Poll: 2 + 2 = 5

Most Americans believe that God created humans in their present form, according to a new CBS poll; only 15% think Darwin had it right – that humans evolved from less advanced life forms over millions of years in a non-divine process.

This result joins polls saying that most Americans think Saddam was behind 9/11, or that we found WMD’s in Iraq.

What is your opinion about these polls?

(A) Most Americans must be either jaw-droppingly stupid or dangerously misinformed.

(B) It’s scary that these are the same people who vote.

(C) The strength of our democratic system is that it respects diverse points of view (except for you secular homo abortionists).

(D) Media polling and he-said/she-said reporting about matters of scientific fact as if they were merely matters of personal opinion degrades society, subverts education and undermines democracy.
