    Okay, I understand the whole creationism / evolution thing here. but starting a thread called 'stupid rednecks in kansas' isn't really a debate - there isn't two side to this, noone can really deny it. More a fact. Perhaps this thread should go in 'general' 😛😀

    I would be interested in the comments from some of the conservative fundament ...[text shortened]... proponents would like to rethink their views or to justify them in the light of the reported events.

    This isn't the Debates forum. Several months ago, the site instituted a rule that all religious topics must be posted in this forum, and that religious posts made elsewhere would be moderated.

    Yeah yeah, just pointing out that there is really no debate that people from kansas are all stupid rednecks, that's all.

    It appears that when one goes for his biology degree, one isn't required to study history. Had history been a subject of interest, the curious student would have been delighted to learn how Kansas isn't really a bunch of rednecks, after all.
    Instead, they are six talented progressive musicians who have produced eight gold albums, three platinum+ albums, and a million-selling single. Hardly the work of stupid rednecks (although one of the band members was reported to enjoy tractor pulls and wearing wife-beaters around the house in front of strangers).

    Two biology degrees actually, if you want to be pedantic. Now were they music degrees I'm sure i'd know all that, but then again...

    Anyhoo, everyone's heard of musical retards, no? 😛

    Oh, and you're right incidentally, biology, chemistry, environmental science are taught in the first year, biology for the next three, then a PhD of original research. Started at the age of 17 and all finished by the age of 24, so right, not enough time for studying music too. Japanese on the other hand.....

    not coloring yourself as very bright to suggest such a thing.
