Not shocked and the problem is that SOME people think that if they believe in evolution then they can believe in god and thats simply not true.
People make it a black white issue and of course its not
If people want to debate of mans origins feel free but nobody educated flat out denies evolution in general, it exist and that fact wont change. If you want to debate how man evolved/came into existence have at it but regardless evolution itself has already been proven.
It makes perfect sense, really.
Those who have not evolved just cannot imagine the process.

IMHO, Agent J hits the nail on the head in this....The article is setting up a false dichotomy here...Although it is my own perception, and experience that new generations entering society seem to be dense when it comes to expanded thinking on subjects, recent generations are shallow, and self absorbed in their thinking which I think leads to this conclusion of PEW in the poll.
adpst also made a salient point early on, for those who believe in God. Which is to say that as a believer, God created everything, and also created evolution, as a part and whole of free will.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville
Alot of people hold a belief that people are here as a result of creationism or evolution. Some people are going to stick with creationism. But one doesn't really negate the other. Science and religion dont negate one another. Science is nothing more than understanding the process that took place. It doesn't necessarily mean that a higher power didn't put that process in place. If you believe in a God you don't know Gods processes or exactly how he made man, only that he did. Evolution may be God's process of creation.
