A FUCKING WASTE OF TREES

Filed at 8:44 pm under by dcobranchi

This tract is being promoted one of the NC homeschooling listservs I monitor. Five bucks for almost 1000 pages. Cheaper than toilet paper.

My response (which I’m sure won’t win me many friends):

Why would anyone spend good money on a tract that starts off like this (from their website)? “Science teachers present evolution as if it were a proven fact. This book, with its thorough index, makes it easy to find answers to those outrageous claims.”

Of course evolution is a fact. Anyone who claims that the Earth is only 6,000 years old or that there is not evidence of common descent is just being plain unscientific. You do your children no favor teaching them unscientific fairy tales while claiming to teach “truth.” Science is self-correcting. Faith? Not quite.

LOL! The index is great. It’s the content that sucks.

I’m a pain in the butt, I know. But if you are going to have an index to your scientific proof, shouldn’t it be typo free? It’s just one, that I noticed. But still . . .

Maybe the book itself doesn’t have “a flood fo coincidences” so it really is only the content that is crap.

I wonder how much money Chick makes from publishing all his crap? He’s got anti-Halloween crap to hand out — chick....lt.asp — Christmas crap to hand out — chick....cttips — crap to hand out while you vacation — chick....cttips — etc.

Must be quite a nifty living, manufacturing and selling all this crap.

But apparently all this evangelical crap pushing is due to a betrayal in his youth — chick....ge.asp. You’d think at this advanced age he’d have gotten over this by now but . .. not. ..

Ahh, Jack Chick. He’s given me more giggles over the years than I can count.

This little mormon boy doesn’t believe the earth is 6000 years old. My kids go to a nazarene co-op – I think some of them do. We probably will stick with their ‘patriotic symbols’ and three R’s type classes.
