The following Facebook conversation I had with a few people is the perfect example of how creationist viewpoints are pushed out of the conversation on no merit whatsoever. If you feel I was wrong in this conversation, feel free to show me where I went wrong in the comments.
The conversation following a friend posting that they were happy that the UK agreed to kick creationism out of any publicly funded school. The names and profile pics have been covered up. I am “Tim”, the black icon. The original poster is the blue icon.
What do you think? Did I push it too far? Did I say something offensive or out of line? From my viewpoint, I was simply pushed out of the conversation because they did not want to hear anything contradictory to their chosen worldview. The evidence was staring them in the face (my first comment), but they would not entertain any idea outside of their own paradigm – even for an adult discussion. Thoughts?
