    Is it really so extraordinary to be a Young Earth Creationist?

    Yes, mainly because it is a highly unscientific position to have. All the evidence in the world points to evolution. You'd have to be willfully ignorant or scornful towards science to be a creationist.

    In the United States? Not really.

    On these boards? Yes.

    Or you could put it bluntly and just say theyre freaking morons...

    These are the modern day equivalents of people who believed the earth was flat... Until the day that even the most die hards couldn't deny the earth was flat. Evolution will get there as well. Even the church acknowledges evolution.

    It's kind of a sad commentary on the state of the US Educational System in a lot of places these days.

    Since Wocky is whining in the other thread, I guess we can continue it here.

    Wow, this is an old thread?

    I haven't read all of it, but I voted "naturalistic evolution", although I can accept some theistic evolution as explanation.

    I still stand by Gil Gerard ejaculating into the primordial ooze as the explanation for the diversity of life on Earth.

    Prometheus gave me an experience I'd never had before: saying "You know, that movie sucked except for the C-Section scene."

    I support abortion in cases of alien rape where the offspring is going to burst out of your chest and start killing people.

    The Progenitors infused the primordial Earth, along with dozens of other planets in the Alpha Quadrant, with their DNA when they realized their species was dying out.. That's why humans, Klingons, Vulcans, Romulans, etc. all share similar features.

    Why couldn't they just, you know, have sex and have kids?

    Because then we wouldn't have had the amusing scenes of Picard trying to convince the Romulans and Klingons to join him on his scavenger hunt.
