    The loud ones are the most annoying ones that's for sure. I have a problem with religious folks who want to put their religion in politics but most Christians I know... good and smart people. People whose skin is probably crawling more than yours because it makes them look bad.

    There is a brand of American Christianist which really does make the more humble Christians look bad. It really is not much different than the Muslims who are peaceful being disgraced by the bomb throwers. It's only a matter of degrees. However, the silence of the sane in both religions is deafening.

    I would like to clarify that I refer to the fundamentalist Christians.

    Okay - who here rejects evolution?

    Show of hands please.


    "Republicans" are growing skeptical???? Really?

    Like there's growing evidence against evolution?
    I'll repost from an identical thread in the science sub-forum.

    I think the decrease is due in large part to the toxic cultural environment we have right now. Our 'culture wars' and the stark ideological divide have become so sharp that people who might have passed this issue over or tacitly accepted the science without giving it much thought are now embracing it because the 'other side' takes the opposite position. We have an innate desire to conform to our peer group, and for people that take politics at a deeply emotional level I think the urge to conform is pretty powerful even if it isn't a fully conscience thought.

    Well the sane ones don't buy TV channels which equate to 24/7 infomercials begging for cash by scaring you about hell or declaring they can heal you with their touch... if you just give $X. Those folks should be in jail for fraud IMO.

    Unfortunately these ones that should be in jail are the ones that also like to dabble in politics.

    1/3 seems about right. Start with evangelical Xtians and you're at about 20% of the population. Throw in immigrant catholics and muslims and easy to get to 33%.

    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 agree. I would have thought the number was closer to 50%. So, 33% is actually not so bad.

    On the side of evolution here. There is not a bit of evidence but plenty of evidence that proves live on earth developed through evolution.

    Eh...I find that hard to believe. 1/3 of the people polled, maybe. And maybe that poll was done in Alabama.
    I wish it were so, a Gallup Poll from last year asked 1,024 people the following question:

    "Which of the following statements comes closest to your views on the origin and development of human beings? (1) Human beings have developed over millions of years from less advanced forms of life, but God guided this process. (2) Human beings have developed over millions of years from less advanced forms of life, but God had no part in this process. (3) God created human beings pretty much in their present form at one time within the last 10,000 years or so."

    32% said evolution but guided by god

    15% said evolution but no guidance from god

    46% believed that God created us in our present form within the last 10,000 years or so.
