Creation Nation

So the creationist community gathered in Lynchburg, Virginia -- where else? -- for a six-day conference (get it?) at which they managed to explain dinosaurs, the ice age, the Big Bang and the secret spices in Kentucky Fried Chicken.

They were incredibly thorough, as this quote reveals:

According to one assessment, at the root of the creationist argument is the concern that evolution undermines moral beliefs, leading to lawlessness, family breakdown, homosexuality, pornography, and abortion.

Teaching evolution leads to viewing pornography? I think someone needs to explain to these people that "homo erectus" doesn't mean the dirty thing they think it does.

Lemme get this straight. These guys think they are going to win over the hearts and minds of America by telling them that if they get evolution out of the schools, we can get rid of porn forever? Yeah, that's gonna go over real good. New Coke good.

Step one: Stop evolution
Step two: ...
Step three: Profit!

Banishing porn seems an awfully small goal. Why not just come out and say that universal teaching of creationism will bring about peace on earth? If it could actually occur (creationism=peace everywhere forever), I could really get behind that.*

*I'd need a really convincing explanation of why the Middle Ages really didn't suck so bad before getting on the creationism train.

Ban porn already so I can get this crap outta my house!

I remember Jesus talking about peace, but not creation. Hmmm.

If we assume they are correct, and learning Evolution leads directly to pornography and becoming gay, how exactly does anyone get pregnant and require an abortion?
