With today being the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin, Gallup did a poll in which they asked people if they believe in the theory of evolution.
A more valid question would ask if they understood the concept, but the study types at Gallup went with belief.
Anyway, in the results 39% of the respondents said they “believed”, 25% did not, and 36% had no opinion.
While I would have expected more than 25% to say no, I think the more than one-third of the pool that made no choice is more significant.
That response probably means most of them had no clue what the interviewer was talking about.
We really need to do a better job of science education in this country.
