Creationists Blow Gasket Over IMAX

It would appear that IMAX theaters all across the South are discontinuing films which broach the taboo topic of evolution.

In several US states, Imax cinemas – including some at science museums – are refusing to show movies that mention the subject or suggest that Earth’s origins do not conform with biblical descriptions.

Films include Cosmic Voyage, an animated journey through the universe; Galapagos, a documentary about the islands where Darwin made some of his most important observations; and Volcanoes of the Deep Sea, an underwater epic about the bizarre creatures that flourish near ocean vents.

In most southern states, theatre officials found recent test screenings of several of these films triggered accusations from viewers that the films were blasphemous.

Ok, so this is getting a bit out of hand isn’t it? If you were to stack up all the evidence in favor of evolution and creationism side by side I would guess the evolution stack would dwarf the creation stack like I dwarf an amoeba. That is not to say that evolution may not be flawed and could, some day, be usurped by some other theory but I am pretty damned sure that theory will NOT be creationism.

When I brought this up to my wife she immediately pointed out how I am becoming as intolerant as the flat earthers that anger me so. Yes, apparently that is the case but damn it is so infuriating. What are we supposed to do, sit back while the science departments of our public schools get replaced by religious studies departments?
