Imax 'shuns films on evolution'

Interesting that I didn't see this in any of the local papers.
This is very much not a good thing. The Bible is NOT a science book. I don't recall anywhere in the Old Testament where God says anything about turning off our brains, and ceasing to study and learn what we can about our physical universe. That also seems to be missing from the New Testament. NO, I haven't read the Bible cover to cover. So, I am prepared to stand corrected.

But I am fairly certain the Bible does not teach quantum mechanics, calculus, thermodynamics, or advance any theories on evolution, or lack of evolution.

This all seems to center on the concept of the Universe having been created in 6 days, therefore evolution is non-Biblical.

Somehow, I don't think that is the point of Genesis. I will fault the Scientific Community on one point however. It is in reaction to the charge that 'the Earth was not created in 6 days, therefore the Bible is crap" that has created all these sad efforts to legitimize the Bible through pseudo-science, such as Intelligent Design, etc.

I'm sorry, but you don't look in a calculus book to learn how to bake Irish Soda Bread, and you don't look in The Joy of Cooking to cipher out differential equations.

Meanwhile, the Fort Worth IMAX folks are intellectual cowards.

I don’t have any deep comments here. I just needed a spot to proclaim my triumph over compu-Nazi anti-blog work-police; as evidenced by my rampant posting in Frater’s blog.

FREEDOM!
