Ohio school caught using a video made by an Islamic sex cult to teach creationism to kids

Published

on

Young Americans are still learning about creationism in schools despite the fact that it has no basis in scientific reality. The Daily Beast notices that the curriculum map used by the Youngstown, Ohio school district recommends that teachers show students a video called “Cambrian Fossils and the Creation of Species” that purports to completely disprove the theory of evolution.

The video peddles misinformation about the so-called Cambrian Explosion, a time period where the number of species on Earth rapidly increased over the span of 550 million years.

More intriguing, however, is the revelation about just who produced this piece of creationist propaganda. It turns out the video is “based on the works of Harun Yahya,” who is an Islamic televangelist and leader of a bizarre Islamic sex cult.

“Harun Yahya… is a pseudonym for Adnan Oktar, a creationist cult leader and Islamic televangelist who owns Turkey’s A9 TV channel,” The Daily Beast writes. “On Oktar’s A9 channel, a group of women in tight-fitting designer clothes and dyed blonde hair help him promote Islam and attack evolution, all the while calling him ‘master.’ Oktar refers to the women as his ‘kittens,’ and as Slate reports, he ‘offers [his kittens’] beauty as evidence of Islamic creationism.'”

While that in itself is disturbing, it turns out the Yahya is also a Holocaust denier who has written a book titled The Holocaust Deception: The Hidden Story of Nazi-Zionist Collaboration and the Inner Story of the Hoax of “Jewish Holocaust.”

Youngstown school officials did not respond to questions asking them to justify using this video in classrooms, although it wouldn’t be surprising if they quietly removed it from the curriculum after learning of its origins.

Published

Defense research scientist and genocide expert Brynn Tannehill laid out a terrifying warning on Thursday about President Donald Trump's administration.

As the United States Senate conducted an impeachment trial for the commander-in-chief, Tannehill posted an extended Twitter thread examining the situation in America from her perspective as a researcher studying the conditions that lead to genocide.

Here is what she wrote:

I study genocide. It's been a theme in my academic endeavours for nearly 30 years. More accurately, I study the conditions in the lead up to genocide, be they cultural, social, political, economic, etc... 1/n

Year of Rat hails easy ride for Donald Trump — but bumps for Harry and Meghan

Published

on

As the world prepares to welcome the Year of the Rat, feng shui masters predict a lucky year for Donald Trump, but warn Harry and Meghan's futures are less certain as they make a bid for freedom.

Both the US President and the Sussexes have begun 2020 with a bang.

The former is facing down an impeachment trial -- and seeking re-election in November -- while the latter are beginning a new chapter in Canada after consciously uncoupling from the gilded but pressured career of being a working British royal.

But if experts in the field of Chinese horoscopes are to be believed, it is the US president that will have the easier journey this year.

John Roberts caused a ‘crisis of democratic legitimacy’ — it’s ‘entirely fitting’ he has to preside over his mess: columnist

Published

on

Supreme Court Justice John Roberts was blasted in The Washington Post on Thursday for his culpability in creating the dynamics that resulted in President Donald Trump -- and his impeachment.

"There is justice in John Roberts being forced to preside silently over the impeachment trial of President Trump, hour after hour, day after tedious day," Dana Milbank wrote. "Roberts’s captivity is entirely fitting: He is forced to witness, with his own eyes, the mess he and his colleagues on the Supreme Court have made of the U.S. political system. As representatives of all three branches of government attend this unhappy family reunion, the living consequences of the Roberts Court’s decisions, and their corrosive effect on democracy, are plain to see."
