I’m sorry… this is just depressing. Some aspects of this Reuters poll are not surprising. Vast majorities of Americans believe in God and Jesus as either God or the Son of God. That’s all well and good. But for only 42% to believe in evolution is a bit numbing. Only 16% of Evangelicals accept evolution, which I guess shouldn’t come as a shock. But I wonder if that same 84% of them would be willing to live without the medicines, therapies, crops, and livestock that scientists, working with and from Darwin’s theory, have made available to them? Maybe the witches that 37% of them believe in can conjure something up for them the next time they are sick or hungry.
