Thank goodness the Miss America pageant still offers scholarships to their winners, because it looks like a lot of the women participating could use them. When asked whether evolution should be taught in schools, most replied no, or that it should be only if Creationism (or “creationatism,” according to Miss Hawaii) is taught to.
Then there’s Miss Indiana. “I don’t know. I think we should leave that up to the government. I’m not sure. I think a lot of people would have an issue if evolution was taught in school. I think we should just leave that out of the equation.”
In case you were wondering, one of the few contestants who believed in evolution won the crown.
