    An interesting lede that I don’t believe:

    About 13 percent of Americans say they believe in evolution, and 11-year-old Nathan Tasker was feeling ready to take them on last week.

    The rest of the piece is worth a read. Just make sure there’s a nice clear spot on the wall to bang your head.

    BTW, Lydia attended CHAP a couple of times. She didn’t go to the creationism seminars, though. 🙂

    11-year-old Nathan should learn how to use Google.

    The very first hit on “how many Americans believe in evolution” is:


    which is a discussion of the poll results on the ID/creationism/evolution debate which explicitly deals with the 13% figure and how different poll questions result in different numbers.

    But when you are busy having your 11-year-old teach everyone how to lie about science, why use sticky things like numbers and facts?

    Gee, I don’t believe in gravity. Does that mean I can walk off the side of a cliff and not fall? You want evidence of evolution? How many strains of bacteria are resistant to antibiotics? There’s evolution at work!
