Go to: Three Eminent Biologists And 'Growing Pains' Kirk Cameron Weigh In On Evolution

That's so funny! But it wasn't necessary to have a photo of Kirk as a teenager. It would look just as ridiculous with a picture of him today -- and his goofy, "I know everything about everything" smile.

Go to: Creating God in one's own image

But then what does that say about the people who advocate the wrath of God and his unyielding intolerance?

The phrase, "I don't hate 'fags', God hates them" no longer applies (not that I ever thought it did, but it would be interesting to use these studies against fundamentalists to see what their reaction would be)

This is awesome, Richard. You have my full support! I'll definitely pass the word along.

While I was reading WHY EVOLUTION IS TRUE, my 5-year-old niece asked if I could explain what it was that I was reading. She understood (and enjoyed) learning about how the whale evolved.

I'm sure she didn't grasp everything, but she certainly showed an interest and was even able to repeat a lot of the information quite accurately.

We don't give kids enough credit.
