The Gallup Study opens the door to more questions than answers about changing moral values with respect to animals. No one wants to see Fido in the laboratory with electrodes coming out of his head, but the plight of monkeys seems to affect the young more than the old.
It is comepletely evident to me and I am certain to many of you that even if these protestors cannot name it, they are responding at a gut level to injustice. To oppression. And simply want freedom from antiquated structures of thought and power that are killing our world.

The most interesting strategy employed by anti-evolutionists over the last century and a half has been to report that "Darwinism is Dead" or "Evolution has Collapsed." The exercise is all but meaningless in terms of scientific discussion.
