Nearing half of the US rejects evolution, global climatic change, the big bang... The list is endless, well it ends right now with a Trump run for the highest office of the land. Yes, I can see Camacho being Trumps running mate at this point.
"Nearly half of the US rejects evolution." Err, Wrong. Nearly half of us disagree with not the idea of evolution, but how evolution happened, the process, and other details. "Nearly half of the US rejects climate change." Err, wrong. Nearly half of us disagree about the main cause of climate change and who and what does the most damage to the environment. "Nearly half of the US rejects the big bang." Err wrong. Nearly half of us reject the mainstream idea of the big bang and how it happened. Or in other words context. Lastly, Donald Trump is much smarter than you TBR, if you were so smart you wouldn't be here debating on debate.Org. R-E-T-A-R-D
@Haroush - You are so easily offended, and so quick to name calling. Tell you what. I concede a bit on the two points. Only 42% of Americans believe in YEC http://www.gallup.com/poll/170822/believe-creationist-view-human-origins.aspx and 80% of Americans reject the big bang http://www.cnet.com/news/only-20-percent-of-americans-surveyed-believe-in-the-big-bang/ See, I can be wrong too.
@Vox_Veritas - Au contraire. During the 60's and 70's Americans embraced science a great deal. We have been on a general downward trend since. There is a good book with some long term stats I have somewhere, "Anti-Intellectualism in America" I think.
To be fair, I don't think that most people reject the Big Bang. In fact, that's one thing that most theists and atheists can agree on. The Big Bang theory was first put forth by a Catholic priest to support theism, you know. It fits in secular science as well. Yay, common ground, now stop fighting or I'll kick a puppy.
@PericIes - Look at the link! Only 20% of Americans accept the BBT. It is anti-intellectualism run amok. The fact that a Catholic is credited with first theorizing it is not in dispute. That people reject it based largely on religious grounds is also not in dispute.
