evolution

Three of the Republican presidential candidates said they do not believe in evolution. I wonder if they belive in gravity. Or the sun. Or birds. Why do they pick this one bit of science to "disbelieve" when there is just as much evidence of its truth as these other things?

I can't fathom a mind that is so unwilling to wake up.

*snort* I know who my mother will vote for.

My mother is one of those people who not only don't believe in evolution, she's actively OFFENDED by the idea. I'd like to think it's just due to her revulsion toward monkeys, but I know it's deeper than that. She really believes the earth is only a few thousand years old. The first time she told me this, I was speechless.

My mother is the reason George W. Bush is the president (and was re-elected). She sees nothing wrong with him, except that he kind of looks like a monkey. That upsets her.

You've hit the nail on the head there. I have met your mother - that is, others like her - and I realize that nothing I say will ever make a difference.

My sense is that this group is susceptible to suggestion by a specific group. If that group says X is Y then X is Y and no amount of logic will convince them otherwise. They do not think for themselves. So there is no point trying to get them to see any facts at all.

I would be really interested in anyone who manages to get through to that 34% or whatever it is right now. I want to know how they do it.
