The Evolved Mind

I know that among many people there is a notion that those who seek to get evolution out of schools are just some small, rabid fringe group.

We should be so lucky.

Here are the real numbers:

- Only 35% of Americans think that evolution is well-supported by evidence.

- Nearly half of all Americans believe that human beings “were created by God essentially as they are today about 10,000 years ago.”

So human beings today are essentially the same as they were 10,000 years ago? The more I read about the views on this topic, the more that sounds about right.

Concentration is important!
