Just in time for Charles Darwin’s birthday on February 12, a new nationwide survey reveals that 81% of American adults believe that “when teaching Darwin’s theory of evolution, biology teachers should cover both scientific evidence that supports the theory and scientific evidence critical of the theory.” Only 19% of Americans believe that “biology teachers should cover only scientific evidence that supports the theory.” Finally, parents are becoming aware of the BS that is being taught their children.

Support for teaching the scientific evidence for and against Darwin’s theory is overwhelming regardless of age, gender, religious affiliation, geography, party affiliation,and household income:
79% of men and 83%of women support teaching the evidence for and against Darwin’s theory
85% of theists, 65% of atheists, and 79% of agnostics support
this approach.
79% of Democrats support teaching the evidence for and against Darwin’s theory,and so do 82% of independents and85% of Republicans.
85% of middle-aged Americans (ages 45-59) support teaching the evidence for and against Darwin’s theory,and so do 81% of young adults (ages 18-29) and senior citizens (ages 60 and older).
