Darwin**'s Birthday Poll: Fewer Than 4 in 10 Believe in Evolution**
**foxnews.com/story/0,2933,491345,00.html **

A new poll released just in time for Charles Darwin’s 200th birthday found only 39 percent of Americans say they “believe in the theory of evolution” and just 24 percent of those who attend church weekly believe in the explanation for the origin of life.
The Gallup survey, released Wednesday, found a quarter of those polled do not believe in evolution, and 36 percent say they don’t have an opinion either way.
The poll of 1,018 American adults, found strong ties between education level and belief in the theory.
“Among those with high-school educations or less who have an opinion on Darwin’s theory, more say they do not believe in evolution than say they believe in it,” Gallup found. “For all other groups, and in particular those who have at least a college degree, belief is significantly higher than nonbelief.”…

Remember, don’t count the pope among the disbelievers.

Google marks 200 birthday of Darwin with its loco.


It is also the 200 birthday celebration of Lincoln.

I watched a show on PBS on Lincoln called “Looking for Lincoln” which at the end actually included Charles Darwin - go figure.

What, a poll on evolution on Darwin’s birthday? How disgusting! Cam’t people just celebrate his birthday?

And yes, I regard evolution as the most probable way God created His creatures. If the Universe evolved, why not animals? Something to think about for the Creationists.
