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

    1/3 sounds about right to me. 30% is a number that pops up with some frequency in polling when it comes to political and culture issues, such as the 28-32% who stuck with Bush Jr. til the very end, or 25% against abortion (illegal in most cases), or the 27% that believe that global warming is a hoax, or the 27% that view the Republican party "very favorably."

    Democrats can be just as crazy, but usually the crazy Christians who believe the earth is 6000 years old, etc. are Republicans.

    I thought it was 4000 years old.

    4004 BC in October on a Tuesday, I believe, without googling it. You can double check if you'd like.

    Yep, you're right.

    "Young Earth creationism (YEC) is the religious belief[1] that the Universe, Earth and all life on Earth were created by direct acts of the Abrahamic God during a relatively short period, sometime between 5,700 and 10,000 years ago.[2] Its primary adherents are those Christians and Jews[3] who, using a literal interpretation of the Genesis creation narrative as a basis, believe that God created the Earth in six 24-hour days.[4][5]"
    Young Earth creationism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    There are Jews who believe that too? Damn, that's depressing.

    No baby - no. It's NOT a Republican thing. The belief pre-dates the concept of reps and dems by centuries. You need to pay a BIT more attention to things. Go to a baptist church for starters.

    Regardless, the divide is very much a Republican/Democrat thing now. There's isn't a poll out there that'll say otherwise.

    Anecdotally, in my entire history of online debates I've never met a liberal/democrat who believed in creationism.

    True, but the literal creationists tend to be far more represented in the Republicans. Remember Huntsman's statement in the primary? He alluded that his party would have to call him CRAZY for accepting evolution.

    It baffles me that people can "reject" evolution when it happens, observably, every single day with antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

    Life adapts.
