I was raised in a fundamentalist Christian church. In the 1940s when I was a teenager, I remember the preacher from time to time would make statements discrediting scientists. Two examples I still remember are: 'scientists say that Bumbees can't fly'. And 'scientists can create a kernel that looks and tastes like corn but will not grow, only God can make things grow'.
Back then we had no Tv and no Internet and no good way to check the truth of any statements. It has been more than 60 years since I have been to church.
my question is, does this practice continue in the US today?
