If they are against morons like you they can't be all bad.

Let me tell you a secret, I work for a group that watches them. They aren't all that.

You have no idea about us and that is by design. That you can neither confirm nor deny what I say is irrelevant and completely within our operational and doctrinal parameters.

The message of the third as you see it is truly inconsequential and merely a diversion. Your reach in other areas has been noted, but we await consensus while all variables are computed and examined.

Do you really think that you had reached the final shell? For all I know there may be one above us.

If you were to go to the SOURCE of this claim:

"62% Of Americans Believe God Guided Evolution Of Life On Earth"

You will see that this is a misleading statement of what the poll shows.

http://cdn.yougov.com/cumulus_uploads/documen...

What it DOES show is a blend of beliefs that we've seen before:

http://cdn.yougov.com/cumulus_uploads/documen...

Human beings evolved from less advanced life forms over millions of years, and God did not directly guide this process = 21%[Secular evolution]

Human begins [sic] evolved from less advanced life forms over millions of years, but God guided this process = 25%[Theistic Evolution]

God created human beings in their present form within the last ten thousand years = 37%[Creationism]

Not Sure = 17%

THUS, ignoring the wishy washy "Not Sure" folks, we have 74% accepting the Theory of Evolution (either Secular or Theistic), and 37% are Creationist.

(rounding the math results gives a total of 101%).
