Noah is a poorly written fable, grow up.<quoted text>
Have you checked the news on what the majority of AMERICANS accept?
From CBS NEWS, February 11, 2009:
Poll: Majority Reject Evolution
Most Americans do not accept the theory of evolution. Instead, 51 percent of Americans say God created humans in their present form, and another three in 10 say that while humans evolved, God guided the process. Just 15 percent say humans evolved, and that God was not involved.
These views are similar to what they were in November 2004 shortly after the presidential election.
Also, it was YOU who once posted this comment,You should know that being in the minority doesn't mean you're wrong. What percentage of the population did Noah and his family make up?
And I feel sure you remember that the answer you were given is 100%, lol.
It's a good thing science is not based on the views of the non-science literate general public.
However, Baylor University, the largest Baptist University in the world and arguably one of the finest Christian Schools in America has stated: "Evolution, a foundational principle of modern biology, is supported by overwhelming scientific evidence and is accepted by the vast majority of scientists. Because it is fundamental to the understanding of modern biology, the faculty in the Biology Department at Baylor University, Waco, TX, teach evolution throughout the biology curriculum. We are in accordance with the American Association for Advancement of Science's statement on evolution. We are a science department, so we do not teach alternative hypotheses or philosophically deduced theories that cannot be tested rigorously."
Pope John Paul Paul II told the Pontifical Academy of Sciences in 1996 that new scientific knowledge has led us to the conclusion that the theory of evolution is no longer a mere hypothesis.
The Church of England, 2009:Charles Darwin: 200 years from your birth, the Church of England owes you an apology for misunderstanding you and, by getting our first reaction wrong, encouraging others to misunderstand you still. We try to practise the old virtues of 'faith seeking understanding' and hope that makes some amends."
In the main atrium in Notre Dames new Jordan Hall of Science, there is a plaque that reads: "Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution."
The illiterate few really have no say in the matter.
