Is this idea contagious or something?

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.
