Evolution or Fantasy

Not Very Bright has started a survey, and the results, while not surprising, are very disappointing.

It should be no surprise that a parade of Not Very Bright people are in charge of South Carolina. I suspect an average IQ of about 69 (Intellectually Deficient) could be found in the creationsim subset in the survey.

Hey, thanks for the mention.

Evolution does not explain the stupidity of state legislators, that's for sure. Somewhere, somebody struck a bunch of them with the stupid stick.

On the other hand, there are at least two bright spots in the responses. Rep. Mulvaney indicates he did not sleep through biology in either high school or college -- so he's probably competent to make legislation on agriculture and health -- maybe he should be appointed chairman of both committees.

And despite getting the wrong answers, Rep. Cotty and Sen. Martin have what appears to be the vestiges of a healthy sense of humor. They may be open to rational argument.
