Everything I wanted to say in one convenient post. Bless this post.
So many attractive men, but they’re so stupid. So, so stupid.
It’s pretty clear from these, though, that they’re not inherently stupid, but kept ignorant by the religious leaders who told them as children that they had all the answers and there was no need to have any curiosity about these things. Some of these questions show such complete lack of understanding of basic scientific facts (like the established human fossil record) that it can’t be anything but intentional repression by the people who brought them up and still preach to them today. How else do you explain the fact that some of them (more than one! incredible) think that “Lucy”is the only known fossil of a human ancestor?
The problem isn’t the intelligence of individuals - I’m sure most if not all of these people are rather bright in their own ways. The problem is the patriarchal, repressive, downright backwards religion that’s had a stranglehold on this country and its people for the past 150 years.
