Hello Deborah! I find most countries/gvts teach both evolution and creationism in their schools, do you have any idea why this is so? My country Zambia for example, while calling itself a christain nation has insisted on both evolution and religious education in schools. Idon't understand this, is it that mankind has difficulties to take one stand regarding the universe?
Hi Deborah, I see we have some things in common. I'm currently working as a legal advisor in Randburg. If you need a candidate attorney at your firm give me a call, Francois Malan 083 279 6366. Great to see that there are in fact female atheists in South Africa!
I didn't know you joined either. That is great! If you hear of another movie like Religulous or The Golden compass let me know please. I heard from Anil. It is so seldom that these do come out and then I dash off to see them when they do. So pleased to know that there are others in Joburg who belong to this site and make themselves known, wow!! How did you hear about it?
Hey Deborah, you started a really interesting debate there - are you going to come back and tell us if we've answered your question? I'd love to know if we're helping at all or just talking the talk. ;-)
