What an astonishing, heart-rending, thought-provoking piece of art. May it inspire the world to become a better place.
Evolution is the fundamental idea in all of life science, in all of biology. According to Bill Nye, aka “The Science Guy,” if grownups want to “deny evolution and live in your world that’s completely inconsistent with everything we observe in the universe, that’s fine, but don’t make your kids do it because we need them.”
In Travis County, Texas, county commissioners were presented with the opportunity to remove a cross present in the county seal since 1975.
By a 4-1 vote, they decided instead to keep the Christian symbol, and continue to exclude from government people who don’t subscribe to Christian beliefs.
The lone dissenter, Sarah Eckhardt, said, “I think that this presents us with an opportunity to update our seal to something that’s more in keeping up with the changing population and demographic in our county.”
She added: “In 2012, to … put in an implicit preference for Christianity is inappropriate.”
It’s outrageous and hugely unfortunate that her fellow commissioners did not agree with her, instead choosing to once again spit in the eye of humanists and non-Christians, and violate the U.S. Constitution at the same time.
