In dubious honour of Darwin's birthday, Parade Magazine wrote a dreadful article
with an equally ridiculous poll
Obviously, that poll is just screaming to be crashed so go vote. Feel free to clear (or eat) your cookies and vote again.
The article irked me because it seemed to suggest that only “scientists and secularists” accept evolution while everyone else rejects it.
The poll itself is problematic because it seems to assume evolutionary theory begins and ends with Darwin, that evolution is something that happened in the past rather than something that is ongoing, and finally that the only nonscientific alternatives are related to God. If the superstitions of a bunch of bronze-age goat herders can be a valid response to a question of modern science, why not other superstitions too? At least Raelianism
Can we please do something about this nonsense? Poll crashing isn’t enough. I wrote them a letter
. Can we use the community here at AN to keep watch on publications like this and flood them with letters when they write so irresponsibly?
