On 2nd thought, here is something positive. I took my brother to the dentist and while I was in the waiting room there was a young girl with her mother and grandmother. She was reading a book. The title had something to do with “your inner fish”. She said she was 16, tho I would have guessed 14. Not that I didn’t believe her. She explained that the book had to do with the author finding an intermediary fossil between the (I think flathead fish that had fins) and the apparent descendent that had legs.
So a 16 year old, who understands and does not deny evolution. Her mother and grandmother were speaking Spanish, so if I had to guess I would expect them to be Catholic. Yet the girl understood evolution. She also believes in global warming, a spherical earth, the problem of anti-vaxxers, etc. All of the obvious points of reality for people who are fact based. She is tending toward being a doctor.
Anyway it was a very positive thing for me to just happen to speak to a random person who was reality based, in our world of so many people who are not. And it was particularly hopeful in that she was so young.
