It's Not Just Americans

The Rescuing Darwin survey, found that half of British adults do not believe in evolution, reports the UK's Guardian. The poll found that one-quarter of British adults say that the theory of evolution is "definitely true" and another quarter say it is "probably true." Twenty-two percent favor creationism or intelligent design, while 10 percent chose young Earth creationism. The survey, conducted by the British public theology think tank Theos, was done to coincide with Charles Darwin's 200th birthday and the 150th anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species.
