Meh. History and Discovery are both kind of bunk anyways. History has always been the World War II Channel (even though they have a separate Military History Channel!) until recently, when they started showing reality bullshit that didn't have anything to do with History. How is "Ice Road Truckers" or "Ax Men" historical?
Discovery has the same reality bullshit too but at least their name doesn't specifically disallow it. Still, I think both (and TLC, and A&E) are in decline. :-\
But if they started turning the Science Channel into some generic reality lifestyle network, then we'll have problems. >:-(

But yeah. Of all the reasons to hate Discovery and History, being too heavy-handed with evolution isn't one of them (because they're not). Hate reality TV, not reality.

expect them anyway.

A better alternative is to seek out that which you don't agree with, and try to discover what parts of what they say and why they think so are true.
That way you don't end up thinking 'everybody's crazy but me', and you get insight into truths you don't know about.
But hey, look at me, talking to a Fundie as if he were reasonable!

By the way, how ARE Anni, Bjorn, Benny and Agnetha? And how does being the child of four people work out?

"I always expected the men with the huggie jackets to show up at my door."
Awwwwwwwwww, it wants a hug.

Nothing fundie about this. I always end up doing the same thing; the History and Discovery channels have a bad habit of giving unwarranted time and attention to woo-filled bullshit. Have you ever seen one of THC's Bible Code or 2012 programs? They'll have you going crazy too, I guarantee it.

My guess is that you already have experience with the men with the huggie jackets.

I've found that NEVER watching any of those "Discovery or History channels, etc... when they deal with God or the Bible is an excellent way NOT to have a heart attack! I end up screaming at the TV screen "WHAAAT! Are you CRAZY!? What's WRONG with you!???" I always expected the men with the huggie jackets to show up at my door. So, I don't watch those channels anymore when the subject is God, the Bible, Prophecy, Jesus, etc..."
Then I suggest you never watch BBC America, if you know what's good for you - least of all for Sir David Attenborough's series of epic "Life" documentaries.
And Sir David Attenborough is an acknowledged Humanist, so...!

I feel kinda the same way about those programs only I wonder why they give those subjects any time at all.
..and how bout some air time to document the FSM!

I tend to skip all those stupid Bible code, etc. shows. That's not why I started to watch the History Channel - I wanted to see ancient battles analyzed, I wanted to learn the theories and such about things like the Antikythera mechanism, and I sure was interested in hearing about how much was lost when the library at Alexandira was destroyed. Maybe you need to skip all the things that don't agree with your narrow worldview.

"Facts are stupid things."
Bible's a forgery.
Deal with it.
