Quote# 1678

What the poll [<a href="http://www.angus-reid.com/polls/index.cfm/fuseaction/viewItem/itemID/8015" target="_blank">this one</a>] indicates is that Americans are still better consumers than the rest of the world, and significantly better at weeding out defective products (like the theory of evolution) than the rest of the world is. The rest of the world obviously has some catching up to do in that area.

\"It's not us that are unedduhcated, it's everyone else! I swear!\"

Deflate your ego -- the fact of the matter is that Americans are morons on average.

And that's because fundies are dragging us down.

The ToE is a product? Man, I wanna see the commercial for that.

\"The Theory of Evolution... and YOU!\"
*footage of Darwin in a suit with a snappy laser pointer*
Darwin: With a single compact theory, you can replace all these complicated, messy gods and miracles, leaving space in your brain for all sorts of other things like critical thinking!

Either just not familiar with the theory behind of Capitalism, or just like to make similes in a attempted poetic fashion. Nothing fundie.

EDIT: ... except as a free-marketer, given he is not sarcastic or something.

"Better consumers" =/= more intelligent. In fact, the two are probably in inverse proportion to each other. "Better consumers" simply means you'll buy whatever the TV commands you to buy.

Then why are American cars famously shit?

I'm really curious about what a "better consumer" is?

Ok... I've already left a comment claiming this wasn't fundie, but I couldn't have checked the link, because now I see he was talking about ToE AS a defective product, not comparing capitalim to Darwinism. Sorry about that >_>

Eatting three times what Europeans do is not a sign of "better consumers"

Matter of fact: Sloth, averance, greed and pride

At least 4 of the 7 deadly sins are American Fundie daily activities

So... American culture is evolving faster than European culture because it's more competitive and therefore puts a higher selection pressure on products and ideas?

Yes, and the more you weed out those 'defective' bits of science you don't like, the better consumers you are likely to become. Meanwhile, the rest of the world will march on without you, producing all those clever new things you love to consume but will no longer know how to make.

It's called a trade deficit.
