can natural selection, ironically, help with this?

According to Nancy Pelosi's daughter, who just made a documentary about evangelical christians, there are 50 million people in the US who don't believe in evolution. And, according to a recent New York Times article, 47 million people in the US now don't have health insurance...

If only those two similarly sized groups represented the same people...

You know...?

You do the math.

kind of. i was actually thinking something a little more malicious. i was thinking that if the same people who don't believe in evolution are the same people who don't have health insurance, then maybe natural selection will take over and eliminate them so they can't propogate their backwards opinions. if they don't have health insurance, they won't have as much opportunity for long, prosperous life.

unfortunately, that's all just (mean) wishful thinking and your assessment is much more accurate. oh well.
