I am willing to wager a single-malt bottle of scotch that it will be discovered that a "certain sub-group of homos" (IDists and creationists) might be missing a vital link that allows them to think critically, and makes them more susceptible to religion and non-critical thinking.
Do I get moved to the Bathroom Wall for suggesting that the new group will be named Homo Stupidus?
