Cosmos For Creationists

A Fox affiliate in Oklahoma cut the only reference to evolution by cutting out fifteen seconds of the premiere episode of Cosmos. Reportedly this was accidental, just like the eighteen minute gap in the Watergate tapes. The above video shows further editing of Cosmos to appeal to the anti-science right.

    Oh My!…

    Watched this last evening on Hulu and every few minutes was wowed by the images and the special effects. This one is going to be a favorite… When i saw it was on Fox really wondered how this one would go over with the anti-science crowd.. Not at all surprised there was a edit “error”….

    Well, when I first heard Fox was presenting it, I couldn’t believe it. Now I know why, so they had the capability to edit it!

    They are pretty much going to have to cut most of it out since the calendar time line is completely screwed up. I mean, according to creationists, it’s pretty short if it’s only 5000 years, like everything happens in January. LOL 🙂

    it’s 5000 years? I thought it was 70 years ago, you know, eisenhower era, mc carthy, sending all the young sons to die. If the latter wasnt biblical proportion, I dont know what was. Blood of the Lamb. Slaughter of the Innocents. Pogrom on the infant sons. My God. With some sad levity it might be a good thing were it only 5k years ago, for it erases millenia of human suffering from the predations of other humans who claim ‘to know everything worth knowing.’
