Breaking news! Politics is controlled by “lizard-people” – or so 12.5 million people believe. When put in percentage, though, doesn’t sound as large, which is 4%. Still, a measurable amount of people do believe our government is being led by scaly critters – and I don’t mean Ted Cruz. Well, maybe I do….
One set of results really shocked me… 37% (116 million people) believe that global warming is a hoax. Excuse me? We have a hole in the ozone, for starters, that’s been there quite a while now. We have been pumping toxic chemicals in our environment for decades. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, and the reaction to our pollution and toxic waste is an upset of the delicate balance of the earth’s overall environment thus bringing on an overall temperature warming. I don’t necessarily believe all the tragic storms are a direct result – they may be, they may not – I’m just believe we have the ability to make that determination just yet. But I do believe we are in a warming trend, but it will take thousands of years for major changes to occur to the planet. Geologic time is much much longer than human time (thinking in the average length of life of a person – even society).
Enough talking. Just take a look at the results. Then the next set of statistics is even better!

I am a bit surprised that only 29% of the people polled believe that aliens exist. Personally, I don’t believe they’ve been here on Earth. But I have a hard time believing that we are the only intelligent life and society in the universe – especially when the universe is infinite. If life happened here, goes to say it could happen elsewhere.
The next graphic. Now, let’s break down the believers into those who voted for Obama, and those who voted for Romney. Some numbers are what I expected. A few others rather surprised me.
Now, I have to wonder…. Out of those who believe in the “Obama is the Anti-Christ” conspiracy… why would they have voted for him?
