And Now, For Something Scary…

…the triumph of Faith over Reason. NBC did a telephone survey recently in the US on religion and American life. I find the answers to question 14 more than a little alarming:

Which do you think is more likely to actually be the explanation for the origin of human life on earth: evolution or the biblical account of creation?

Evolution                                  33%  
Total biblical account of creation  57%  
Don’t know/none of the above   10%   

So, let me get this right, nearly twice as many Americans surveyed thought that the book of Genesis is literallly true as opposed to the demonstrable facts of evolution?

Now, that’s scary…

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
