Close encounters of the Canadian kind

Posted in Skepdude by Skepdude on March 17, 2009

Anyway, via Pharyngula we get a link to this poll which asks the following question:

Do you believe in Evolution?

  1. Yes
  2. No
  3. I won’t answer a question about my religion

WTF? Is this meant to be a joke? I mean it has to be right, the website masters can’t be so stupid as to actually think evolution is a religion, can they? But wait, as of right now 2% have chosen #3. So if we could generalize from this small sample I would say that we can infer that at least 2% of the Canadian population is damn stupid! Now I wonder what that percentage would be for us over here in the US? I dread what the answer may turn out to be!

    2% have picked option #3
    But ALSO, 43% have picked option #2

    So we can reasonably conclude from this, that 45% of people responding to this poll are ignorant fools, not just the 2% you cite

      True, but I guess some people can be ignorant of the facts without being “damn stupid” as I put it, so I gave them the benefit of the doubt. But the 2 percent are just plain old morons if they think evolution is a religion.
