Texans, Evolution, and the Flintstones

I don't know why any of us should be surprised by this anymore, but a University of Texas survey finds that 60 percent of the Texans polled believed that humans and dinosaurs occupied our planet at the same time, or weren't sure that this wasn't the case. The UT scientist who devised the survey noted that:
the results recall a line from comedian Lewis Black. "He did a standup routine a few years back in which he said that a significant proportion of the American people think that the 'The Flintstones' is a documentary.  Turns out he was right. Thirty percent of Texans agree that humans and dinosaurs lived on the earth at the same time."
Funny line.  Wish I could laugh.
