CNN’s Lou Dobbs offered his own "facts" on evol … [Media Matters for America]

The National Academy of Sciences says:

The theory of evolution is one of these well-established explanations. An enormous amount of scientific investigation since the mid-19th century has converted early ideas about evolution proposed by Darwin and others into a strong and well-supported theory. Today, evolution is an extremely active field of research, with an abundance of new discoveries that are continually increasing our understanding of how evolution occurs.

Fucking TV knucklehead Lou Dobbs says:

The fact is that evolution, Darwinism, is not a fully explained or completely rigorous and defined science that has testable results within it.

The degree to which the average — and I mean average — person thinks they know something about any given subject is remarkable. The only antidote to this kind of spontaneous and boundless bullshitting by TV “personalities” is to ignore everything you hear, and where does that leave us?

Convinced that the people are the only safe depositories of their own liberty, and that they are not safe unless enlightened to a certain degree, I have looked on our present state of liberty as a short-lived possession unless the mass of the people could be informed to a certain degree.
–Thomas Jefferson to Littleton Waller Tazewell, 1805.

“I know no safe depositary of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power.”
–Thomas Jefferson to W. Jarvis, 1820.

Without a significant amount of quality education and discourse throughout life we are infinitely fucked. Garbage in, garbage out.
