And no mention of Evolution!" They're not just ignorant, they're proud of it.

The auction is for a book in the Sonlight Science series, science books for homeschoolers. Sonlight also offers six books on creation/evolution: not a single valid book on biology in the bunch.

How long can fundamentalists continue to lie to their kids?

YKou just don't understand the born-again mentality. They aren't lying, their position is that their minds are made up, the facts are irrelevent.

Yes, they are proud. They feel sorry for us because we haven't embraced the Truth. I swear this homeschooling movement is going to leave us with a huge underclass of ignorant lunatics. It scares the shit out of me.

They can do it forever. And the kids won't know any better, and will lie to their kids.

Until one of them (heaven forbid!) wants a job in science someplace ...

And this is because most of them aren't actually lying. What they're saying is untrue, but they don't know it. Nor do they want to.
