Millennials Are America's Most Godless Grown-Ups

evolutionWhile a plurality of Americans overall still believe in creationism, a majority of young adults believe in evolution.

Gallup regularly polls Americans on their beliefs about how human beings came to be. Overall opinions have stayed remarkably stable over time, with a plurality believing that God created humans in their present form within the last 10,000 years.

The position that humans evolved and God had nothing to do with it has grown in popularity, with nearly twice as large a share of respondents believing this in 2014 than in 1982.

Gallup found that education, religious behavior, and age all were big factors in how one views human origins. The younger, better-educated, and less religious you are, the more likely you are to agree with the scientific consensus on where we come from.

TVNL Comment:  Religion is a BELIEF system.  Science is NOT a belief system.  Scientific conclusions are based on epirical evidence and years of research and study.  You can ask people if they believe in ghosts. You cannot legitimately ask people whether or not they 'believe' in data based on the existing fossil record, carbon dating, and other tangible proofs with which they are totally unfamiliar.

All this shows is that a plurality of Americans are brainwashed and totally ignorant of scientific research and documentation.  Surely, many of these same creationists also 'believe' that the earth is flat.
