Finally someone is stepping up to the plate to put all you science nut jobs in your place! With SCIENCE! I know that sounds contradictory, but Scottish newspaper, “The Herald” is reporting that schools in Louisiana using Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) textbooks are using the existence of Nessie to dispute/debunk the myth of evolution. From ACE textbook, “Biology 1099″,
“Are dinosaurs alive today? Scientists are becoming more convinced of their existence. Have you heard of the ‘Loch Ness Monster’ in Scotland? ‘Nessie’ for short has been recorded on sonar from a small submarine, described by eyewitnesses, and photographed by others. Nessie appears to be a plesiosaur.”
Read what I just said. . . “SCIENTISTS are becoming more convinced.” GAME. SET. MATCH. This isn’t about fundamentalist Christians molding innocent young minds with an agenda of creationist brain washing. . . it says “SCIENTISTS.” In your FACE scientists!! Wait. . .
Whatever. The bottom line is scientists are clearly unconvinced about evolution, because OTHER scientists believe the Loch Ness Monster is real. So that means there is WIDESPREAD disagreement and confusion!
I’m reminded of the line from Shakespeare’s “The Merchant of Venice”, and believe me I didn’t have this memorized, I had to look it up:
The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose.
An evil soul producing holy witness
Is like a villain with a smiling cheek,
A goodly apple rotten at the heart:
It’s ironic to see that quote’s first line turned on its head with Creationists citing Science for their purpose. The remaining three lines remain in tact as written.
