Does seem to cluster in the south, though.

Just seems like higher levels of concentration. Mostly for in the south they put their crazies right out on the front porch while other areas put them in homes & such.

When I want your opinion I'll read your entrails.

Since when have you been here?

Did they ban you?

That, but more so that "dumb" is a result of education or lack thereof, which strongly correlates with poverty.

Three guesses as to which regions of the US are poorest...

Southern Indiana gerrymandered the Mason-Dixon line so they could have Waffle House and dually trucks. As a result, "The South" starts a little farther north than many people think. Tongue

Anyway...I enjoy poking fun at southern stereotypes as much as the next person, but we have a lot of good forum members in The South and Seth in Oklahoma and Jerry DeWitt in Louisiana to boot.

So, yeah, I'd say there are some decent people below the Mason-Dixon Line. Thumbsup

I don't know any mainline popular atheists speakers/show creators that don't come from the south... there's Seth, AaronRa, Matt Dilihuanty and all the ACA, etc.

Forrest Gump seems cool.
Also, Bubba, Momma, and Lieutenant Dan.
Jenny's a flake though. Tongue

RE: Is there a single decent person below the Mason Dixon line?
I have some very good friends that live in Alabama. One is a wiccan, one is starting to look more atheist every day, and the other is a christian but not practicing. They are all very good people. That being said when I was visiting them I met many, many of the stereotypes you hear of down there. (I had a lovely conversation with a completely insane christian woman in the walmart parking lot in Scottsboro, AL)

I try to remember that when I read about all the crazy happening down there.

Someone in an earlier post mentioned that Poe married his first cousin. As someone related to that family through marriage (my aunt was married to a Poe) I can tell you...they are messed up. Thats not a good case for first cousin marriage Tongue

Lieutenant Dan isn't a southener. I think his accents more simply eastern/northeastern and the family flashback shows his ancestor being a Union solider Drinking Beverage
