Basic science

Dear Editor:A recently released national survey commissioned by the California Academy of Sciences reported among other findings that only 59 percent of adults know that the earliest humans and dinosaurs did not live at the same time. Various mainstream media outlets used this to conclude and popularize the idea that "American adults flunk basic science." We, the people of Downey, think otherwise and are proud to be among the 41 percent that have not been brainwashed by the poison of evolution. This is due in part to the Creation Booth we hosted last year at the Downey Street Faire where, among other displays, we had a poster easel with the following four statements: 1.) God created dinosaurs and man on day six of creation. 2.) Dinosaurs have always lived with man. 3.) Noah took dinosaurs into the ark. 4.) Some dinosaurs may still be alive today. I encourage you to come visit our booth again this year as we celebrate "2009 Year of Creation," in strong opposition to the Establishment's celebration of the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth and the 150th anniversary of his racist work whose complete title is this: "The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection: The Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle for Life." Who are the favored races, Charlie? - Dan Cristea, Downey
