    What exactly is there to be skeptical of?
    "evolution"of the growing Democratic demographics of the electorate?

    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.

    Re: One-third of Americans reject evolution, poll shows

    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.

    I totally agree. Trouble being that religions are very diverse, even within the same species. I was raised a Christian believing in Jesus as our salvation from eternal death. But the brand that I was born and raised in was in so many ways not mainstream. But amongst the few commonalities of many mainstream Christian groups (and certainly not all) was the literal or level of literal acceptance of the text. I was taught to accept the literal and spontaneous creation of mankind on the sixth day of creation week, and I can assure you that there was NO/NADA/ZERO room for any evolutionary process whatsoever. I have quite evolved past that since of course and today accept ALL religions as I do any other human creations and developments and categorize them accordingly. But for the most fundamental, the true believer in the literal translation of the Bible, evolution is taboo!

    Re: One-third of Americans reject evolution, poll shows

    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.

    You're probably right about why the close relationship bothers people, though. Hell, we share DNA with yeast.
    I should have been more clear. I know they are classified in the genus Pan. However, due to dna sequencing done over the last decade or so, we know that they should actually be classified in the same genus that we are in.
