The Problem with Yes/No Questions


In a Republican primary debate several months ago, the candidates were asked to raise their hands to answer the question: "Do you believe in evolution?"

That's simply not a question that can be answered with a raised or lowered hand.

What would be a good way to reword the question to get more meaningful answers out of the candidates? Here's mine.

"Do you believe that the theory of evolution explains either the origin of species or the origins of life?"
