I live near the one in Kentucky that that cult built. They also have a "museum" and it seems like it's going to be funny but you see people with large groups of kids there learning how we used to ride dinosaurs into battle. It's really sad when you think about it

Religion promotes lazy thinking that creates people like Donald Trump and Marjorie Taylor Greene.

I am completely against all religions. But I think is mostly an american problem, because I was raised catholic and attended a catholic school in the EU and we were taught evolution, and proper science and history.

Catholics believe in evolution too but they also believe in Noah's Ark and as long you believe the unbelievable that's lazy thinking. All these crazy bible stories should be questioned instead of being accepted like they're a fact. This is the same way Trump's voters accepted his lies like they were the gospel. It's scary because it's very similar thinking in both cases.

me too, EU and Catholic school, as a kid I've always wondered why they told us two different stories, and why the religion teachers were not ashamed of them selves, didn't they know we were learning actual science? this way very soon you learn to lie to everyone.

edit: every effin time I think about that, Orwellian double thinking pops out in my head.

These are evangelical Christians. They do not worship the same Jesus as you were raised to worship. They believe in prosperity gospel and they hate catholics.

The catholic church in the us is hateful, abusive, and corrupt to be sure.

It's not really a mostly American problem when there are women being beaten for not wearing head wraps.
