Promote Evolution Weekend 2009

Being as involved as I am with Young Earth Creationist preachers, sometimes it is hard to remember that there are many churches out there whose pastors and congregations I have a lot more in common with. The upcoming Evolution Weekend event is a good reminder.

The weekend of February 13th – 15th, the clergy at thousands of churches across the country will be speaking up in support of evolution. If you are involved with a church or know people who are, please ask them to participate in this event. People should know that even if they do believe in the supernatural, they can still believe in science.

There is a pretty good article about the history of Evolution Weekend over at religion dispatches. Sadly the Young Earth Creationists let us know that they’re still all around us by commenting on the article and claiming that evolution is a religion and not science.

For those of you reading this who are in that camp, maybe a visit to one of the churches participating in Evolution Weekend would help you to open your eyes to not just the theory but the fact of evolution. Accepting it may change your theological views, but wouldn’t you rather know the truth than stick to what you believe now if what you believe may be wrong?

My name is Shawn Esplin and I am an advocate of Free Thought and general good sense and thought in general. To that end, I encourage people to seriously question the things that they have been taught, especially as children, because many of these things - religious and secular - are taken on faith until we actively choose to seriously examine them for ourselves.
