Again with Texas
Was the Flinstones a documentary or a cartoon show that riffed on the Honeymooners? A third of Texans might believe that humans co-existed with dinosaurs.
In light of the battle going on in Texas to "improve" the curriculum, that percentage may rise in the future.

Can you believe that the national debate in this country lately is whether or not we should "believe" in science or the bible? Apparently you can't have it both ways. What century is this again? And all this from the country that leads the world in producing weapons of mass destruction. sheesh. Can you spell c o n s p i r a c y to dumb down the populace?
