Evolution, What Evolution?

A British film about the life of Charles Darwin cannot find a distributor in the United States.

US distributors have resolutely passed on a film which will prove hugely divisive in a country where, according to a Gallup poll conducted in February, only 39 per cent of Americans believe in the theory of evolution., an influential site which reviews films from a Christian perspective, described Darwin as the father of eugenics and denounced him as "a racist, a bigot and an 1800s naturalist whose legacy is mass murder". His "half-baked theory" directly influenced Adolf Hitler and led to "atrocities, crimes against humanity, cloning and genetic engineering", the site stated.
In another example of the lack of evolution...The 9/12 march organizers are saying that there were over a million of 'em in DC this weekend to protest Obama's policies and pretty much everything else since the 19th century...other, more official, estimates have it at about 60,000 tops.

Maybe this wording on one of the signs seen over the weekend in DC helps explain some of it?

"Obama, we have waken up to your evil plans to destroy our country. Take your racist unamerican Acorn groups and arrogant wife back to your own country and strip their rights away!"
Just makes you proud to be an American doesn't it?
