Yesterday was Charles Darwin's birthday, as well as Abraham Lincoln's. According to a new Gallup Poll http://www.gallup.com/poll/114544/Darwin-Birthday-Believe-Evolution.aspx
only 39% of Americans believe in Darwin's theory of evolution. That's 4 out of 10 people.
36% had no opinion either way. 25% don't believe in evolution. 74% of those with a post-graduate education believe in evolution, compared with 21% of high school grads.
Education really does matter. Thank goodness that science and technology are important to a US President again.
