Here is an interesting piece of information; Consistent with previous polls, in the United States, acceptance of evolution was higher among respondents who were younger, with a higher level of household income, and with a higher level of education.
Creationism, the belief of divine engineering of the human race, certainly has made a name for itself. So just how prevalent is creationism? Which countries contain the most creationists? A 2011 global poll had found that the creationist view was most popular in Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Indonesia, with the United States ranking 6th, between Brazil and Russia.
Something else that people have noticed is that no matter how much scientific evidence is shown to a creationist, they cannot accept it due to their faith. For example, one of the most famous Creationist of current times, Ken Ham, said that nothing would change his mind, there is no evidence that could ever possibly be shown to him that would cause him to change his faith. An all too commonly voiced sentence...
I personally have been told “This is all old evidence, how do scientist know anything if they were not there to witness it? If we were to even consider listening to scientists, *smirk* we would need new evidence!”
Well ladies and gentlemen, let me present to you this.
Tibetans are able to live at high altitudes thanks to a gene picked up when their ancestors mated with a species of human they helped push to extinction, according to a new study. These people are alive now, they are not fossils, they have not been placed there by God to test our faith. They are real people with names and families. I encourage everyone to read this article and tell me what you think. Is this now proof enough? If not, what amount of proof would constitute enough?
Just in case you missed it, here is the article again.
