What next -- teach that the earth is flat or that since the theory of gravity is still only a theory that it might not be true either? God help America out of their idiocy.
Teaching of Creationism Is Endorsed in New Survey - New York Times: "Teaching of Creationism Is Endorsed in New Survey
By LAURIE GOODSTEIN
In a finding that is likely to intensify the debate over what to teach students about the origins of life, a poll released yesterday found that nearly two-thirds of Americans say that creationism should be taught alongside evolution in public schools.
The poll found that 42 percent of respondents held strict creationist views, agreeing that 'living things have existed in their present form since the beginning of time.'
In contrast, 48 percent said they believed that humans had evolved over time. But of those, 18 percent said that evolution was 'guided by a supreme being,' and 26 percent said that evolution occurred through natural selection. In all, 64 percent said they were open to the idea of teaching creationism in addition to evolution, while 38 percent favored replacing evolution with creationism."
