Stupidity comes to Brunswick County, NC

In the form of the old “let’s teach Creationism in schools too” debate.  The article isn’t very long, but there are still several precious gems of ignorance that make it a worthwhile read.  Pearls of wisdom like this:

“It’s really a disgrace for the state school board to impose evolution on our students without teaching creationism,” county school board member Jimmy Hobbs said at Tuesday’s meeting. “The law says we can’t have Bibles in schools, but we can have evolution, of the atheists.”

How are you supposed to have a conversation with someone who actually thinks of evolution as an imposition?  How dare those “science” teachers force their “scientific” ideas on our young people?  There’s also this gem:

“I wasn’t here 2 million years ago,” Fanti said. “If evolution is so slow, why don’t we see anything evolving now?”

Yes.  In 2008 in North Carolina there is an adult of voting age who actually wonders why he can’t watch evolution taking place.  I should just print this out, laminate it and carry it around with me.  I’ll whip it out when I met someone who tells me how “charming” they think the south is.
