Not sure if this is the right Board for this, so please move if necessary. Thank you.
I find this quite unbelievable and would enjoy opinions.
Four in 10 Americans believe God created the Earth and anatomically modern humans, less than 10,000 years ago, according to a new Gallup
With all of our technological advancements that permit us to research a little about this planet's history and our evolution, I cannot conceive that
40% are still living in medieval times.
Don't get me wrong, I don't like that the title mentions Americans and I wish that this thread doesn't turn into an "Americans are ignorant" bashing
thread. I would be willing to bet that this percentage might even be higher if it was a global poll.
I just don't get it.
If you read the article linked below, you will find other gems as well, such as:
- 80% believe in miracles (okay...I'm one of those...)...
- 75% believe in the virgin
birth of Jesus...
- one out of four has no clue that the Earth revolves around the Sun and not the other way around...
Like, Hello? This isn't North Korea or Iran where information is not available. We have the internet, we have education for those who need
it...so...how can this be?
My "Deny Ignorance" meter blew a fuse while reading this article. Really, how can this be, in 2014?
