calls evolution "a myth" and backs up her claim with the question: if evolution is real, "why aren't monkeys still evolving into humans?"
Intelligent thought is the antithesis to religion. Organized Religions need people to believe in devils and witches. And the Ruling Elite needs Religion to keep the masses in check.
“Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s”
Religion needs Caesar and Caesar needs Religion.
Keep the serfs busy with witches and devils so that they do not see their pitiful lot in life. Make them beholding to Priests who tell them what to think and do.
Then the Caesar's (the ruling Republican elite) allow the Religions to continue so as to keep the serfs in place.
Works out well for the Priests and Caesar.
That is how it works.
