Conservatives Ditch Bible, Prefer Playboy

MOST LONDONERS BELIEVE that man evolved as a result of evolution. In a poll by think tank Theos, 37% said that evolution removed the need for God. 28% believed in theistic evolution - the idea that evolution is God's plan. 11% believed in intelligent design - the notion that humans evolved by a process of evolution which required the special intervention a higher power at key stages. Just 17% believe that human beings were created solely by God within the last 10,000 years. Of course, it's depressing to think that so many grown adults cling onto fairytales and cult fantasies (which is what religion is, effectively). But the vast majority of us accept the science of Darwin's theory of evolution. As the report says: "A significant number of people in the UK believe that you can't do both God and Darwin. Strangely, this is one issue (the only one perhaps) that 'fundamentalists', atheist and religious, are likely to agree on." Speaking of religious fundamentalists, there was other heartening news this week, with the revelation in the US that Conservatives (who tend towards the Christian right) are the biggest consumers of porn. Gee, there's a surprise. If there's one thing bible-bashers do best it's hypocrisy. Benjamin Edelman of the Harvard Business School said, "Some of the people who are most outraged turn out to be consumers of the very things they claimed to be outraged by." Uh huh, sounds like the gospel to me. It also turns out that the 27 states who passed laws banning gay marriage boast 11% more porn subscribers than states that don't restrict gay marriage. And 8 of the top 10 pornography consuming states voted for John McCain in the presidential election. You've been found out - there's a Playboy hidden in between the pages of your bibles, and God knows what else... (Pictured above right: a porn star and a conservative Christian. Ain't that sweet).

Creationism is a money-making scam perpetrated on the gullible by modern-day snake oil salesmen.

Anyone wanting to arm themselves against creationists should watch this:

BINGO!!!!

You're so right about that. Religious hypocrisy is one of the major reasons I'm not into the church.

And between us, you probably could've striked 'Londoners' and inserted 'Baltimoreans' or the moniker of citizens of any major American city and the numbers would likely not change. I learned long ago that people are sheep who crave a shepherd.

This is not surprising. Firstly, most people are intelligent, and prefer free thought over organised religion. Also, this is not the first time the right, extreme or otherwise, have come into contact with scandal - think about all of the rent boys employed by Conservative MPs, or the amount of extramarital affairs conducted, or that evil hawk Sarah Palin having a daughter who conceived a child out of wedlock...

Sanya, I beg to differ, most people are not intelligent, and they might think they prefer free thought, but actually the reverse is true.

And LOL @ "that evil hawk"...
