60% of US adults... could be worse

60% of US adults... could be worse
Fresh out from Pew Research: Public's Views on Human Evolution
http://www.pewforum.org/2013/12/30/publi...evolution/

Of course, there are always different ways to spin the data. Just how the questions are asked will influence the results.

The most encouraging thing I see in the graphs is the correlation of higher education with higher acceptance of evolution. Then again, that might be why conservatives seem hell-bent to cut funding for public education and include creationism as a valid alternative in the schools.

Quote:White evangelical Protestants are particularly likely to believe that humans have existed in their present form since the beginning of time.

There is a reason for that.

Baby steps forward. But it is good news indeed, hopefully that percentage will rise over the years.
When I was young, there was a god with infinite power protecting me. Is there anyone else who felt that way? And was sure about it? but the first time I fell in love, I was thrown down - or maybe I broke free - and I bade farewell to God and became human. Now I don't have God's protection, and I walk on the ground without wings, but I don't regret this hardship. I want to live as a person. -Arina Tanemura
