after the sleeping comes the waking up.

Is this idea contagious or something?

Posted by c. wagner on October 26, 2009

Poll data suck and the sample is small, but the trend shown in a recent poll printed in the Guardian is still disturbing. Apparently, the Brits have caught the creationist bug, too. 54% of respondents said that creationism should be part of the national science curriculum along with evolution. *sigh*

And then I find more polls from the BBC. I’ll just let the article summarize itself.

More than half of adults in a survey of 10 countries [Argentina, China, Egypt, Great Britain, India, Mexico, Russia, South Africa, Spain, and the USA] thought school science lessons should teach evolutionary theories alongside creationism.


Read the article from the Guardian.

    So are you saying you don’t think evolutionary theories should be taught alongside creationism?? 🙂
