NEWSWEEK POLL

13. Do you think the scientific theory of evolution is well-supported by evidence and widely accepted within the scientific community?

Only 48% of respondents believe it is well supported vs. 39% who say no and 13% unsure.


If that's not TERRIFYING enough, only 49% of the country personally knows an atheist.

a very large percentage of the population sees these kinds of questions as "us vs them" type of questions.  they answer to support answers they perceive to be on their "side".

this is how democracy works.  selfish decisions tend to supercede rational ones.

I would answer none of the above since the question is not specific enough.

What is with these polls anyway? 13% of atheists agree that 'God created man in his present form 10000 years ago'. Why 13% of atheists?

Yeah, that is pretty screwed up. "This guy I don't believe in created everything."

I don't get why ~30% of people think that morality and atheism are mutually exclusive, either. Sure, I can believe some people would think that... but that % is much higher than I would have guessed.
