The on-going debate over evolution.

During the entire six decades of my adult life, I have listened to the debates over creation and evolution. Now the terminology has been changed to "intelligent design," which is Christian creation redefined.

My studies indicate that there have been over 3,000 religions, which all had their own creation stories. Native Americans alone had over 200 tribal religions and creations. It is racist to discuss only Christian creation, unless we also include all the other creations that exist in this world. Religious racism is rife in this world.

Many were furious when the Islamic Taliban destroyed the Buddhist statues in Afghanistan, but religions have destroyed other religions for thousands of years. The Egyptians eliminated breakaway cults before they became dominant. Christians, Jews and Muslims have each destroyed other houses of worship. Christians came to the Americas and virtually wiped out Native American religions. In Mayan and Incan lands, the Catholics destroyed temples and pyramids and built their own cathedrals on top of the ruins.

So much for alleged religious tolerance.
