Creationists take over the movies


This story harkens back to the Scopes Monkey Trial.

IMAX theaters in several Southern cities have decided not to show a film on volcanoes out of concern that its references to evolution might offend those with fundamental religious beliefs

Ironic that fundamentalists, who argue intelligent design is just anohter theory worthy of being debated in the class room, use their economic influence to block movie theaters from showing something that only tangentially supports evolution.

This is the ostrich approach to reality. If there is something that you don't like, cover your eyes and it won't be there. At what point will the absurd bubble that fundamentalists live in be popped?
