A belated Happy Birthday...Mr Darwin

February 11th, 2009 was Charles Darwin's 200th birthday. Somehow I missed this and didn't know it before today...but I stumbled across some little Darwinian tidbits during my foray into the world wide web today.   Charles Darwin shocked the world by declaring humans and apes are related – an idea Leonardo da Vinci had 350 years earlier

Compliments of the Gallup organization:
  • One-third of Americans believe the Bible is Literally True. There is a high inverse correlation between education and belief in a literal Bible.
  • Only 39% of Americans believe in Darwin's Theory of Evolution. There is a strong relationship between frequency of church attendance and education in the belief in Darwin's theory.
