She was taught evolution in her high school and she sees no problem with it today. In fact, she’s a science geek. Move over Science Cheerleaders and make way for the … no, wait, I don’t think I want to go there …

Is it American to ask Beauty queens when you want to know about science?
As hot as Ms Campanella is, one just dies a little on the inside that this is even a frigging question! Should the germ “theory” of disease be taught in schools? The “theory” of relativity? Atomic “theory” and the kinetic “theory” of gases?
