Only 15 Percent of the US ‘Believe’ in Evolution: According to a recent Gallup poll, the proportion of the US public that believes God had a hand to play with the ‘creation’ of humans has remained unchanged for 30 years. In 1982, 44 percent of the US public polled said that they believed God created humans in our current form; today, that proportion has risen slightly to 46 percent. Only 15 percent said that they believed that humans evolved as science intended, and that God had no part to play in the process. Although this number is small, it was smaller in 1982 — back then only 9 percent of the US public held this view. The poll was taken by “1,012 adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia,” says Gallup.
46% of the country chooses on their own accord to be complete ignorant idiots. People who wonder “are the religious really that bad in America”, the answer is it is probably worse than you imagine. No one needs to believe in evolution, it is true regardless or who does or does not believe it. When we have such a large portion of the population actively going against science in their “beliefs” it shows we have a problem. People don’t trust science, but they’ll still use it. Hypocrites on so many levels.
