Why I am
Chatterbox: Down to Earth
Why I am
Why I am cancelling my Muse subscription and returning to Cricket.
Muse has offended me.
I can gloss over articles about ape-men, dinosaur feathers, and what-have-you. I am perfectly aware that the majority of people do not share my views and that Evolution is regarded by a lot of people as some sort of scientific "concensus." I can only expect that references to it will appear in mainstream publications.
But directly attacking my beliefs is a little bit much. Relegating Young-Earth Creationism to some kind of Dark Age status that has been "proven false" is offensive and unprofessional. There is still a large amount of debate in the public sphere about it and I personally believe people will eventually abandon Evolution as they abandoned spontaneous generation, bloodletting, etc. But even if you don't believe that, no one has to get that way about it!
I am offended that Muse has directly attacked the Bible, YEC, and indirectly people like me, who believe in them.
I am definitely switching back to Cricket and I will probably be writing Muse's Letterbox or whatever it is Muse calls it.
