For better or worse you have inspired a blog by an evil clown:

Excellent post!

I learned of the creation story as just that, a story. I was never aware, until adulthood, that people actually believed that creation literally occurred as written in the Bible.

In the intervening years, I've read more about what these folks believe about creation. It's really quite astounding!

Items such as:
---the Grand Canyon was created in several days when the great flood subsided
---fossils are fakes
---every plant and animal that ever was and ever will be was on the ark (but other creationists say that there were only two of each "kind" - for example, just 2 dogs total.)
---and of course the one you mentioned - man & TRex lived on earth at the same time

I refuse to use the term "creation science" because it is as far removed from "science" as one can get. I just stick with calling them creationists.

And if I hear one more uneducated boob say, about a scientific theory --"Well, it's just a theory." or "It's never been proven 100 percent." --- I think I'll .... I'll.... well, I just don't know, but I'm so depressed every time I hear how stupid people are!

Interesting survey info I saw recently - 60% of people earning less than $20K per year believe in the literal creation story; only 29% of those earning over $50K believe it literally. And 65% of those with no high school diploma also believe the literal story.

Every time I start to believe I am still a Republican, I listen to the "leaders" of the Republican party and I really have to think twice. Is this quickly becoming the party of the Know-Nothings (literally!)?

Do they also hold to a Ptolemaic, pre-Copernican view that posits the sun moves around the earth along with the moon and the stars?

Well, according to a NSF-funded study by Dr. Jon Miller of Northwestern indicates that around 1 in 5 American adults hold that very view (link is to a blog discussion of the article, along with the article).

I know college-educated people who didn't know that all objects fall with the same acceleration, regardless of mass (ignoring drag).

But isn't it the local schools who are mixing politics with education? How will migrating students to private schools fix the problem? The schools will enter into a free-market situation, in which they will tailor their lessons for what the students and parents want to hear, not what they need to hear. And what of the students that can't afford private school? They would be consigned to the stigma of public housing, free health clinics, and public education.

I would argue that much of the decline in American education has its roots in a cultural shift that ridicules "liberal elites" and promotes "everyday people". Many religious people see science as an attack on their faith and -- inflamed by a minority of vocal and idiotic scientists who aggresively celebrate the decline of religion and attack it as "fairy tales" -- lash out at these figures.

Besides, who wants to be a hard-working scientist when you can be a get-rich-quick real estate agent, middle manager, or day trader?

My final question is: Why do the believers in a literal view of the biblical story creation have such little respect for the greatest of God's creations, the human intellect?

Some of them would claim that the human intellect was corrupted by the Fall, along with the rest of creation.

I've met people who think dinosaur bones were placed in the ground by Satan, so that the tempter might lure Christians away from Biblical truth.
