I Am Very Frightened

This is too good not to post. Thanks to BPaul, I robbed this from his blog Institute of Jurassic Technology

This is a chart of public acceptance of evolution, by Country. Oddly Canada isn't listed.

Question number seven on citizenship quiz for Canada...the dominion of Canada forms part of the United Kingdom and the queen as titular head of state is represented by the Governor General. Long live the Queen! We will we will rock you!

And you want to move to Victoria?? I wonder who that city was named after...

Question number eight is even tougher...define a "double double". Bone up Guy...

OOOOps...I messed up. Got my Commonwealths mixed up with my United Kingdoms. Damn...I hope I don't get deported. Wouldn't be so bad if I could get double doubles elsewhere...

I’m going to assume Canada isn’t on the list because we would put all other countries to shame. Every Canadian accepts the theory of evolution. We are that evolved.

And the question for bonus points: How many evolutionists believe in Canada?

I believe the United States graph for Republicans vs Democrats would be about the same.

Not sure if that means anything or not, though.

The problem is brought about by extreamists on both "sides".
The account of creation and the theory of evil-lotion do not oppose in my opinion.
Whats wrong with a fastination with how things came together and have changed over time.
Or would one stand at a factory door and watch a new autombile roll out and say, "This car has always been a complete, running car from the beginning".
I suppose we should hate all of the gearheads of the world that buy the shop manuals and totally figure the entire automobile out.
Some people need to just get outside of their ass.

so... i don't get it? the people who don't believe in evolution are scary? and the ones who do believe in it are right? :)

i have been having interesting discussions with a christian friend of mine lately. i'm sure she believes in the story of creation, but i'll ask her anyway.

i believe a giant fairy in a pink tutu waved her magic wand and "poofed" us into existence.

do they have box for that on that questionnaire?

Moose, have they revised the manual again? Keep me posted.

Beth, nicely put, but doubtful.

Darev, I do.

Walt, they are one and the same.

Gearhead, good way to look at it.

Mel, good to see you are still out there. Welcome back, and holy shit is right.

Zoe, and you live in the heart of it.

Dalia, There is a Jesus dog and pony show that comes around here every once in a while and they believe that humans were around at the same time as dinosaurs. This regardless of Carbon 14 and all logic. Those are the ones that frighten me.

so, there *is* still hope for the human race.

canada would be at the top.

after all, evolution is only a theory.

creation is fact.

Creation is a belief, not a fact because it can't be proven. It doesn't even make sense.
