I wonder, since truth is obviously determined by a majority vote, How many people do I need to get to deny gravity before I can start floating around?

I don't have a professional looking survey to back it up, but from my position teaching about religion in a British secondary school with a fairly wide catchment-area demographic it really doesn't feel that way.

This was my immediate thought. How does one go about opposing evolution? Are they upset at evolution so far or are they just opposed to it going forward? Troll logic is funny sometimes.

"10% of people chose young Earth creationism – the belief that God created the world some time in the last 10,000 years – over evolution..
About 12% preferred intelligent design, the idea that evolution alone is not enough to explain the structures of living organisms..
The remainder were unsure, often mixing evolution, intelligent design and creationism together.
"

The remainder have it .. I make it 78% 'aren't sure' .. it seems the British aren't so stupid .. at least .. I agree with the majority Big Grin

Seriously??!?! This was the same guy? I didn't see any anti-gay rantings but I guess I missed it before you deleted it.
