That is ostensibly your opinion and I respect that. Obviously, most Americans ( included educated ones I might) add disagree with you. Calling them un-educated is of course , name calling, not an argument based on evidence.

There is no other conclusion. You don't get to say "well, 1+1=3 and that is my opinion." You can have an opinion, but you need to defend it if it deals with science.

400 scientists out of how many hundreds of thousands? Every group has a moonbat wing.

Case in point here --- name calling, no evidence presented. No wonder you're not getting anywhere with the majority of Americans.

We have so-called conservatives who fight FOR willful ignorance and embrace and accelerate the dumbing down of America. If "moonbat wing" doesn't fit scientists who should know better, then who can the tag be applied to?

And of course, my underlying point that .0001% or so isn't a meaningful statistic stands.

The theory ( emphasis ) of evolution is not the same as 1 + 1 =2. That is why REASONABLE PEOPLE DISPUTE IT. Wrong analogy.

Agree. That is why both sides -- IDers and Evos need to present the evidence.

We have so-called conservatives who fight FOR willful ignorance and embrace and accelerate the dumbing down of America.

And you are assuming that these are ID supporters ? Our public schools have been saturated with nothing but EVOLUTION without any other ideas presented ( inspite of all the problems with it) for over 40 years. Of course our public schools have been very bad. What's your point ?

If "moonbat wing" doesn't fit scientists who should know better, then who can the tag be applied to?

The tag should only be applied to scientist who do not know better. Since you have not proven this to be the case with those who doubt Random mutation plus natural selection's ability to create the complexity of life, it doesn't apply here.
