Re: teaching evolution in the south
I tried to explain basic evolution (I'm no scientist) to a fellow southerner not long ago. I explained natural selection and changes to populations over time. I brought up the vestigial "legs" in whales and selective dog breeding. His response?

"I didn't come from a monkey. And I ain't never seen a whale with legs."

RE: teaching evolution in the south
It's like these conservative christians in the south are their own worst enemies constantly perpetuating their cycle of ignorance, closed mindedness and backwardness. There is such an tremendous ocean of evidence for evolution and they stand in front of it with their eyes closed saying "you don't exist, you don't exist, you don't exist..."

You can lead a horse to water - but you can't make him drink.....


You can however stick a hose up his ass and give him a high speed enema.....


I haven't worked out all the details of how that relates to teaching evolution to southerners - but I think the concept has promise.....

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

The church has trained them to hate evolution, and treat it as if it's the devil's work.
Their brains slam shut at the mere mention of it.

These same idiots have no problem with the terms "domestic house cat" and "big cats" being related, that is evolution.

But they are the same "kind" so that's only micro-evolution...
Facepalm

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!
