After so very many decades and in the modern times the support of belief over science is amazing and this is without such an organized opposition system as other issues.

http://www.pewforum.org/2013/12/30/publ ... evolution/

According to a new Pew Research Center analysis, six-in-ten Americans (60%) say that “humans and other living things have evolved over time,” while a third (33%) reject the idea of evolution, saying that “humans and other living things have existed in their present form since the beginning of time.” The share of the general public that says that humans have evolved over time is about the same as it was in 2009, when Pew Research last asked the question.

You know, 33% Knuckleheads is better than I would venture for the USA. I would like to see country by country global research on it. :mrgreen:

I'm not aware of such controversy. Everything I believe is true. :razz: :razz:

No seriously, often times I fail to see how one necessarily contradicts the other.
