Onion Week in History: Scopes Trial, Christopher Reeves looses horse raceon June 7, 2012 at 8:23 am
I have spent too much time debating evolution with morons. But online and in real life I have found the main problem is creationists just have no concept of TIME. Then cannot grasp 10,000 years, yet alone a million or a few billion years.
The answer to this problem is to require all high school students to take a course in anthropology. Instructors always begin the course by taking a string or some chalk and going to one side of the room and applying it to the side wall, then the back wall and then the other side wall where they stop, and make a dot at the end. “This is the time line of life on Earth, and this dot is how long humans have been around.” Things click in and reason usually prevails. Why do most Americans refuse to accept evolution? Because they don’t actually think about such things. It hurts their brains.
