45. And you're not supposed to believe I know what I'm talking about...
...Just because I say I do. Because if you did, that wouldn't be science anymore.

The problem is, our current government doesn't want you to know this stuff, neither does the media, and neither does our wealthy corporate aristocracy. If I know what I'm talking about, you'll have to figure it out for yourself. But don't worry, America is full of teachers and professors who are trying to win support for evolution, so help is not far away.
