Lots of People Believe Dumb Things

sigh.jpgAccording to a new poll by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press, 41% of Americans expect Jesus to come back by 2050. Should we celebrate that it is only 41%? Maybe we should be asking ourselves how many of the politicians who run this country for their corporate masters share this belief.

Not surprisingly, the number jumps to 58% among White evangelicals and is higher in the South than in other regions.

Oh, and 65% of those surveyed expect religion to be as important in 40 years as it is now.
