    changed much since 2005. The chart still can fit. It's more like 46% are creationists, 40% are "god uses evolution, the days were billions of years long, yadda yadda yadda" and 14% actually believe in evolution.

    Actual acceptence of what evolution actually is remains oddly low. I only think it's our sheer size (and the fact that so many scientists from overseas come here) that keeps us on top scientifically, otherwise, we'd really be backwards.

    just a little bit bored.

    •  Based on this chart from 2005 data... (0+ / 0-)

      The number that fully believe in human creationism is actually less than 40% and there are slightly more people who believe in evolution. Of course, I'm just looking at lines on a graph and didn't see a link to the raw data.

      The chart really only proves that Europeans believe in evolution more than Americans. Canada is not included. Mexico is not included. Latin and South America are not included. Other than Turkey and Japan, only the US and European countries were included in the poll. And based on the results from Turkey, I'm guessing that the Islamic world would fall behind the United States.

      If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
