Among the general public the"vote" is clearly in favor of CREATIONISM
I find it very surprizing
that most of the general public rejects evolutionary development
and believes that the Earth is only a few 1000 years old;
(maybe the whole universe?), but then again,
I was quite taken aback when I found out that my neighbor, Angie,
believed that. She identified herself as being a Catholic.
(Italian, but she looked Irish)
I am not of the general impression
that this is what Catholics believe,
but I am no expert. I don 't ofen bring this subject up in conversation.
Did this come from reputable pollsters ?
I am going to start asking around
to get a sense of how widely prevalent these concepts r.
I have hitherto been of the general impression
that almost everyone accepted the conventional science
of Earth being c.4,600,000,000 years old and the universe
being a bit less than 14 billion years old, in addition to evolution
from microbiology to Man.
