Two polls released on the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin show that despite public education’s best efforts, the majority of Americans still reject Darwin’s theory of evolution.
Now, his original theory and that preached in classrooms today is markedly different, but it’s doubtful the poll respondents differentiated between the two.
Gallup’s poll showed that only 39 percent of American’s buy Darwin’s theory, 25 percent flat-out reject it and 36 percent don’t have an opinion (what?!)
Pew, though, has the rejection of Darwin at 63 percent (though Pew includes those who believe God was behind evolution as those who reject natural selection).
