Americans not confident Big Bang or evolution is real, poll shows


Okay, so I was scrolling down my list of interesting articles I have salvaged from my history, and this was open.

I thought DDo would want to read this:

http://www.cbsnews.com...

"Americans have little doubt about the scientific evidence that smoking can cause cancer. However, a bigger portion of Americans still question some of the basic concepts of modern science, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll.

In the survey, with a representative sample of 1,012 U.S. adults age 18 or older, respondents were asked to rate their confidence in several statements about science and medicine.

What the survey revealed was surprising. Overall, Americans show more skepticism than confidence in the scientific concept that a Big Bang created the universe 13.8 billion years ago.

There was also considerable doubt about the science behind global warming and the age of the Earth.

The most broadly accepted scientific statement was that smoking causes cancer, with a whopping 82 percent of respondents saying they were extremely or very confident that it did."

If you see the graph presented in the article, you would see that the age of the earth is the most highly doubted. But I was looking down and I saw that 15% of the test responders were in high doubt about the safety of vaccines and evolution!

WHOOSH!

The United States is what they mean, unless you're saying that the US is a medley of independent states.

That's a very, very small sample size when you're trying to canvas the entire country of 300+ million with such claims.
The wise have eyes in their heads, while the fool walks in the darkness; but I came to realizethat the same fate overtakes them both.
Then I said to myself,
"The fate of the fool will overtake me also.
What then do I gain by being wise?"
I said to myself, "This too is meaningless."
For the wise, like the fool, will not be long remembered;
the days have already come when both have been forgotten.
Like the fool, the wise too must die!
- Ecclesiastes 2:14-16

I know intelligent atheists who doubt the Big Bang happened. Theories are revised all the time. Why should this one be written in stone?
One perk to being a dad is you get to watch cartoons again without explaining yourself.
