Lies, damned lies and statistics
PZ Myers is a biologist and associate professor at the University of Minnesota. He has a big chip on his shoulder about religion and Creationism. He has a popular blog where he writes articles that can whip some of his regular readers into a frenzy of blasphemy and hatred.
Recently, he stated that “Finally, a good use of the Bible” is using its pages to make a joint out of.
Now, you would think that a professor with such strong opinions would take facts and figures very seriously. The other day there was a poll on CNN’s website:
Do you believe in God?
Myers encouraged his people to vote and the figures rapidly went the other way to a whopping 67% ‘No’.
What this clever clogs did was to totally skew the poll and produce almost the complete opposite of the truth.
I can’t say I’m surprised because the Theory of Evolution depends upon fabrications, distortions and downright lies.
If he was half as clever as he thinks he is, Myers would stick to educating people, if that’s what he believes he’s doing. Maybe he’s not so sure. That would explain his continual ad hominem attacks.
