Poll reveals Texans believe dinosaurs, humans coexisted

Nearly a third of registered voters in Texas believe humans and dinosaurs lived at the same time, according to a statewide survey conducted by UT and The Texas Tribune.

Eight hundred registered voters across the state were polled between Feb. 1-7. The survey included questions about religious and political persuasions and beliefs in evolution.

A map of the poll results would be really telling. Austin, other metros, would be shown to be in the 20th century. But, the hinterlands? 

In the aftermath of the release of the poll, trumandogz wrote at freerepublic,

Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”…

God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day. Genesis 1:26,31

Well, should I believe God’s Word or some uniformitarians who find a few fossils and assume they are from some strata millions of years ago?

Uniformitarian?! (trumandogz refers here to a fault line between young earth creationists and proto-geologists of the mid-18th century.) Texas! Be as ignorant as you wish as far as I’m concerned; The University of Texas excepted.

The current chair of the Texas Education Agency is Gail Lowe, a young earth creationist. She was appointed by Gov. Perry. Texas Tribune: Meet the Flintstones
