Miss America contestants on teaching evolution
Miss Alabama, "No, I don't believe in evolution and it shouldn't be taught in school."
The most common answer was. "We have to present both sides of the issue." The lunatics and the idiots are winning the argument. There is no, "both sides of the issue." you lip glossed cretins. There is no debate about evolution. Using the canard that it's only a "theory" therefore it isn't true goes against all scientific methodology. Anything that can't be definitively proved in a lab or in an equation remains a theory, thus Evolution can't be proved.
Not one iota of evidence, other than the idiocy of Creationists, has been found to disprove Evolution. Until someone finds a neanderthal skeleton with a Walkman or a Rolex, logic dictates that evolution is a fact. There is no other side of the argument.
Admittedly, the contestants are in a 'damned if you do, damned if you don't" dilemma
Miss America was won by Miss California, an admitted science geek who completely endorsed teaching evolution without venturing into the 'both sides' argument. There is some justice.
