41% of Democrats are young-Earth creationists
Oh and what’s your point. That this makes it okay?
The point is that Democrats are the young party. The Republican creationists are the old party members. As the old Republicans die off the scales will be tipped. The Democrats will be the party backing creationist’s ideas. Might end up having more progressives that are Republican. And the left creationists will lean towards making the Democrat platform more socialist or communist.
You can’t be serious. Are you claiming that as old Republicans leave politics, they will be replaced by younger, evolutionist, atheist Republicans? And that the Democrats, being “young”, will not be replaced at the same rate? Come on now! :)
I’m not sure what point Shermer was trying to make in that article. It doesn’t surprise me at all that there are Liberals with anti-scientific ideas. We knew all along that the vast majority of our so-called “representatives” in Congress were religious, didn’t we?
What bothers me is that young off the farm Republicans that run for office are sweep up into a political dog eat dog world that they wish they never entered. The ones that make it in that world are ones with backgrounds like lobbyists and political scholars all with law degrees. The types that make up a swamp.
To answer your question, I do look out of step when you look at the age of the top leadership of the Democrats today. But looking at election night. I could notice the age difference in the two crowds. And the young democrats that, polling said, would back socialist or even a communist form of government. I think the Democrats are going to keep going after those votes.
As far as the Congressmen being religious, I think they are all religious and worship the god Dollar. :-)
