One interesting question from the online article. It said:

"A 2007 Gallup Poll found that more Americans accept the theory of
creationism than evolution. When those surveyed were asked about their views
on the origins of life, 66 percent said creation, defined as "the idea that
God created human beings pretty much in their present form at one time
within the last 10,000 years," is probably or definitely true. In
comparison, 53 percent said evolution, defined as "the idea that human
beings developed over millions of years from less advanced forms of life,"
is probably or definitely true."

66 and 53 percent don't add up to 100. Is this why Americans are confused?
They can't do math, and they can't do science?

fossils are on display in the museum. What does the museum's chief curator
think of these evolution-questioning tours? ABC's Brian Rooney reports.
