This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

“PRINCETON, NJ — Forty-six percent of Americans believe in the creationist view that God created humans in their present form at one time within the last 10,000 years. The prevalence of this creationist view of the origin of humans is essentially unchanged from 30 years ago, when Gallup first asked the question. About a third of Americans believe that humans evolved, but with God’s guidance; 15% say humans evolved, but that God had no part in the process.” [Gallup]


If that’s so, why do I have so much problem walking upright?


Best line in the bit, given the stats above:

It is a simple fact of science that nothing correlates more with ignorance and stupidity more than youth

Does he really want to start down this route? Because from where I sit, fundamentalist religion is far more successfully correlated with “ignorance and stupidity”. If *that* became the qualification for disenfranchisement, the GOP wouldn’t have any votes left…

In their heart of hearts many of that 46% don’t believe that the world existed before they were born–it’s here for them and them alone..

Us’n are more stupiderer then I thot. Whot a relief.

So glad I stopped at the liquor store on the way home. Pimms cup, anyone? The summer outdoor drinking season has finally begun in the PNW.

@Mistress Cynica: Finally you can use the cocktail corner! Spring has sprung! Well, keep some in reserve. I’ve been working on a Thought at Bedtime that started off light and has gone dark and depressing and has now taken more time than one should spend on a blog post.

@SanFranLefty: Oh, dear. I may have to break out the ice cream and fresh strawberries.
