Americans ignorant about evolution

Well done, America!

Newsweek did a poll on March 28/29 (1004 respondents, 18+) and found that a third of college graduates accepted the Biblical creation story as, well, fact. Amazing. Roughly half of the people polled answered "No" to this question:

"Is evolution well-supported by evidence and widely accepted within the scientific community?"

Well done, America.

And 91% of those surveyed said they believe in God.

In the under-30's group, 62% said they knew an atheist. Interestingly, the poll also revealed that just 3% of the nation were actually atheist.

The MSNBC story is here.

nothing more to see. please move along.
