Inherit The Wind 2


Are You A Man or
A Monkey ?
A Disturbing Movement of
Anti-Intellectualism in America

'It's more valuable to see with the eye in one's heart,
rather than see with the eye in one's head.';

The epic crusade of science and technology versus theology, both
religions of sorts dating back in time more years than any of us can begin to
comprehend. Maybe that is why, as a whole, we have such a difficult time
discerning between the two, or rather, why we fail to see clearly the true
meaning that lies behind the propaganda of either.
The arguments on either side are significant and carry as much reason
and weight as the other. Thus, we simply cannot refuse to make a judgment
before looking critically into the logistics surrounding the propaganda of each
theory. God's diplomats, the Bible-thumping, prophesizing blow-hards much
like Brady in Inherit the Wind, are as much the bigoted and biased,
sacrilegious and amoral attention-seekers as they proclaim the evolutionists to
be. However, their chosen doctrine cannot be overlooked, as I myself am
deeply devoted to it's teachings. Brady and others like him fight from the
backbone of Faith. I don't believe in the literal deciphering of the Bible, but
that it is a book of ideals that we must trust in it's veracity. It isn't meant to be explained!
Ironically, the thing that people are the most hungry for, meaning, is the one thing that
science hasn't been able to give them. Enter God, the means

that mankind has clung to for purpose. If there isn't a God, does that mean
that 95% of the world is suffering from some sort of mass dillusion? There
may be a thousand arguments against there being a supreme being that we can
think of, but it's all those reasons that we cannot think of that allow him to
continue to exist as a necessity in our hearts and minds. True, in the past
Galileo, Copernicus and others have proven that the Church can be wrong --
and I agree. Yet the Church, like humanity, has the right to make a mistake
and reassess their beliefs. It doesn't mean all they say is false, not at all! I couldn't
imagine living in a world where God didn't exist -- I wouldn't want

to.
Turn around 360 degrees and you are back facing the same direction,
now science lies in front of you where religion so recently resided. Politics,
science, philosophy, theology, technology -- it's so easy to become confused.
Science is a truth, no matter how adamantly we decree it otherwise. If we
were the center of the universe (as the Bible mandates), if we were all there
