Evolution

 

                                  Evolution

 On August 10th, 2006, National Geographic News reported that researchers compared surveys of attitudes toward evolution in the U.S., Japan and 32 European countries. In the U.S., 14 percent of adults thought that evolution was "definitely true," while about a third firmly rejected the idea. The only country included in the study where adults were more likely than Americans to reject evolution was Turkey.

On May 28, 2007, the $27 million Creation Museum opened in Petersburg, Kentucky,  offering scenarios that fly directly in the face of scientific knowledge. Just nine months later, the half-million visitor mark was reached.

 

On February 11, 2009, the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth, a Gallup poll showed that 39% of Americans say they “believe in the theory of evolution,” while a quarter say they do not believe in the theory, and another 36% don't have an opinion either way. These attitudes are strongly related to education and, to an even greater degree, religiosity.

 

Note: the paper in her hand is written by an evangelical group called Living Waters Publications.

 

I don’t think much more has to be said. Thus the cockroach in the painting.
