This Blog Allows Evolution To Be Taught.
On March 19th, the New York Times science editor, Cornelia Dean, reported several Imax theaters in the south refused to show Titanic director James Cameron's Volcanoes of the Deep, due to it being pro "Big Bang" theory. Imax theaters are science theaters. The theaters refused to play that movie, fearing protests from creationists. This happened in about a dozen theaters. The movie is about life under sea, in a volcanic area, filmed from a submarine.
This is a sympton of the overall culture war, between the realty based community, and the faith based. This war is going on, not only in USA, but around the world, as examplified by the civil war in Islam, where visions of the Ottoman Empire, are fought against daily.
One way to fight the Yahoos, is to get colleges, to deny accreditation to schools, that don't teach evolution. The students should be required to take remedial science, or not get into college.
Later I will talk about pharmacists, who refuse to fill prescriptions for contraception.
Thank you C.J.
