Twitter exchange on #Creationism in the Textbook:
@Newself I cannot believe that anyone would put evolution into a textbook. It is just a theory. #Creationism must be taught and preserved.
@Oldself How can a personal belief in a God who created everything go into an educational textbook? #Creationism is a belief; evolution has factual findings.
@Newself Baloney. There are no facts to support evolution. You have been deceived. You must stop reading anything that has such a sentiment. It will ruin you and give the Devil a place in your heart. #Creationism is real. It needs to be in every student’s textbook.
@Oldself Are you bull-shitting me? Information can never hurt me. Data is good. Exposure to new ideas is good. How can that be bad? #Creationism stifles growth. Don’t try to indoctrinate me. Let me learn.
@Newself Burning in Hell is pretty bad. Repent, and believe in #Creationism.
Indoctrination is so deeply rooted that one has to use a great deal of energy to overcome its influence. Once indoctrinated, the old discarded teachings continue to come to mind; no matter how far I travel. It is an old internal battle of the mind. I am grateful that I can counter those old teachings and freedom of discovery prevails.
