The Science Guy takes aim at American ignorance

You remember Bill Nye, the Science Guy, don't you? He's been in the news lately.
"The Earth is not 6,000 or 10,000 years old," Nye said in an interview with The Associated Press. "It's not. And if that conflicts with your beliefs, I strongly feel you should question your beliefs."

Millions of Americans do hold those beliefs, according to a June Gallup poll that found 46 percent of Americans believe God created humans in their present form about 10,000 years ago.
It's hard to believe that nearly half of all Americans are ignorant twits. Sadly, they live in a religious bubble and will never see the real world. I'm appalled by their lack of diligence. They've never even tried to put their minds to work. These lackluster Americans have a name for their ignorance: faith. It's anything but admirable.
