There is absolutely no way a pizza would last that long on top of a Labrador retriever.

Top 5 misconceptions about evolution: A guide to demystify the foundation of modern biology.
Here is an infographic to help inform citizens. From my experience most people who misunderstand evolution are actually misinformed about what science is and how it operates. That said, here are five of the biggest barriers faced when one explains evolution - I have faced these and they are documented in the literature.
I hope you can build on my work and improve the communication between the scientists and the public.
Want to do more? If you want to donate to the cause of science education I suggest the National Center for Science Education http://ncse.com, your local university, or an equivalent organization. Volunteering at schools and inviting scientists into classrooms are two ways to encourage an informed society. Attend hearings if school boards start questioning evolution’s role in public curriculum. Raise a storm if anyone tries to ban science. Plus, it never hurts to reblog a well made evolution post.
Thank you followers for all your support!
Highly evolved infographic there.
Of course when you are arguing with people who really, really sincerely believe that Jesus of Nazareth could have ridden a velociraptor into Jerusalem, that climate change is a liberal conspiracy, that President Obama is a foreign born Muslim and that fossil fuels were “put” there by God for us to use and will never run out, I’m really skeptical that any rational discussion is possible. What does happen is that a few of these people, who have been lied to all their lives, eventually break out into the bigger world and meet people they respect and like and discover they are smart/queer/liberal/Christians/evolutionists and their whole world view begins to crumble as they learn it is all LIES. If you didn’t insist the Bible was literally true to begin with (at least the parts you happen to agree with and ignore those inconvenient parts about rich men in the kingdom of God and eating with the unclean) you wouldn’t have this problem. But as the one pastor says on the HBO special, if the Bible tells him 2+2=5 he’s going to believe it.

-Princess Jiggles to Jaba the dog toy
The tongue on Princess Jiggles rather than dead Jabba toy is especially hilarious. it’s a fluffy Corgi too — not a sleek Pem or Cardi but a FLUFFY
- if you were up to date your computer was probably running windows 95
- there was no standard word processing application (I used Word Perfect, who remembers that one?)
- “the internet” was usually synonymous with “AOL” (although some folks used Prodigy or Compuserve)
I alternated between CompuServe, Prodigy and AOL because you could get a month free. You’d have to try lots of different phone numbers to dial up on your modem in case the local one was busy and it was always really bad if you had to dial long distance.
unless of course they are of “SHAME ON YOU” and that God and the author do not approve.
