Gallup: Republicans are Smarter

Filed under: Democratic Idiocy,Polling Data,Republicans,Science — Sisyphus @ 4:56 am

Gallup tells us what we already know:  that in general, Republicans are the Americans likely enough to question the idiotic theory of evolution:

The majority of Republicans in the United States do not believe the theory of evolution is true and do not believe that humans evolved over millions of years from less advanced forms of life. This suggests that when three Republican presidential candidates at a May debate stated they did not believe in evolution, they were generally in sync with the bulk of the rank-and-file Republicans whose nomination they are seeking to obtain.

Independents and Democrats are more likely than Republicans to believe in the theory of evolution. But even among non-Republicans there appears to be a significant minority who doubt that evolution adequately explains where humans came from.

The data from several recent Gallup studies suggest that Americans’ religious behavior is highly correlated with beliefs about evolution. Those who attend church frequently are much less likely to believe in evolution than are those who seldom or never attend. That Republicans tend to be frequent churchgoers helps explain their doubts about evolution.

If “stupid” is the answer, “liberal” was probably the question. We’ve all known this for quite some time. Gallup just confirmed it.

Now, we get to see the moonbats scramble to refute these findings, and/or defend the Copernican/Darwinian/Marxist cabal of fraudulent pseudoscientific knowledge. It always amuses me when they do that. Have at it, treefrogs!

UPDATE: Sheer idiocy. This is pretty stupid, too.

  1. Sissyphus,

    You are under attack by the Liberal media! http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/276111/for_brownback_blog_support_may_be_a.html

    In the name of Jesus I rebuke these Godless infidels with all of my might. You and your Blog will remain in my prayers and that of my family.

    Jesus come quick! The Liberals are gaining steam and we need to stop them!

  2. Finally a poll that is 100% right with no margin of error. Might I add another possible question:

    If “Evil, America-hating, cowards” is the answer then the “What is a Liberal?” is the question.

    I have arranged a Sunday School phone circle to pray for Senator Sam Brownback, this blog, and all Christian Conservatives. Please feel free to call upon me if there is anything I can do.

  3. I don’t mind telling you that this is really scary. You’ve certainly got us liberal treefrogs on the ropes by showing how so many people in America are gullible fools. At least a few have soem sense though so all is not lost.

  4. Sam Brownback should sponsor a Nobel Prize-type award for Creation Science. It would establish him as the most pro-intelligent design candidate (and the smartest candidate!).

    The rest of the world can be blessed with our contributions to bible-based science.

    It would be a glorious day of life and liberty.

  5. Sisyphus, I’m sorry to see the MSM once-again trying to blur the lines between faith and satire and, in doing so, calling into the question the intent behind your blog. Clearly, these reporters, no doubt East-coast, private school elitists, do not understand the urgent need to re-instate a true Believer in the seat of the Presidency and bring biblical law back to the fore in this country. Or, perhaps more insidiously, they do in fact understand the urgency here and are using their powerful positions as Satan’s mouthpiece to convince the gullible and misguided “Independents” who seem to sway elections so often these days, that your blog and, hence, Sen. Brownback’s campaign is just a farce. I urge you to carry on the good fight to get Sen. Brownback elected and ensure that that the Bible is enshrined as the foremost authority in American law.

  6. “You are under attack by the Liberal media!”

    Good. Their bluster just shows them for the extremist loons they are.

    “If “Evil, America-hating, cowards” is the answer then the “What is a Liberal?” is the question.”

    Very, very true.

    “I don’t mind telling you that this is really scary. You’ve certainly got us liberal treefrogs on the ropes by showing how so many people in America are gullible fools. At least a few have soem sense though so all is not lost.”

    Good to hear it- tremble in your boots, leftards!

    That’s a pretty good idea, actually.

    “Sisyphus, I’m sorry to see the MSM once-again trying to blur the lines between faith and satire and, in doing so, calling into the question the intent behind your blog.”

    They call this blog a satire in a feeble effort to dilute the power of the truths it espouses. It’s the only smear they can use against it, being out-argued on every issue of substance.

  7. That is an odd and interesting insight into the twisted mind of a treefrogs that they would claim Sysphus is satire his Biblically correct views on geocentricism. To believe otherwise and claim to be a Biblical literalist is hypocritical. As in creation a day means a day so a circle means a circle when it comes to the shape of the earth and fixed means fixed for the geocentric. Only a fuzzy brained moonbat would think one part is correct in The Bible and the others wrong.

