Polling the creationism/evolution controversy
NCSE is pleased to announce a new section of its website that provides information on polls and surveys relevant to the creationism/evolution controversy. You've seen the alarming statistics:
- Evolution is accepted by 97% of scientists in the United States, but by only 61% of the public.
- Among thirty-two countries surveyed, the United States was next-to-last for its public acceptance of evolution.
- One out of eight high school biology teachers in the United States presents creationism as scientifically credible.
