This Has Got to Be Disheartening to Darwinists

Which statements reflect your views on the origin of human beings?

1. We evolved from less advanced life forms over millions of years, and God did not directly guide this process.
2. We evolved from less advanced life forms over millions of years, but God guided this process.

  1. 4 polls including the one above plus Gallup, NBC, and FOX on the question of belief in evolution

    http://www.pollingreport.com/science.htm#Evolution

    2 polls on the question of teaching evolution (NY Times & Fox)

    http://www.pollingreport.com/e.....Curriculum

    NYT Poll 11/18/04

    “Would you generally favor or oppose teaching creation along with evolution in public schools?”

    Favor 65%
    Oppose 29%
    Unsure 6%

    Holy holy teachings, Batman! Two thirds of the public want creationism taught alongside evolution!

    I wonder what the percentage is if the public is asked the less controversial question:

    “Would you generally favor teaching both the strengths and weaknesses of evolution theory in public schools instead of only the strengths?”

    I’ve seldom seen over 90% of the U.S. population agree on anything but the hypothetical question above just might.

    Now ask me if the Discovery Institute fellows are on the right track just asking that the weaknesses of evolution be taught in public schools? You betcha. That’s a slam dunk with the people if the people get to choose instead of the courts choosing for them.

    And as we all know, as soon as the criticisms of evolution become general knowledge instead of secrets revealed only to grad students on a PhD track in biology, it’s all-over for the all-powerful mechanism of random mutation plus natural selection. Say goodnight, Darwin worshippers.

  2. While we’re on the subject of polls, here’s a doozy I’d like the public to become aware of:

    Nature, Vol. 394, No. 6691, p. 313

    “Leading scientists still reject God”

    Article reproduced at http://www.stephenjaygould.org.....le002.html

    Among National Academy of Science members in 1998

    7% express a personal belief in God
    72% express a personal disbelief in God
    21% express doubt or agnosticism about God

    I trust the public will draw the obvious conclusion from this about what inspires Darwinian narrative apologists.

  3. What would be interesting is whether these number can translate into furthering the vise-strategy.

    Here is my proposed poll with my estimated results:

    Dear taxpayer, do you think your tax moneys should be used to promote atheism by funding scientists purporting to do science, but who are really furthering materialist agendas under the guise of furthering scientific understanding?

    (my estimated numbers based on the above numbers)

    No : 87%
    Yes : 13 percent

    Were you aware your hard earned tax dollars were being wasted at the
    “National Evolutionary Synthesis Center”

    http://www.nescent.org.

    Do you think congress should review their operations, and if the scientist fail to present themselves to a congressional inquiry and answer the vise questions, funding for these centers should be suspended? These scientist are after all supposedly accountable to you, the taxpayer, they should be called into account of how they use your money.

  4. North Carolina (the beneficiary of the federal funds) has two Republican U.S. senators.

    http://www.senate.gov/general/.....m?State=NC

    Working through them would be the way to go. They are going to want the money for their state. That’s a given. That’s what senators do – get as much pork as they can headed home. What might work out better is to ask them, through letters from their constituents, is to insure that funding for ID research is part and parcel of that $15M. I doubt you can beat ‘em in this case but you sure can join ‘em and help spend that money in a way more appealing to the conservative voters in North Carolina.

  5. Another interesting poll I stumbled onto.

    http://www.religioustolerance.org/ev_publi.htm

    Mainly summaries of Gallup polls over the years.

    Separates out by demographics: gender, race, income, education, scientists and everyone else.

    Interestingly this assertion:

    “Man has developed over millions of years from less advanced forms of life, but God guided this process, including man’s creation”

    is held true by an identical percentage of scientists alone and everyone together at 40%.

    Since only 7% of NAS members assert a positive belief in God (see poll at stephenjaygould.org) it appears that NAS does not represent the views of a huge number of scientists. 80% of NAS members assert a positive disbelief in God.

    It appears that the NAS is not representative of the views of science but rather is a clique of atheists representing the views of atheist scientists.

    It’s nothing short of outrageous that this tiny bastion of atheist scientists is the preeminent organzation advising the federal government on science policy. We’re getting blindsided. If the public knew about this it would demand this situation be changed.
