Let’s put creationism to a vote

One of the big talking points in the GMO labeling campaign is that a majority of people want their food labeled if it contains genetically modified ingredients. Why is Big Fooda trying to thwart the will of the people?

Good point. We live in a democracy. Why not allow people to vote on GMO labeling?

Okay. I suggest we put creationism to a vote. Let’s have state ballots requiring that creationism be taught alongside evolution as a valid theory.  After all, the latest Gallup poll says that 46% of Americans believe in it. That’s almost a majority. 41% of Democrats and 58% of Republicans believe in it.

What’s that you say? Creationism isn’t scientific, it’s religion. Well, there are scientists out there who would disagree. They have facts and evidence which show the holes in evolution. But, but…”The consensus of the scientific community agrees that evolution is scientifically sound. Those guys are using flawed science.”

Well, you see where I’m going with this.  The bottom line is both the science of creationism and anti-GMO are unsound and severely flawed. If you believe the anti-GMO activists whose facts are based on flawed science, you are in the same camp as creationists.
