New Gallup poll on US acceptance of evolution

Here is a new Gallup poll on the acceptance of evolution in the US. Okay - so the numbers have more or less stayed the same for the last three decades (Only a small effect, but creationism seems to be at its lowest in 2010). I agree with those who say that this is no longer simply a misunderstanding of science issue - but rather this is a religious/ideological issue. There is, however, still a correlation with the level of education - with more educated having a higher level of acceptance for evolution.


And here is the table on education levels:


Will we find a similar trend in the Muslim world? Perhaps to a first order of degree. After that I think it will vary tremendously from country to country. We hope to have some answers at the high end of the education level by the end of summer 2011. So stay tuned.

In the mean time, read the full Gallup report here.
