piranha: red origami crane (Default)
the latest CBS poll on evolution is a doozy (thanks to [livejournal.com profile] zemblan for the pointer).

the entire thing copied from their pdf; not very long )

some people keep saying that showing such people disrespect is not the way to communicate effectively with them, and i agree that it isn't, but ya know -- i am stumped. i have no respect for willful ignorance, and that is what this is. i can sympathise with the motivation (which i think is mostly fear), but more and more americans seem willing to slide into this morass of disregarding reality in favour of faith. and what's more, they're eager to push it on those of us who don't believe as they do. if they didn't try that, i could just ignore it, but it shows democracy at its worst: the tyranny of an uneducated, fearful majority.

more (unhappy-making) polls on science.
