Abstinence and Creationism

Sometimes when I spend too much time in the car listening to talk radio, my mind wanders more than it should.

For instance, I was thinking about sex ed in schools the other day based on the topic of some radio show where angry people were yelling angrily.

There are a lot of people out there that want abstinence and abstinence only taught in their sex ed classes. My personal opinion on that is kind of irrelevant for this post.

We all know that there are other options out there that people are going to pursue besides or in addition to abstinence. Condoms and birth control pills being a couple of the very common ones.

So we have a few different theories on the best way to teach sex ed but there is a very loud, very large group of the country that only wants abstinence taught despite the other opinions.

Then we have creationism. Again, for the purposes of this post, my opinions on creationism as a science are irrelevant. We all know that their are other theories out there. Big Bang/Evolution being the most common.

Here’s my question of the day, why does it seem that so many of the people that want abstinence only sex ed are so set on having creationism taught as an alternative theory in science.

Shouldn’t they either fight for abstinence only and creationism only or abstinence and other alternatives and creationism and other alternatives?

That’s it for today.
