I’d like everybody who reads this to join this Facebook group, please :)
It’s a counter movement to some creationists or whatever who started a group called “we [sic] can find 1,000,000 people who don’t believe in Evolution befor [sic] June”.
That group started the 8th of Jan apparently/approximately and are as I write this nearly at 35,000 fans.
The pro-evolution group started the 14th of Jan (app./appr.) and are as I write just over 130,000 fans, gaining approx 10,000 fans per day at the moment.
Now I know that science is not decided by how many people say something is true (see “argumentum ad populum“), but politics is. So the more people publicly come out in support of evolution, the better. Lest the mass media not get the idea that this ignorant (or cynical) loud minority really represents a common point of view.
And yes, “believe” in evolution is technically not correct, we know that. But first, the name of the group was copy-mirrored from the other group and second, it’s just nice and short compared to more accurate alternatives. So don’t whine about that, just sign up, OK :)!?
