Is it true 'half of Americans don't believe in evolution'?
Advertisements [?]
I can't believe that National Geographic actually thinks this. Then again, the source of the article is from a conservative Christian site. I was doing a search for the big bank theory and disproving it. I had seen an article in a Science mag about 6 months ago about a group of scientists that were proving that there was no singular point in time and came across this:

Obviously, National Geographic (hereafter simply NG) thinks that a significant percentage of their readers are slipping in their faith in evolution and need a remedial course in the some of the abundant, various, ever increasing, solidly interconnected, and easily available evidence (p. 8). NG admits that nearly half of Americans dont believe in evolution, due in part to Scriptural literalism and the proselytizing work of young-earth creationist and intelligent design proponents (p. 6). They also blame it on honest confusion and ignorance; but given that the popular science magazines, the mass media and the educational establishment are controlled by evolutionists, evolutionists have no one to blame but themselves for this alleged confusion and ignorance.
