But For The Ignorant And Religious

13 02 2009

On the eve of the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth, a new Gallup Poll released a new poll about Evolution.  Here are a few of the more interesting graphs.

Yes, overall only 39% believe in evolition and 1% saw something shiny on the floor and forgot to answer the question altogether.

I know, shocking isn’t it.  Not the fact that people with less edumacation believe it only 21% of the time, but that people who have advanced degrees still don’t believe it 11% of the time.  Huh, I wonder why that might be?

Oh wait…nevermind.  I think that last one might have cleared it up.

The answer is easy. The 11% got their postgraduate degrees in Theology.

Chris,

Your response is a typical thinking of an man whose ancestor is an ape.

And you Dove are typical of those who think that the world is flat.

SuperJesus, thanks for these stats. I do have a couple friends who have postgraduate degrees and are hyper-religious, but for the most part, SMART PEOPLE BELIEVE IN EVOLUTION AND DO NOT BELIEVE IN DEITIES WATCHING US FROM THE SKY.

Your response is typical of the erroneous thinking that evolution suggests man evolved from apes.

My sensors detect comment snark levels near critical…I don’t think the thread sarcasm containment systems can take much more of this abuse capt’n.
