According to Gallup, 46% of Americans believe God created human beings in their present form sometime in the last 10,000 years. This is pretty consistent with past surveys, and over the last 30 years an average of 45% of Americans have responded that we did no evolve but were created by A Supreme Being.
Are you kidding me? It seems about half of our population views The Flintstones as an accurate depiction of the Stone Age. Don’t get me wrong; I’d like to believe my ancestors had pterodactyl-powered record players and wise-cracking elephant vacuum cleaners, but I wouldn’t bet on it.
What exactly do Creationists think happened to all those dinosaurs? Did we eat them? Was there a war between our species to see who would rule the planet? On second thought, maybe there was a war.
They should make a new Flintstones where dinosaurs launch a sneak attack and devastate the human population. Bedrock would be left in ruins, and it would be up to Fred and Barney to lead the resistance movement to not only save mankind but to lay the groundwork for the eventual victory over our reptilian foes.
If that’s what Creationism is all about, it sounds awesome and you can sign me up. If nothing else it’s more interesting than looking at a thousand specimens of some gay finch and trying to spot some microscopic differences between them.
