Creationists Condemn Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s ‘Cosmos’ for Pro-Evolution Stance

Apparently, creationists are up in arms; demanding that they are given equal air time on the new Cosmos TV program to express their ideas alongside the evolutionary slant this show takes.

Then I suspect creationists are prepared, in turn, to provide equal air time to evolution based scientists on their own religious programs, right?

The hundreds, if not thousands of hours of religious broadcasts on countless religious networks are going to cede equal air time each week to secular science?  I’m not holding my breath on that happening anytime soon.

These demands potentially set a “can of worms” precedent.  I can’t help but wonder if the creationists  REALLY want to go down that path; if they thought this through all the way, or if this is simply a knee-jerk reaction to the fact that this new show is so wildly popular?

I’m guessing the latter MIGHT be the case.  This is an excellent example of “be careful what you wish for.”
