    I never said it was...But I want to say....Thank you Capt. Obvious.



    Why would you care what they think?



    Wow! the arrogance. That you would presume to speak for God, when in this post alone you have only disparaged his believers is astonishing...What a tool.
    I have only disparaged his believers who believe something that is provably false and refuse to look at any evidence. Particularly those who would actually lie to their flock in order to further this inaccurate belief. Those are the people I am criticizing. The majority of Christians are able to look at scientific evidence and come to rational conclusions based on it.

    Stop extrapolating everyone's posts into some blanket attack against all of Christianity. Your persecution complex is getting old.

    It's interesting that you think I'm trying to speak for God when I suggest God wants you to know the truth. Those aren't my words, those are His. Read your books.

    Yes. One such individual sits on the House of Representatives Science, Space, and Technology committee, and therefore has disproportionate influence over this nation's science policy. A man who rejects a lot of science. He got there because these types of people voted for him.

    Very much so. These nutbars actually campaign for creation in our children's science classes.

    That must mean "good for you".

    After all, such a devout Christian such as yourself would not actually say what it appears you are saying, right?

    Re: One-third of Americans reject evolution, poll shows

    In general people have a wide ranging set of beliefs on all matter of scientific subjects. You can run the same poll on the same group and instead ask their beliefs on whether sky scrapers can fall straight down and get a surprising number of people ignorant of the science. That rejection of the science would fall predominantly along political fault lines, though.

    The reason evolution is used so often as a proxy for general scientific knowledge is that many seem to find some pleasure in sticking a thumb in the eye of religion by picking the one avenue of science that seems to be at odds with the tenets of faith. But, ironically, those who love to draw this divide on evolution out into a broader scold of those dumb religious people are simply blaring their own ignorance in the process.

    You perceive that because of your own biases, not mine. Go cool off, you're clearly taking this way too personally.
