Okay, I want to know how the hell this happened. Who is responsible for this? How can this happen?
Asked whether human life is a result of God’s creation or evolution over millions of years, a majority of Americans said both are probable explanations, a poll suggested on Friday.
Overall, more Americans expressed a strong belief in creationism, or the theory that God created humans in their present form at a single period in time within the last 10,000 years.
A full 66 percent said they believed in creationism, with 39 percent of those polled saying it was definitely true and 27 percent believing it was probably true.
But 53 percent said they believed in evolution, the scientific theory that humans developed over millions of years from less advanced forms of life. Eighteen percent said evolution was definitely true, while 35 percent said it was probably true.
The results were released in a USA Today/Gallup poll of 1,007 adults, taken between June 1-3. The margin of error was three percent.
Is this true? Do 39% of Americans feel absolutely certain that God created humans sometime in the last 10,000 years? Do 66% of Americans think creationism is either definitely or probably true?
How can this be? I’ve never knowingly met one of these people and they are supposed to constitute 2 out of every 3 Americans? Where are they hiding?
Where do these people live? How can these people get their pants on and make it to work in the morning?
Something needs to be done. I’m all for letting people pursue their own religious beliefs without any interference, but this is poison on the brain of our society. We can’t compete in the modern world if we are going to allow our children to be raised as idiots.
