Science denial & religion

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Hey look, Baptists are less than zero than Muslims! Smile

I'd like to see an updated version of this - a lot has changed in just the pas two years, let alone eight.

Friends?
I want to be a Friend, whatever that is.

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

Muslim position on both issues is interesting.
Did ISIS think all those famous relics were stuffing up the environment perhaps?

Those Witnesses always have to be different huh. They're the only significant outlier of that group.

I'm glad to see Friends is quakers and not some freak religion of fans of Friends, because I have no respect for that show but it would of given me a harsh cognitive dissonance if that was the case.

I wonder where Scientologists would rank with their skewed sci-fi view reality. Do they really care about environmental policy since this is just a planet we're only currently trapped in.

It looks like this data is a cross-section of America, not the world.

The Muslim circle is too miniscule to represent a worldwide population, and it's data from Pew, which focuses on the US.

Muslims in America tend to be much more liberal than Muslims overall. I think it's because they're in a place where they can say, "hey, I know what it's like to be a minority religion, cutting the heads of minority religions is BAD!"

It also doesn't distinguish Muslims like it does for Jews, and I think there are also those who are in a similar culturally Muslim category that boost it upwards a bit.
