Default 1/3 of Texans polled think The Flintstones is a documentary

30% of Texans think humans & dinosaurs lived together, half think evolution is false.

From the article:

Quote:
About the same numbers of Democrats and Republicans — 43 percent — disagree with the idea that dinosaurs and humans lived on the planet at the same time. Republicans were slightly more likely to agree with the idea (31 percent to 27 percent). Perry had more voters in each group on the GOP side, but Kay Bailey Hutchison had the largest share of voters who believe in that coexistence.

Isn't that the program that Barney Frank plays a lead role in?

You mean we did not live with the dinosaurs and that Flintstones were not a documentary? I'm crushed.

Ironically, all 30% were educated in public schools.
