First as to speech. That privilege rests upon the premise that
there is no proposition so uniformly acknowledged that it may not be
lawfully challenged, questioned, and debated. It need not rest upon
the further premise that there are no propositions that are not
open to doubt; it is enough, even if there are, that in the end it is
worse to suppress dissent than to run the risk of heresy. Hence it
has been again and again unconditionally proclaimed that there are
no limits to the privilege so far as words seek to affect only the hearers
beliefs and not their conduct. The trouble is that conduct is almost
always based upon some belief, and that to change the hearers belief
will generally to some extent change his conduct, and may even evoke
conduct that the law forbids.

"The argument that the literal story of Genesis can qualify as science
collapses on three major grounds: the creationists need to invoke
miracles in order to compress the events of the earths history into
the biblical span of a few thousand years; their unwillingness to
abandon claims clearly disproved, including the assertion that all
fossils are products of Noahs flood; and their reliance upon distortion,
misquote, half-quote, and citation out of context to characterize the
ideas of their opponents."
