Only saying. I think that it should be underlined.

I havent thought of that.... Maybe because where I live you are more likely to run into someone who believes that the earth is flat, than someone who denies evolution.
Evolution has kind of become common knowlege here. But then again the educational standards we have are pritty high and scientific institutions are held in very high regard.

Our chancelor has a phd in physics, I guess that might say something about it.

Last i heard there is over 300 million people in america, of diverse beliefs and backgrounds, yet here we have a "study" that called 1,983 people ,and then posited that info as "1/3 of america doesn't believe in evolution". really? who did you call? what was their religious beliefs? what was their demographics? location? what was the question? how was it worded? how was it presented? tone and demographic of the poller? etc etc

worthless as all polls are.

Nice misinformation attempt on their part....sadly most will take it at face value.

Oh I understand it quite well actually, and have always felt it was voodoo science. 1983 people polled can in no way accurately reflect the opinion of 300+ million people, too many contributing factors that can skew that information.

here is the closer statement made at the bottom of the poll itself.

"In addition to sampling error, one should bear in mind that question wording and practical difficulties in conducting surveys can introduce error or bias into the findings of opinion polls."

which is about the only thing they said I will buy at face value. Just my humble opinion, I read their song and dance about 95% accuracy blah blah blah.

'not believing in science' is what stops science from being discovered. So stats are kinda important.

more like a very very very very small group of people phoned who don't hang up on survey calls, have this view on evolution.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".
