More On GOP Anti-Intellectualism

From Bill Maher this weekend:


That's a member of the US House of Representatives (and thus a lawmaker) denying one of the foundations of mondern science. Really.

From Talkingpointsmemo:

"I believe I came from God, not from a monkey so the answer is no," he said, laughing, when asked if he subscribes to the theory. Later in the segment he added, "I don't believe that a creature crawled out of the sea and became a human being one day."
As I wrote a month or so ago if we are a superpower in decline this is the reason. Simple and arrogant American scientific ignorance.

Someone please explain to me how microbes "adapt" to something that is toxic to it. Do they hold their breath's when the antibiotic comes along?

The guy had a pretty nervous laugh as if he was hiding something. I wonder if he secretly thinks about evolution and can't admit it in his district.
