Uggghhhh. Can't believe I'm going back there tomorrow. D:

I am 100% certain that I am wrong about something I am certain about right now. Because even if everything I stand for turns out to be completely true, I was still wrong about being wrong.

At least it means 40% which is less than half.
Still you have your work cut out for you.
I wish you the best of luck. Smile

Link to the same stat broken down into different demographics. Apparently 53% of women are creationists, as opposed to 37% of men, which is just depressing. As expected, education also plays a role, with 25% of college graduates being creationists(still to high) compared to 65% of high school drop outs.

I don't believe Jesus is the son of God until I see the long form birth certificate!

lets hope the ratio doesn't increase, but I'm fearful that it will. if school tuition vouchers become the norm, we will see scores of faith-based schools pop up around our nation, spreading their mysticism to our nations children, all funded with our tax dollars. i fear a future where SAT test questions like " How many days did Noah endure rain for?" are common.

My thinking is religion-based colleges....

I want to say this carefully, but I do want to say it.
I have several American friends, and there are many Americans That I both like and respect....but....I am very concerned about the direction the U.S. is headed. I am VERY thankful I am a Canadian. To my American friends here, please don't take offense. You are what gives me hope that the States won't flush itself down the toilet (and take other countries with less power with them!)

Just visiting.
