  1. this seems to indicate that it is churches that foster the ignorance. a nation can not compete on the world stage of ideas if so many of its people are so stupid.

    40 Percent Of Americans Still Believe In Creationism.A new Gallup poll, released Dec. 17, reveals that 40 percent of Americans still believe that humans were created by God within the last 10,000 years.
    "Views on human origins vary based on church attendance. Of those who attend church on a weekly basis, 60 percent believe in creationism while a mere 2 percent subscribe to "secular evolution".

    We should probably activate the national guard and annihilate all churches and mosques immediately.
  3. better idea. how about taxing them and use the money for science education?
  4. Lucrum


    Who is going to administer the funds, the federal government? That translates to what, 40% waste? Besides most our kids, religious or not, don't care about science anyway. They care more about TV and video games.

    You must not travel much. We can compete just fine on the world stage because the other actors up there are similarly and commonly even more "stupid".

    Free Thinker has obviously not calculated just how many people in other nations believe in similar religious theories, or even more "backwards" ones. but that's ok. if he/she had, then the post wouldn't be so anti-american and thus not worthy of posting here.

    Mr Free T;
    I see you are interested in the ''world stage of ideas.'' Fair enough;
    why dont you run your ''tax the mosque'' ,idea past the King of Arabia?????Dont bother asking him to tax churches/synagogues, they're illegal in Saudi Arabia.:cool: Not really an anti-Arab post; I like what the King of Arabia said on ''cut the american gasoline tax''!!

    Not everyone wants to live in high tax /micro/manage Europe;
    probably why our Bible believing/creation believing , founding fathers & Al Einstein, moved away..............LOL:D
