    It is incredibly silly for people to get offended by this ad, in my opinion. However, as a national brand, it's not really wise to choose an advertising scheme that could be considered controversial or offensive by some so you don't end up potentially losing some of your target demographic.

    That's what annoys me, and I have a feeling you're mistaking what I hate, and thinking it means hatred of creationism itself.

    I notice the chimps in the ad didn't have any Dr. Pepper. So I guess the apes posting in discontent on facebook have identified themselves clearly.

    Oh - I love it!

    I can't believe some people still don't understand the theory of evolution - and I'm sure they'd complain just as much if God was holding a 6-pack of it, too.

    I know I'm not the only one, but I just don't see where belief in God and acceptance of the theory of evolution are mutually exclusive.
