Republican Devolution


Significantly fewer Republicans believe in evolution now than in 2009, according to a Pew Research Survey released Monday.

In 2009, 54 percent of Republicans believed that humans had evolved over time, but a survey conducted in March and April 2013 found that just 43 percent now thought so. The percentage of Democrats who believe that humans evolved over time was relatively unchanged between the two surveys: 64 percent said so in 2009, and 67 percent in 2013.

Several prominent Republicans have questioned the theory of evolution and claimed that it is controversial among scientists. Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R), during a failed presidential run, said that evolution was "a theory that's out there" and has "some gaps in it." Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) contended that "hundreds and hundreds" of scientists with Nobel Prizes believe in intelligent design. However, Mitt Romney, the GOP's 2012 presidential nominee, said that he believes in evolution. ...............................(more)

2. Who am I, why am I here?

So Perry thinks there's gaps huh.

I have my own theory on how life began.

Someone or something like God created earth and rested. Then, man was created, then man became lonely, so then woman was created, and nobody has rested since.

Seriously though, we all may have come from the sea or water, which is why NASA keeps looking for water on other planets, water is life, without it, we would be nothing, yes?

4. Creationism has become yet another measure of purity...

...among people increasingly obsessed with demonstrating purity.

All this purity testing will ultimately be self destructive for the party. I only wish it were self destructing fast enough for me to feel secure about 2014.

5. Kirk Cameron Attempts to Out-Think Stephen Hawking and Fails Miserably




by Simone Sanner
December 28, 2013

Rocket scientist and world-renowned unparalleled genius Kirk Cameron – just ask him, he will agree – challenged Stephen Hawking in an interview with TMZ regarding the answers to life, the universe, and everything.

“Professor Hawking is heralded as the ‘genius of Britain’,” said Cameron, “Yet he believes in the scientific impossibility that nothing created everything and that life sprang from non-life.”

While even a five-year-old has some glimmer of a clue how chemicals come together to create amino acids, Cameron seems to have missed that lesson, however Cameron continued, “ (Hawking) says he knows there is no Heaven. John Lennon wasn’t sure. He said to pretend there’s no Heaven. That’s easy if you try. Then he said he hoped that someday we would join him.”

6. From Chuck Norris to Kirk Cameron, Famous ‘Christians’ Say STUPID Things (Videos)

by Simone Sanner
December 30, 2013

While Kirk Cameron seeks to educate us in evolution and “life, the universe, and everything,” we here at AATTP thought we would take a minute from side-splitting laughter to appreciate other crazy famous Christians have said. Long on belief and short on fact, there seems to be a trend where anything goes, as long as you can wrap it up in a homely homily and tie it up with a big Jesus bow. Enjoy some of our favorite quotes ...

Chuck Norris, bemoaning the spread of Atheism online, said, “While you think your kids are innocently surfing the Web, secular progressives are intentionally preying on their innocence and naďveté. What’s preposterous is that atheists are now advertising and soliciting on websites particularly created for teens.” That’s right, folks, Atheists everywhere are stalking your children! There’s a fight over the hearts and minds of your kids! As opposed to Christians’ desire to merely mate with them while they are still young. Jut ask Phil Robertson. ...


Stephen Baldwin shows us his parenting skills with the following statement, “Jesus or no Jesus, if my daughter started working in a strip club, I’d beat her ass.” We find ourselves wondering what he would do if his daughter started batting for Team Lesbian. Baldwin also used the bully pulpit on ‘Big Brother UK’ to preach about evolution. Watch here while Richard Dawkins hands Baldwin a steaming pile of shutthehellup.





Kirk Cameron has a novel way to eat…or is this food snorting? We’re not sure. We just think it’s kinda weird. “Put your nose into the Bible everyday. It is your spiritual food. And then share it.” Shared food snorts. Ew. We wonder what other snorts he shares with his friends. It IS Hollywood, after all.
