New Gallup Poll Shows Christian Americans Are Overwhelmingly Idiots

Posted by Clamence/The Chaplain on December 21, 2010

From a new Gallup Poll: “Four in 10 Americans, slightly fewer today than in years past, believe God created humans in their present form about 10,000 years ago. Thirty-eight percent believe God guided a process by which humans developed over millions of years from less advanced life forms, while 16%, up slightly from years past, believe humans developed over millions of years, without God’s involvement.”

Read more about the results of the poll here. Note that one’s education level is directly proportional to the likelihood of believing the falsehood that humans were created 10,000 years ago. Christians would probably argue, as I have heard them do, there is a liberal conspiracy in universities. This conspiracy–which must be very well organized to keep all universities in line across the country and world–has as its aim to spread the lies of evolution! At least, that’s what I’m told.

    If there is a conspiracy at work here, it is the conspiracy of fundamentalist Christians intentionally spreading the falsehood of Young Earth creationism.

      As dsc01 so aptly put it “their mythology requiring a knowing rebellion against the Truth”, only for fundamentalists, it’s a knowing rebellion against truth with a “t”.

        I guess fundamentalists project their own deliberate refusal to accept facts onto unbelievers, turning it, in their typical fantastical style, into a spiritual rebellion against the Supreme Omnipotent Godhead.
