Teach The Controversy?

04 September 2006

Despite the fact that 95% of all American scientists (99.85% when you adjust to look at only those in relevent fields) believe in evolution and reject theories of special creation, a large number of people seem to think that there is some sort of controversy.
This graph on the right, gathered in a recent survey, demonstrates that many people in this country are misinformed as to the scientific consensus on the issue. Further, the misconception seems to be linked more heavily to the religious, particularly evangelical protestants.
