The Sheer Number of Young-Earth Creationists and Intelligent Design Proponents

It is difficult to work out the precise number of anti-evolutionists there are in the world, but an experiment to illustrate the sheer number of them has been proposed.

If you took all the young-earth creationists and proponents of Intelligent Design, and laid them down head to foot along the equator, presumably some of them would drown, or get run over or eaten by lions.

Sounds like an experiment which will produce useful results whatever its outcome, doesn’t it?   :-)

    You’re horrible! Shameless indeed. But it would make for an interesting experiment!

  • Kevin

    Some Creationists will take this seriously. Look at the lack of empathy due to your beliefs in evolution? LOL

  • Jeff Carter

    I heard this same line applied to Twilight fans… 

    Both would be fine with me.

  • Dos Tu Mai Kielle

    So cute. I propose we take up this experiment in the hopes of increasing our race’s average IQ.

  • randall.morrison90

    So, what you are saying without coming right out with it is thatif we can’t shut up the creationists lets just find a way to kill them outright?

  • James F. McGrath

    No, and I am certain that the person who made the original verion which was about Twilight fans didn’t actually want to see any of them come to actual harm, either.

    And of course, if the earth is flat then presumably they would be in little danger anyway.
