This story was just sent to me by TWIS minion John Nicholson. I’ve seen it before, but it continues to bring me no end of grief.
The US is almost last in its acceptance of the Theory of Evolution compared to the other nations polled in 2005. It does beat Turkey, and by a fairly wide margin, but come on… this is simply ridiculous. Our nation is definitely tailing other modernized nations by a significant margin.
I have a hard time accepting this information, even though it comes from a reliable source. The kicker is that over the past 20 years the US has become less certain of the Theory of Evolution. It just goes to show that a good PR campaign is all you need to sway the masses.
Finding this all rather depressing and gloomy. I’m off to search for more uplifting news.Filed under Science & Politics |
