Remember when I posted about how distressed the Miss USA contestants were about having to answer this question: “Should evolution be taught in public school science classes?” I predicted much consternation, waffling, and equivocation.
Well, that all happened. BUT, amazingly enough, the winner of the contest, Alyssa Campanella, gave a strongly pro-evolution answer.
But first watch the diverse answers from the other contestants—there are more waffles here than at IHOP! It’s hilarious.
After lots of equivocators, Alyssa Campanella, who describes herself as a “huge science geek,” appears as a breath of fresh air at 1:55, followed by other pro-evolution ladies: Katie Hanson of Delaware, Allyn Rose of Maryland, Alida d’Angona of Massachusetts, Brittany Toll of New Mexico, and Lauren Carter from Vermont. I’m not sure why some sources, including P.Z., are reporting that only two contestants were pro-evolution.
Good going, ladies, for showing the courage of your convictions!
What’s your favorite waffle?
