No Myth Left Behind: 46% Fail First Test Question on Evolution - Shadowproof

Gallup released its annual results on the question of American beliefs regarding evolution/creationism. Once again, the creationists manage to sustain a set of beliefs that can only persist after a determined effort to withhold facts and sources and the imagination to keep them from their own children.It seems that 46% of Americans still accept the creationist view of human origins, a share that hasn’t changed much in the last 30 years. Another 32 percent believe some god may have had a hand in an evolutionary process, while a mere 15 percent think God had nothing to do with how the rest of...
