Watching it won’t convince anyone. They’ll just say it isn’t true because that’s not what the Bible says.
Free Republic pretty much has that covered-even though they’re hardly all young-earth creationists. It’s all political, doncha know?

Oh, and did you know Neil Degrasse Tyson is a racist? Yup. Apparently he is.

When I hear it was going to be Tyson, I knew this was likely to be “must-miss TV.” I’ve had him pegged as a racist for years.

re: #1 calochortus

hmmm…. I wonder why he thinks he’s a racist. I’ve never heard Neil Degresse Tyson say anything racist. He doesn’t at all sound racist and of course it would have been all over news if had said anything remotely racist or bigoted. I wonder if it has something do with him being a liberal.

I bet Tyson didn’t explain why, if we’re descended from monkeys, there are still monkeys.

Did he, huh, did he?

Case closed, and the Free Republic intelligentsia wins another one.

I know why he’s racist - he puts people with dark skin in a good light. Shows they can be highly intelligent and great communicators. Of course, that’s racist because it TOTALLY, obviously projects a false image of dark skinned people: of course they’re dumb and talk funny. That’s why they shouldn’t allowed to vote! Or have positive access to law enforcement! Or be able to receive healthcare! Just ask Andrew Sullivan’s favorite ‘scientist’ and ‘historian’, Charles Murray!

I love Free Republic, it is a mueseum of the clingers on to a dying generation. One that really is full of racists, religious zealots, homophobes, and the incredibly “ignorant by choice” folks that won’t be missed as they continue to die out. The person who started the thread also posts at a pro evolution site for conservatives, which used to be good, but got infested by really angry assholes, and the scientific folk left, so it is just FR 2.

Sadly, the commenter did not provide any examples or evidence of racism.
I’m sure Critical Dragon’s and Cinesimon’s posts explain it adequately.
