LA state senator shows his ignorance asking for 'proof' of evolution

"I don't think that word means what you think it means!" Louisiana, like a lot of red states, is trying to have creationism taught as science. In this exchange, a LA state senator demonstrates that he really, really doesn't know shit about science: Senator Asks for Proof of Evolution, Discovers He Doesn't Actually Understand What It Is

Got the link from Zack Kopplin's Facebook page. Zack is the young man leading the fight against Louisiana's creationist law.
