    Well, that is how opinion polls work.

    Oh, I definitely understand. And, sad as it is, sometimes facts are quite unpleasant. But, that doesn't change them any. It's usually best to just face them.

    Yep.

    Christianists (American Taliban) are co-opting Christianity. We all know a majority of Christians are not like the hate-filled people in that link, but too few speak out against them, and too many support them: buy thier books, attend their lectures, donating to them money...

    This is truly sad but not very surprising.

    I couldn't believe how many rather intelligent individuals I worked with as a nuke (these were nukes themselves) didn't believe in evolution. One guy didn't even come off to me as overly religious and yet he was arguing that because there were so many "holes" in the Theory of Evolution, that it couldn't be true. He never actually said that it was likely God that made us as we are or anything like, just denied Evolution.

    I think with some people, the thought that we are just smarter apes is frightening and therefore the anger against evolution theory. It's hard to think of yourself as an animal sometimes yet that is all we are. Just another animal that lives and dies on a planet with 1000's of other animal species doing the same. Happy New Year!

    That's kind of bad though, especially with Tigons and Ligers which are cross between lions and tigers depending on which parent is of which gender. And apparently they are fertile.

    Which is why I tend to never believe polls.


    The more honest way to present this would have been to say that 500 of the 1,000 Americans polled denied evolution....



    Not "1/3 of Americans deny evolution."

    I thought ligers weren't fertile?

    Female ligers are fertile. Male ligers are not fertile. I have no idea why.
