Specifically, read 40Days&40Nights by Michael Chapman. I’ll have a review up tomorrow. Because this is absofrickinlutely ridiculous–according to Crooks&Liars, a recent Newsweek poll shows that 48% of the American public rejects the Theory of Evolution.
Nearly half (48 percent) of the public rejects the scientific theory of evolution; one-third (34 percent) of college graduates say they accept the Biblical account of creation as fact. Seventy-three percent of Evangelical Protestants say they believe that God created humans in their present form within the last 10,000 years; 39 percent of non-Evangelical Protestants and 41 percent of Catholics agree with that view.
41% of Catholics? Over 50 years ago, Pope Pius XII, and more recently, POPE JPII DECLARED support for evolution, if not Darwin specifically. What the hell is going on? All kidding aside, I don’t want to live in a country with that many ignorant people. This is truly, truly scary. The dumbing-down of America is running full speed ahead.
God help us all.
