On Devils and Details

Okay, this is more than a little embarrassing ... or would be if my country didn't already have so many other things to be embarrassed about, from Iraq, to Gitmo, to health care for poor children (not to mention everyone else), to ... well, you get the idea.

Now it turns out, according to a poll being reported by Reuters, that more Americans believe in the existence of Satan than they do in the science of evolution.

That 82 percent of Americans believe in God, 79 percent believe in miracles and 75 percent believe in heaven is not particularly surprising. But the fact that 62 percent believed in the devil while only 42 percent accept the theory of evolution is disheartening. Almost as bad is the fact that the numbers of people who believe in UFOs (35 percent) and in witches (31 percent) come all too close to the numbers for evolution.

Many people think America has been singled out for God's favor. Apparently the party favors don't include sense.

Sure it makes sense, name one part of macro-evolution that has been proven. They've been trying for YEARS and every single thing they tried has been debunked. Now, try to debunk God without that lame "I can't see him" argument. Evolution has been SCIENTIFICALLY disproven, God can't be.
