Americans want kids to be stupid

This is so fucking depressing:

In a finding that is likely to intensify the debate over what to teach students about the origins of life, a poll released yesterday found that nearly two-thirds of Americans say that creationism should be taught alongside evolution in public schools.
The poll found that 42 percent of respondents held strict creationist views, agreeing that “living things have existed in their present form since the beginning of time.”

Sigh. Who the hell are these respondents? I’m going to go cry into my ice coffee now.
