Half of UK Rejects Evolution

I dont know I just thought this was weird.

A recent survey of 2,060, showed that only around half of the population in the UK believes that evolution is real. Nearly 12% surveyed said they believed intelligent design over evolution while others mixed the two ideas together in their beliefs.

James Williams of Sussex University said, “Evolution is a theory and a fact. You accept it because of the evidence. What the creationists have done is put a cloak of pseudo-science to wrap up their religious belief.”

The survey also found that about 10% believed in the young earth theory where it is thought that the Earth was created by God in the last 10,000 years. The survey was performed to coincide with the 150th anniversary of On the Origin of Species.
