    I'm lost.

    IF someone believes that God did anything .. they only believe that. IF they believe it, it doesn't make it fact.

    Point being, religion is belief .. that's all it is.

    This seems more of a reaction than an actual belief.

    It's "Democrats/Independents/Youth/Minorities/anyone who isn't an old angry white man accepts evolution, therefore I reject it."
    I imagine it has morphed into one of those ideas that are seen as attacking "traditional values". With that said, I would be interested in reading up on the methodology of the poll, to get a better idea of what exactly who and what they were asking. On such a contentious topic (which it in no way needs to be), those things can drive the response rather heavily

    To give you a comparison, this is as bad as saying that 33% of Americans believe that the Earth orbits the Sun.

    I am outraged by this.


    Yeah, it's beyond stupid, but get some traveling under your belt and you might realize stupidity isn't exactly in short supply in the world

    Actually you really do a disservice to the victims of the taliban when you attempt to draw such comparisons. In fact, next time this strikes you as a good idea why not look at this picture and remind yourself that you're trivializing this for nothing more than political points

    I think many people not from here fail to realize how huge america is, especially many Europeans (If I recall correctly you've spend some time living here and raiding us for our women folk).

    yeh its true and its something I learned very quickly, New England is almost a different country than Texas ( one example)

The notion of species is really a man made concept. How do we define what is a species and when it stops and when a new one begins? That's man made.
    Isn't it defined as when the two can no longer breed with each other?

    Thank God for the fundamentalist Christian, it's the only hope this country has to recover from the damage those like you have done.
