Gallup Poll: 46% of Americans Are Creationists

divineirony:

teachthemhowtothink:

This is embarrassing, depressing and terrifying.  The overall 46% is horrible, but it’s the 25% of POSTGRADUATES and 46% of college grads that really astonishes me.  Seriously?  How can we be letting people graduate from college and not know basic science??  You know what, strike that.  How can over 50% of kids just out of high school not know basic science in this country?  Grrrrr….  ~JJ

According to a Gallup poll released today, 46% of Americans believe in Creationism, 32% of Americans believe in god-guided evolution, and 15% of Americans are actually right:

We are a country full of deluded people…

Not surprisingly, the less education you have, the more likely you are to believe in nonsense:

Americans with postgraduate education are most likely of all the educational groups to say humans evolved without God’s guidance, and least likely to say God created humans in their present form within the last 10,000 years. The creationist viewpoint “wins” among Americans with less than a postgraduate education.

I love that “wins” is in quotation marks.

Also, to no one’s surprise, Republicans and frequent church-goers were more likely to think God poofed us into existence.

Gallup’s conclusion:

Despite the many changes that have taken place in American society and culture over the past 30 years, including new discoveries in biological and social science, there has been virtually no sustained change in Americans’ views of the origin of the human species since 1982

All in all, there is no evidence in this trend of a substantial movement toward a secular viewpoint on human origins.

… almost half of Americans today hold a belief, at least as measured by this question wording, that is at odds with the preponderance of the scientific literature.

Alright, readers from other countries. Mock us. We deserve it.

The road sign that lists Lost Spring, Wyoming’s population as one, which is based on the 2000 census, is a source of contention for the town’s few residents. Lost Springs Mayor Leda Price says she’s lived there for 37 years and there has always been more than one person. In fact, before the 2010 census, a woman moved in with one of the town’s three residents, increasing the population by 33 percent. Today, Lost Springs is home to four people and two businesses: the general store, which is owned by Mayor Price, and a post office.12 U.S. places where your visit could double the population

Casualties from the war on terror, 9/11, and the invasion of Iraq

Anyone singing “Proud to be an American” today should be hung.



soo, take a look at the statistics gathered here.. I’m not quite sure what the source is for this but really take a look at this- is war and invasion to kill truly necessary? Not in my opinion. I think diplomatic measures could have been more easily taken oppose to any of the lives taken from the statistics shown above. Be kind. Be humane. Please try not to generalize entire populations. I believe that peace can be achieved through understanding. Ignorance and hate push people the furthest away from understanding. I think the compassion of individuals can help bridge the gap between the ignorant to better understand. It can and may help, but first the people need to want to learn before one may become more educated. I really think people need to ask more questions then truly go about to seek the answers.. and until they obtain answers which agree with their own sense of reason I think there should be a higher sense of civil unrest on Earth.. we all are Earthlings here, let’s push aside our nationalistic mind-set for a minute, then together let’s observe the bigger picture. 

Some lives are worth more than others. -_-

Just Carl: "9/11 changed the world"

carlconnor:

No it didn’t.

9/11 changed America.

It gave an excuse to the politicians who already wanted war to go ahead with that war.

Then a thirst for blood and revenge from a minority of American’s changed the world.

Also…

That thirst then emptied their bank account and left them in the red. More red…
