    I'm with powerrob on this.

    This seems more of a reaction than an actual belief.

    It's "Democrats/Independents/Youth/Minorities/anyone who isn't an old angry white man accepts evolution, therefore I reject it."

    It is embarrassing but read into the background. Apparently it was a political poll being that they were polling by party preference. So like I said in another post, when you approach topics politically you generate a lot of reactionary behavior as compared to regular day to day thinking which I'd bet would ganer different results.

    I don't think you guys appreciate how bad this truly is.

    To give you a comparison, this is as bad as saying that 33% of Americans believe that the Earth orbits the Sun.

    I am outraged by this.

    I'm surprised it's news to you.

    Religious indoctrination begins at birth for many people - this topic in school comes much, much later.

    If you were to bring up this topic with my mother and state anything that supported evolution she'd laugh her ass off and say things like "What - like all of your cells are alive and able to make decisions?"

    She was born into and raised by religious doctrine.

    Because that's better? I don't think that's better. Actually I think that's worse. **** this planet.

    What exactly is there to be skeptical of?
    Especially since DNA has pretty much cemented the notion of common ancestry during the past decade. It takes a high degree of denial to stick to the party line.

    Rule #1 in any situation.

    Don't panic.

    It's not as bad as you think. It's a controversial headline made to sell.

    These creepy Christians are the reason I am no longer a Republican. At least the dems are mostly sane.
