    One-third of Americans reject evolution, poll shows[W:571]

    One-third of Americans reject evolution, poll shows


    NEW YORK (Reuters) - One-third of Americans reject the idea of evolution and Republicans have grown more skeptical about it, according to a poll released on Monday.

    Okay - who here rejects evolution?

    Show of hands please.


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

    Like there's growing evidence against evolution?

    1/3?


    Eh...I find that hard to believe. 1/3 of the people polled, maybe. And maybe that poll was done in Alabama.

    Given the result of the Duck Dynasty fiasco, 1/3 would seem to be low. Perhaps the Godless loons need to step up the seemingly endless shrieking ridicule and name calling.

    Or perhaps the overarching contentment, peace and happiness in that big, diverse Liberal circus tent is just not obvious to anyone else.

    This here is, quite literally, word salad.

    1/3 seems awfully high, but never underestimate how stupid we as a society are.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    I am a little surprised by the results of this poll i thought it would be more.

    I did not pay much attention to the poll methods and protocols so maybe that explains it.

    Either way it is irrelevant since consensus does not make or equal truth.

    Evolution of species is proven scientific fact whether 99% reject it or 1% reject it.

    I'm still enthralled by the notion that "Republicans have grown more skeptical about it".

    What exactly is there to be skeptical of?

    It sounds awfully low to me. After all, half the population is below average in intelligence

    And if my experience is any guide, that # is also low
