  •  Well, they know a hell of a lot more about the (4+ / 0-)

    Bible than they do about science, but they feel perfectly free to pontificate about the latter as well.  I've had "discussions" with fundies that demonstrate conclusively that they know next to nothing about the historical context of the NT or the consensus textual criticism of its books (e.g., claiming that the Gospeps were written within a few years Jesus's death by eyewitnesses or that there are not two, very different "Pauls").   In other words, they are totally indifferent, if not antagonistic, toward any type of truth that is not consistent with their ideology -- just like Faux News, in fact.
