Why do dumb people not believe in evolution?

(1) Most of them never went to a proper school.
(2) They had dumb parents.
(3) They were influenced by pastors.
(4) Retardation.
(5) Fill in the blank--------------------

They believe they're too important to have have evolved -- I believe that's the most common argument.

Perhaps because evolution was invented by a Brit and not an American?

I think most of the confusion results from a visit to a K Mart. Looking around, it doesn't appear as if our species is evolving...quite the opposite, in fact. However, Darwin spoke of species changing and adapting, not necessarily improving.

The myriad attempts of society to protect us from ourselves has started a devolution of humankind. We no longer need to be clever or to work hard to survive. Go ahead and drive like an idiot, there are so many belts and airbags you can't hardly hurt yourself.

We've created that so called foolproof society...full of fools. The law of unintended consequences is alive and well.

Technically evolution is not something to be believed, as science is NOT faith. There is evidence that supports the theory of evolution, and many dismiss it with disbelief as if they were being lied to. And yet others feel science conflicts with their faith, probably because of literal interpetations. If the "faithful" had any imagination, they could understand that science was merely describing the mechanisms and methods of their creator.



edit: Oh, that answer is 4) Retardation.

This creator that you speak of, did he rest on the 7th day?
