Thanks CloudsTasteMetallic. It is honestly the way I see the world.
Four in 10 Americans believe God created the Earth and anatomically modern humans, less than 10,000 years ago, according to a new Gallup poll.

You make it sound like there's a huge difference between these two equally ignorant beliefs. Regardless, the article is accurate. What's your point here?

Except the poll makes absolutely no mention of "god created earth".
This is evidenced in your link, which is also the exact same point I previously made with the same link.
Where are you reading anything about the poll specifically asking about god creating the earth?
The title is false and misleading.
As part of the Values and Beliefs Survey, Gallup called a random sample of 1,028 landline and cellphone users and asked them which of three descriptions most closely matched their beliefs: that humans have developed over millions of years from less advanced forms of life, but God guided this process; that humans have developed over millions of years from less advanced forms of life, but God had no part in this process; or that God created human beings pretty much in their present form sometime in the last 10,000 years or so.

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. *snip*
This thread should be removed.

I pity North America if religion ever gets it's power back...just look at the Middle East and what having religion in charge does over there.
Abolish religion and let us get out of the medieval ages.