    The media aren’t liberal!
    Some are liberal, some are conservative.

    If there really was a liberal conspiracy, this poll would never have been published, in fact with all the O’Reilly’s, Ann Coulter’s and Pat Robertson’s around, I’d say there are more conservative media than there are liberal media.

  15. That just means that Republicans are more out of touch with the way the the Universe works than other people. Of course, evolution comes in secondary to other issues, so I don’t oppose the Republican part particularly.

    Of course, after reading this blog, I must admit that some men seem not to have evolved at all.

  19. All of this evolution hooey that the leftiloons wants to shove down our throats just proves how truly ignorant they really are. The depth of their stupidity is endless. When Sam Brownback is elected, and I truly believe he will be our next President, Praise God!, we might be able to send our children back to public schools. Sam will allow Jesus back in the classroom as the gay agenda, the whole evolution propaganda, and false science will be swept into the guter with the trash.

    It’s not an ad hominem if it’s true. Then, it’s merely an observation.

    “When Sam Brownback is elected, and I truly believe he will be our next President, Praise God!, we might be able to send our children back to public schools.

    All decent Americans most certainly hope so.

  22. @Mrs. Gaines and other female posters, here are some quotes that will help you understand exactly who you are siding with:

    “Lots of women will pretend that they were “raped” in order to get a lighter sentence. Plus, AS WE ALL KNOW, EVEN THE ONES WHO ARE GENUINELY RAPED BEAR PART OF THE BLAME FOR BEING RAPED, in that they dress provocatively, drink liquor, or associate with questionable people. I think giving lighter sentences to these women is a terrible example and will encourage promiscuity. They must take responsibility for their actions.”
    Comment by DPS

    “Similarly, government should have policies to promote women’s natural urge to raise children. For example, government should mandate lower wages for women or perhaps even prohibit women from working, so they have less incentive to leave their homes. We should, of course, ban abortion, so malingering women can’t avoid their natural urges. And, finally, once we get more originalist judges in the courts, WE SHOULD TAMP DOWN THE FALLACIOUS ARGUMENT ONCE AND FOR ALL THAT THE EQUAL PROTECTION CLAUSE OF THE 14TH AMENDMENT APPLIES TO WOMEN.”
    Comment by Everett Volk

    “However, the rapist be required to help raise the child. LET’S REMEMBER THE DAMAGE SINGLE MOTHERS CAN DO A CHILD (as opposed to a father who’s a rapist?), nearly as great as that which double mothers can do. A child needs a mother AND a father. Without a father present who will teach the child not to be a homosexual liberal serial-killer.”
    Comment by Onan

    “This is also why I think women should be forced to strap their bosoms down in public. Men should not be subject to their vile temptations. A WOMAN WHO GOES OUT IN PUBLIC WITHOUT HER CHEST STRAPPED SHOULD BE SUBJECT TO CRIMINAL PENALTIES. WOMEN WHO WORK IN FIELDS OTHER THAN NURSING, CLEANING, COOKING AND HOUSEWIFERY SHOULD ALSO FACE SEVERE PUNISHMENT- AND PERHAPS I’M NOT GOING FAR ENOUGH.”
    Comment by Sisyphus

    “Women are better able to resist temptation than men, THEY THEMSELVES BEING SATAN’S PRIMARY TOOL OF TEMPTATION.”

    This isn’t a parody. Nor is it idiotic. Why do you say these things? Why do you hate American Christianity?

  25. Liberals have a black void where their heart should be. They were born with a heart and soul compliments of the Lord Jesus Christ but when they CHOSE to abandon God, to live in sin and deprivation, their hearts just withered away. It is so sad but for them it’s joyful for them to persecute decent Christian people. It is their single reason for exisiting.

  48. Skeptic, why do you want to touch syphilis? I hope your wife or girlfreind knows about your vile predilections. Perhaps you are a sodomite. They revel in all sorts repugnant perversions among which syphilis touching is the latest fad. It would however explain your skepticism about the good Senator Brownback’s ideas. Touch and be touched by Our Lord instead of syphilis but only in a non-sodomechanical way. On second thought, you better stay away from Our Lord. If you give Jesus syphilis we may be all doomed.
