I read a story about a missionary who met a Christian priest in Syria, around 1890, who still believed the earth was flat. What about the heretics who were burned at the stake for saying the earth was not the center of the world. Fundamentalists are keeping us in the middle ages. Israel's educational system seems to be going down the drain; are Israelis going to get dumber and dumber? Thank goodness we have some progressives in charge of our natural history museum - who use education of children to counter religious fundamentalists (evolution vs. creationists). Seems like you need more progressives to run your educational system. It seems unreal that at the beginning of the 21st century, we are actually regressing in the world, and not progressing. I never thought I would see the rise of religious fundamentalists in Israel or the USA - or in the world; or that a handful of progressive natural historians would galantly fight for the spread of scientific knowledge (truly heros).
