    First, if anyone reading this has not heard about the answers given by contestants in the Miss USA pageant to the question "Should evolution be taught in schools?", watch a video of samples, or at least read a news report, such as this one.

    So now that we are all up on the story, we can move on to what I really started this thread for, namely this video, in which Miss USA contestants answer the question "Should math be taught in schools?"

    Please notice, by the way, that a banner in the video and the description accompanying it make reference to "the original Miss USA evolution video" and provide links to it, and that the "contestants" do not look anything like contestants in beauty pageants. These should be clues to the intent of the video (which eluded most of the people posting comments). :rolleyes:

    The passage below, concerning the responses of the actual Miss USA contestants to the question "Should evolution be taught in schools?", is taken (faulty punctuation and all) from an article in the Christian Post:

    Best line ever, especially since evolution is a scientific fact. Even people I know who are all about creationism state that evolution is just part of Gods plan.

    Well I won't say anything else otherwise this will turn into a religious thread.

    Nice post though.

    are you aware that the scientific community dosn't count evolution as fact yet
    you probubly arn't aware of that oryou wouldn't go spouting off that it is 'fact'
    it's a fact that living creatures evolve but specifically reguarding humanity it's only declared fact by people who are afraid to be open minded
