america is the weirdest country in the world

I got this via the awesome blog Things You Wouldn't Know If We Didn't Blog Incessantly (tywkiwdbi for short).

Acceptance of Evolution in Western Countries:

According to the National Geographic story that accompanies the image, only 14 percent of Americans polled believed that evolution is "definitely true," and Americans are actually three times more likely to be undecided about evolution than they were 20 years ago, up from 7 percent of those polled to 21 percent.

Also, this study indicated that fewer than half of Americans could offer even a minimal, informal definition of "DNA." Okay, if anyone asks, you tell them this:

DNA is the hereditary material in humans and almost all other organisms.

When did Japan join the Western Countries coalition???

Your post makes it sound like not believing in evolution is bad. Well...remember that it's only a theory!?!?!?

Here's Mr. Kirk Cameron and crazy dude explaining why God exists, not evolution, even using evidence as simple as a banana!

Clement: yes, and the world was created in seven days. Good lord. Can't it be both? Or do we have to oversimplify everything; especially for Kirk Cameron [choke, gasp]?
