there is no defeating the dumb

...one can only hope that in the future pride will be synonymous with knowledge, not ignorance.

.....meanwhile, the irritating dismay of being born into a c-grade species.

Wow.  And few countries have Korea's reputation for successful, high quality education.

There are a lots of Korean evangelicals. We save the South from totalitarianism but then burden them with this shit.

Yeah. I guess I had the mistaken impression that the Korean evangelicals are the ones who migrate out of Korea and end up in places like NY and your neighborhood.  I had no idea that Korea proper was plagued with such foolishness.

I know a country that won't be "having" any biologists for a few years...

Dude, that's just pathetically sad. I'd rather have both viewpoints in textbooks than for Evolution just to be nixed all together. There went my respect for South Korea.

This is f***ing horrible. Thanks for sharing StarStuff.

I decided to petition the government. I doubt it'll come to anything but it's worth a try.

A reputation they won't have for much longer if they persist down this road.

They come to America to learn the trade, then they return to Korea to practice it.

If going by this one article is true, thankfully, the Nature article Star Stuff posted is 1/2 truths and not the full story.

This was presented by Mel M from the article in the comments:

http://www.uncommondescent.com/intelligent-design/is-nature-presenting-the-whole-story-about-south-korea/

Apparently it's not a creationism winning over evolution in South Korea, but an attempt to give better examples of evolution, and everybody felt the examples were poor examples to begin with.

This is like what is happening in the US.

Majority rules.
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

SOUTH Korea?? I thought they were enlightened there, in complete contrast to those crazies in the North.
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

People everywhere are mostly the same: gullible.

Btw, I work in an area heavily populated by Koreans and I insure 3 Korean pastors who sponsor missionaries (immigrating students from Korea who are "taught" here and then returned home to "spread the word") and one of the pastors in particular was annoyed with me because her premium kept increasing. She always had a pissed sound in her voice. When I mentioned a way to reduce her bill, a way that I had mentioned many years ago but she refused, she suddenly agreed this time and said that I was a "miracle worker" and that I "will always be able to do the good work for the Lord". I replied, "Mmmkay."
