I can respect religious folks who want to believe in the story of biblical creation. But there are already things in the Bible that they’re ignoring. (See any stonings lately?) I’ve been reading about evolution since high school. I am convinced that the science is correct. I do not think the plant is a few thousand years old. I agree that organisms change over time. So, I try to maintain respect, but it’s laughable to treat creationism on an equal footing with evolution, as some politicians (and school officials) do.
