Creationists Are Dumb and Ignorant - Newsweek
In one of its latest online photo-galleries titled "America the Ignorant" – or "Dumb Things Americans Believe" – Newsweek wrote that "remarkably high numbers of Americans believe the most unusual things…. Here's a sampling of the nuttiest."
Newsweek then goes on to give 11 evidences that prove how dumb and ignorant Americans really are. Not surprisingly, at the very top of their "ignorance" list is the large number of Americans who don't believe in the theory of evolution.
According to the feature: "To mark the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth, Gallup thought it might be a good idea to poll Americans on their beliefs of the British naturalist's theory. But the results must have had Darwin spinning in his grave, since only 39 percent of Americans believed in the theory. The good news [from Newsweek's pro-evolution point-of-view]: only a quarter said they didn't believe it; the remaining portion either didn't have an opinion or didn't answer. (Also, only 55 percent correctly linked Darwin's name with the theory.)"
From Newsweek's perspective, however, there is still good reason to celebrate because "it appears that views may, um, evolve: younger people believe in evolution at far higher rates than older ones."
Sadly, this part of the Newsweek feature is true. This just proves how the educational establishment and many churches are failing to teach young people that biblical creation is a far more credible explanation of origins than Darwinian evolution. As Ken Ham points out in his book Already Gone, kids who attend Sunday school are especially prone to leave the church when they are inundated with evolutionary dogma.
Feature articles like "America the Ignorant" make it easy to understand why Newsweek is on the verge of becoming extinct. In fact, the whole company – not a copy of the magazine – was recently sold for ONE DOLLAR to a 91-year-old tycoon who was willing to take on the magazine's massive debt.
Based on the way Newsweek insults its creationist readers with truly dumb and ignorant features like this, Creation Moments from now on will refer to the magazine as Newsweak.
