More public insanity
How else to characterize wide spread public opinion favourable to Creationism:
Darwin teaching ‘divides opinion’
Among those who knew of Darwinism, on average 53% felt other possible perspectives should also be taught.
The figure was 68% in Argentina, in the poll for the British Council, which promotes educational opportunities.
In Great Britain 60% felt this way. In Egypt, 27% said such theories should not be in science lessons at all.
The British Council, the UK’s international organisation for educational opportunities and cultural relations, is running a programme of activities under the banner Darwin Now.
And the truly insane factoid is that the sample in Egypt is only 27% for the teaching of Creationism along with Evolution. Is the Western World going mad, sad or just plain bad?
