Scary Americans

Have a read of this.

The data from several recent Gallup studies suggest that Americans’ religious behavior is highly correlated with beliefs about evolution. Those who attend church frequently are much less likely to believe in evolution than are those who seldom or never attend. That Republicans tend to be frequent churchgoers helps explain their doubts about evolution.

The data indicate some seeming confusion on the part of Americans on this issue. About a quarter of Americans say they believe both in evolution’s explanation that humans evolved over millions of years and in the creationist explanation that humans were created as is about 10,000 years ago.


Now thinking about how human beings came to exist on Earth, do you, personally, believe in evolution, or not?

Yes, believe

No, do

It’s close but education seems to be winning out over superstition by a small margin.

Apparently we in England are much less likely to suffer from fundamentalist opinions but I’m not so sure.  To me evolution offers the best explanation for the origin and development of life on this planet.  It disturbs me that schools in England are being pressurised into teaching creationist dogma in science classes rather than the most up to date scientific knowledge. See here or here for more information.

Personally I’d like to see religious education taught as mythology rather than as morality and as fact.  In fact I think the world would be considerably better off without religion of any kind.
