Suspension of Reason and Critical Thinking

“Fundies” refers to religious fundamentalists of any religion- Christianity, Islam, Judaism, to name a few.

It blows my mind how educated people can suspend reason, critical thinking, and the scientific method and actually believe the Noah story in the Old Testament is fact.

While reading an article about newly VP-elect Mike Pence, my mother-in-law balked at everything about him EXCEPT when she read that Pence supports teaching creationism as science and fact. Mom said, “Well, he’s right.” Even if she believes in creationism, it still should not be taught in public schools  as science! Later, I will discuss the Christian argument that evolution is just a theory.
