Results of a new survey, described in the Times, says that Americans are 2nd most likely to doubt evolution out of 33 countries. Only Turkey had more doubters. A meager 40% of survey respondents in the U.S. agreed with the statement that “Human beings, as we know them, developed from earlier species of animals.”

And then there's Iceland, where 85% of respondents agreed with the statement. Oh, how I wish I was resting in a hot spring-heated pool there right now. (Thanks for the link, Murph!) ben
