And screw you very much.  We'll have to see what we can find over here to export your way.  :-D

And yet, they gave us Ray Comfort.  Something screwy going on over there.

I must aknowledge in my country, Mexico, the science education problem is something like yours ;)

Although beauty contestants may be not a standard sample from USA population, there are these results to be taken into account: Gallup poll among Americans, in december2010 shows 40% believe in Creationist view, 38% believe in Theistic evolution, and 16% believe in Naturalistic evolution. I think "math" parody video shows the best answer to this illiterate or perverse question, "do you believe in evolution?", and it is "Is that a joke?" (the one a science educated person -no matter the age or professional activity- should respond).

We're talking about Miss USA who gets to compete in the Miss Universe pageant. Not Miss America.
Comment by Park Bierbower on June 29, 2011 at 5:32pm
I'm sorry, I must be missing something, but the miss america website says that the winner for 2011 was from nebraska.  anyone know what thats about?  maybe thats where she was born, but I don't see why that would be listed on her info for having won.  I must be missing something here.
Comment by Alice on June 29, 2011 at 5:19pm
It is very surprising though, that a self professed science geek would win Miss America - I didn't think they have those values.  Perhaps she had other 'assets'.

No offense, but how is she any different than most of your politicians and dignitaries?
Comment by Jennifer R on June 29, 2011 at 12:04pm
I think we should start a separate topic for this discussion instead of pinging everyone's inbox.

The way I express it is, "I accept the fact of the evolutionary theory".
