The National Park System doing Darwin's dirty work

If you haven't been to Zion National Park in Utah, you're missing out. It's a cathedral.

Which is ironic, since your tax dollars go to forcing Darwin's creation myth on visitors through the park's tram narration (the only way to ride through Zion's scenic route) and educational displays and programs.

Disturbingly, I observed a park ranger repeatedly telling kids that even though the local Indians drew dinosaurs centuries ago, they didn't actually see any, since the "terrible lizards" lived millions of years before we did.

For a group of people who boast so loudly of their reason and intellect, Darwinists are remarkably superstitious (and ill-informed, intellectually-dishonest, and hypocritical). The only reason that evolutionists claim that dinosaurs lived millions of years ago -- and long before humans -- is because God can't be true. They have to believe -- and force everyone else to believe -- that Life arose by accident from preexisting muck. Millions of years give a tinge of possibility to their fable.

The only problem is, no one has observed the truth of any its core elements. (For example, we do know that random genetic mutations occur in the cells of living things, but these end usually in sickness or death.)

That's why that ranger proselytizes for her irrational religion. That's why she has to convince others -- and herself -- that even though Indians depicted their experience of dinosaurs so many years ago, their art can not mean what it obviously means. She has to have others reject obvious fact in service to her anti-intellectual and anti-empirical religious philosophy, evidence of which no one has observed, ever.

Our public employees should refrain from forcing their religious beliefs on others (especially children) and instead to just stick to the facts as we find them.
