Liberals like to pretend this is true. They look a statistic like 60% of Republicans believe God created the Earth and that only 40% of Democrats believe that God created the Earth and assume that this means Democrats are more science based.

It is far more than that Jim. They take a number like the above and create an entire army of strawmen to battle with

Each person that believes God created the Earth agrees with the outermost fringe of some religious lunatic

These people then all want to force the children of others to learn that the Earth was created by a Turtle chasing a Hare or some other lib fantasy of how dumb their opponents are.

The amount of strawmen they can make from any given statment is awe inspiring and each of those is beyond dispute true, It can be proven some expert somewhere can attest to it.

IT is such a bizarre way to form one's beliefs. I can never really figure how someone can uses little bits of information to create this impenetrable world view and group all that disagree with you.

Then after doing that come to the table and say how inflexible your opponents are.

Not that both sides are perfect, but the above defines the GoofyHoofy experience, and that draws a huge crowd of loyal whatever they are.

Then as further proof I offer Obama. He builds these constructs that are so obviously just flat out juvenile in nature and yet so many adore them.

We are IMO at a unique time, and if folks do not wake up and continue following these people we are going to see unprecedentedly bad things happen in the USA.

You can not embrace what Obamaites are embracing and not end up with very bad outcomes. Envy, lies and deceit is not an agenda that ends well.
