That is assuming that they would be able to understand the question. [Image: smileys-whistling-823718.gif]
Yah, you would definetly need to add a column for "I don't understand the question" here in the states.

RE: Disturbing Statistic
That's the funny thing about beliefs. What's true is true. It doesn't matter the number of people who "believe" in it if it's scientifically provable.

They'd probably just skip the question entirely.

Because all the evidence in favour of evolution is a sham, right?

"We are human beings god dammit! Not Apes!"

Tongue Yes we are Human Beings... Which evolved from common ancestors of Apes, as well as other life forms on the planet.

That sounds about right. The USA is a very religious country.

Of that 45% that believes in evolution, I bet at least half think that evolution was guided by god.
Theistic evolution

RE: Disturbing Statistic
The data is troubling in Canada too. Only about 59% nation-wide accept evolution according to a 2008 poll. In Ontario, it is particularly bad - 51%. I blame the consistently PC-voting rural population. Tongue Western Europe is way ahead of us.

Compared to Iceland, it is shameful. But luckily, compared to America (our only neighbour) we look like geniuses.

If something can be destroyed by the truth, it might be worth destroying.
