In college I volunteered to help students write their papers at our campus writing center. One day, a freshman comes in for her appointment, carrying a pile of school texts, along with a bible.
“Uh oh,” I thought to myself, “I already know why she needs help with her paper.”
Throughout most of the session she mentioned nothing about her faith, until we got on the topic of human stupidity (which was only obliquely related to the paper, tho’ i don’t recall what).
“That’s why I don’t believe in evolution,” she said.
“How’s that?” I cautiously asked.
“Because humans have never gotten any smarter,” she said.
I couldn’t think of an counter argument.
