Bumper Stickers

Today I left my aquatic rehab class and while walking (limping?) to the car I noticed a car parked near mine whose rear-end was plastered with left-leaning bumper stickers, including an Obama '08 sticker.

One bumper sticker read "Evolution is just a theory. Kind of like gravity."

And then immediately below that, another sticker read "As long as people believe in absurdities, they will continue to commit atrocities" …a quote by French philosopher Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire.

Interesting that these stickers were paired together on the car… I wonder if this person realizes that Hitler believed in evolution. He carried evolution to its logical conclusion… He wanted to weed out what he deemed to be the weakest humans in order to breed a superior race and drive the evolution of humans forward. This was his motivation. 6,000,000 people slaughtered.

Voltaire was right.
