To thine own self be true

Doublethink

Posted by Polonius on 28 July, 2007

I find the popularity of the Abrahamic version of the creation myth in America quite depressing. But a Gallup poll reveals the inconsistency of people in responding to polls. 53% of people think that evolution is at least probably true, while 66% think that creationism is at least probably true. Even before we start taking account of those who had no opinion (which reduces the total who did have one below 100%), that means that 19% believe both evolution and creationism are probably true.
