Evolution Less Accepted in U.S. Than Other Western Countries, Study Finds

– The graph below speaks for itself. The United States, the most powerful nation in the world, a leader in science and technology for many many decades, the most forward thinking experiment in democracy in the world’s political history now stands on the brink of pissing it all away. We can and we will become a second rate nation at this rate. You cannot excel at science, technology and a vibrant democracy and think that religion should trump politics and science at the same time. It isn’t going to happen, folks. Read the chart – and then imagine the future.


The end of a great nation is here - can you see it?

This chart depicts the public acceptance of evolution theory in 34 countries in 2005. Adults were asked to respond to the statement: “Human beings, as we know them, developed from earlier species of animals.” The percentage of respondents who believed this to be true is marked in blue; those who believed it to be false, in red; and those who were not sure, in yellow.

A study of several such surveys taken since 1985 has found that the United States ranks next to last in acceptance of evolution theory among nations polled. Researchers point out that the number of Americans who are uncertain about the theory’s validity has increased over the past 20 years.
