    How else can you explain why the prehistoric dogs buried dinosaur bones just to fool us unbelievers?

    What exactly is there to be skeptical of?
    I'd venture to guess that it's not growing skeptisism of the evidence but rather a growing of reactionary behavior. "My political opposition believes this so I will take the opposite position regardless of evidence."

    I just read this article. This shows how unbelievably stupid Americans are. Its frightening that acceptance of science is the same rate here as it is in Muslim countries.

    Yeah - 1/3 is very low to me, too.

    Eh...I find that hard to believe. 1/3 of the people polled, maybe. And maybe that poll was done in Alabama.
    Its probably the 30% that still believe GWB was a good President.

    Right - because the rest of the world undoubtedly believes in evolution. (sarcasm). It's just us retarded Americans who can't get our **** together who are dumb.

    For many people - in a large number of religions - it conflicts with religious doctrines or they're not taught any such thing in school (if they have a school at all to attend).

    You're acting like knowledge that we teach is some sort of generic info that everyone is aware of. Evolution is a relatively new school of thought in contrast to things like math. And couple that with religious conflicts - it's often not taught at all in school save for 'a theory'

    Because - mind you - it is still just a theory.
