    Of course Creationists have the right share their views, just not enforce them. Because we all the right to free speech, all of us, whatever we want to say. Unless it hurts someone. But like Hubert Humphrey said:

    "The right to be heard does not automatically include the right to be taken seriously."

    Every religion has it's own creation myth. But that's all they are.

    Funny how they're all different. So each religion thinks they've cornered the market on Creation stories, and the rest are just fake news.

    The issue is that there are people (a whole shitload of them), that want to believe in an anthropomorphic God that punishes sinners, so that the "pious" can feel superior to the heathens/infidels/atheists/hippies/etc. (and do their superior dance!)

    These are people who are lacking an internal moral compass, instead relying on others to tell them right from wrong. And this is where things go very wrong, since they discovered these people are easy to brainwash, and very obedient so that they don't end up in HELL (which doesn't exist except in their own minds)

    Pretty lucrative racket tho Huge amounts of cash, no taxes, plenty of sex, constant adulation. The only thing better is----is----hmmm. :cool:

    Of course in some "religions, you WILL adhere to what the prevailing dogma happens to be or you could be killed. :confused:
