But evolution is not a fact, it is tons of theories about facts. If it was a fact, I would believe it, but since I don’t believe it, it is not a fact. I believe ALL facts, actually correction, I KNOW all facts are facts. You cannot believe something you know, belief involves taking a leap, with facts there is no leap to take, since you would know. But, I do not KNOW of evolution being a fact, and I disagree with it being a fact, therefore it is not a fact. Does this make me uneducated about the information about evolution? No, I have read a lot about it and debated about it before, not just on this website. I know about the issue, I don’t agree it is a fact.This reminds me of the CEO of a company I used to work for, who was heard to say in a senior staff meeting, on one memorable occasion: "I don't claim to know everything, but if somebody tells me I am wrong, I have a problem with that."
Anyway, I thought the quote really spoke to the underlying mindset of the wingnut hoi polloi. Objective standards for factuality need not apply.
