    Default Darwin would be ashamed

    Poll: Just 39% believe in evolution - First Read - msnbc.com

    From NBC's Mark Murray
    Today it's not only Abraham Lincoln's birthday; it's also Charles Darwin's.

    And a brand-new Gallup poll tied to Darwin's birthday finds that just 39% of Americans believe in evolution.

    As expected, Gallup notes, education plays a big role here: 74% of those with post-graduate degrees believe in evolution. That's compared with only 21% of high school grads (or those with less education) who believe in the theory.

    Ditto religion: 55% who don't attend church believe in evolution, versus 24% of weekly churchgoers who believe in it.
    I don't believe in Gravity. Nor Germ Theory. Nor the Theory of the Atom.

    Scary... religions just shouldn't have such a power over education... We have religion education here too, but it isn't treated as an absolute truth that excludes all other explanations.

    Does that prove that objects pull each other according to the mass? It just proves that the wrench goes down. There could be plenty of other explanations for that (if we forget everything we have learned).

    I, honestly, don't see why people don't believe in it- it's stunning, and I find it common and practical sense for evolution to have and be taking place! I wonder what people think if they don't believe in evolution? So much of science is based around the theory of evolution, and there are facts regarding the theory. Is it those believing in Adam and Eve as the first humans that don't believe in evolution?
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Just more proof why I don't trust most polls.
