Ginnungagap was so vast that it extended forever in every direction. There was nothing within the yawning void of Ginnungagap that any human thought could comprehend. Only the Gods knew the secret of Ginnungagap- it was not empty.The only Creation Mythology that is true are the Norse-Teutonic Legends. I know they are true because that is my faith and True Creationism - Norse Creationism- must be taught in Illinois Public Schools alongside Evolution.
By just substituting the laughably false bible and judeo-christo-islamo myths for the above you have the stance of Illinois Republican Lieutenant Governor candidate Jason Plummer.
Plummer said he believed local school officials should be able to determine whether to teach creationism in schools. Simon said local school districts should not be able to opt to teach creationism, saying it was an issue of "separation of church and state."If local school boards wanted to teach that; First jesus came and he created the loaves and the dinosaurs and then he handed George Washington the Constitution when god ordained America as a white, christian, heteronormative promised land Plummer would be Okay with that.
Plummer said he believes in creationism.
Asked if he believed that the world was created in six days and the earth is 10,000 years old, Plummer said: "My philosophical beliefs and my life is based on my faith, and my faith is rooted in my Christian faith."
Of course, what Plummer really wanted to do is send out the conservative code speak and move on but, fortunately, America has enough interested scientists and lay persons who do not want christian ignorance foisted on another generation of Americans as "knowledge".
I saw Leslie Marmon Silko give an interview lecture at the University of Chicago over the weekend. She's fascinating but I don't want her creation myths taught in Biology or Anthropology class either.
The Republicans are suceeding again in getting Americans to vote against their own economic self-interest by feeding them the same panoply of Racism, Religious bigotry and pseudo-scientific ignorance.
Only evil rotten anti-human legislation can come from the electing of polluted Republicans.
