It Makes No Sense

I just don't get religious people. They'll point out the smallest supposed gaps in knowledge in Evolution and Big Bang and declare those theories invalid, even though there's a mountain of objective evidence to support them. But at the same time they claim that Creationism (and by extension Intelligent Design), which is absolutely riddled with contradictions and demonstrable factual errors, and is supported by no objective evidence whatsoever, must be true. The fact that it's a double-standard, that they hold scientific theories to a higher standard of evidence than their religious beliefs, is actually the least troubling part of this. I'm just amazed that such a plainly irrational point of view continues to have such a powerful grip on so many people, simply because they refuse to open their minds and see.

True sir, how true.
