A quite illuminating post from Mother Jones. Apparently, a good deal of the recent crazy talk from the far-right of the GOP (i.e., it’s leadership) is based in the teachings of an amateur historian from Texas (of course). He’s teaching them, among other things, that the Founding Fathers debated evolution vs. creationism, and ended up siding with creationism.
Funny, then, that Darwin wasn’t even born until 1809, and didn’t write the Origin of the Species until 1859. As MoJo notes, those Founding Fathers had to be pretty prescient to debate a theory in 1776 that wasn’t fully formed until they were all long dead.
I totally did not catch that before when I reblogged that video. That being said,
Well, someone got caught with their pants down pulling facts out of their ass, didn’t they?
Hey, since you’re for abortion and all I’m just gonna go back in time and tell your mom you’re all for it. Sound good?
But then my mom has an abortion and then I never exist, so I never had a chance to form an opinion about abortion, so you never would have gone back in time to tell my non-mother anything.
Also, this argument is hilarious. Thinking abortion should be legal and a viable choice for people who need it does NOT mean you prescribe abortion for every pregnant person. And why would my mom care about my political views?
This is just as relevant as going back in time and telling my mom that I support same sex marriage. That means she’d immediately dump my dad and get into a lesbian relationship, right? Except for how she’s not attracted to women and you’re a dumbass.
I would like this post but I don’t want the insanely idiotic OP to think I approve of her stupid message, so I’ll just reblog it instead.
Edit: Oh god it’s a he, even worse.
