Louisiana Lawmaker Asks: E-Coli Evolves Into Humans

Louisiana has been under fire lately because some schools are pretty adamant about teaching evolution didn't happen.

This leads to some pretty funny moments, when a few people who should know better are willfully ignorant.
Louisiana State Sen. Mike Walsworth
has some interesting questions about

The state's lawmakers were discussing legislation that would allow the teaching of creationism in public schools.

A video taken in April that is just now going viral shows just how scary lawmakers can be. People this dumb are making laws?

In the clip, Louisiana State Senator Mike Walsworth  definitely a creationist, asking questions of Darlene Reaves, a fourth grade teacher who was discussing the teaching of evolution in the classroom..

Walsworth asked if there were any scientific experiements that demonstrate the process of evolution.

So far, so good. Reaves said yes. Scientists have taken samples of E.coli, let them reproduce over and over again. The scientists took samples of the E.coli  bacteria occasionally during the process and froze them.

After some years, the scientists compared samples of E.coli from the beginning of the experiment with those toward the end and determined they had changed over the generations. In other words, they evolved.

With that explanation in hand, our Senator Waldsworth asks. "They evolved into a person?"

No, Sen. Waldsworth, the evolved into scary dinosaurs that are going to eat you!!! What do you think?!?!?!?

The look on Reaves' face after Waldsworth's question is priceless.
