I agree with you that there is lots of anti-darwinist literature. What I
disagree with is that it is a growing group of people accepting
anti-darwinism. I don't see very many non-christians taking on evolution.
"In 1963, 65 percent of Americans believed the Bible was literally true.
This figure fell to 38 percent by 1978. the proportion of fundamentalists
hovered between 37 and 39 percent between 1978 and 1984, but has begun to
inch down again since then [down to 34 percent in 1985, and 31 percent in
1989].'"~George Gallup and Jim Castelli, The People's Religion (New York:
Macmillan 1989), pp 60-61 cited by Edward T. Babinski, Leaving the Fold
(Amherst: Prometheus Books, 1995) p. 22

Since the fundamentalists are the ones who believe that the Bible is
historical and believe that evolution is false, and they are decreasing in
number. Where is this upsurge in anti-evolutionists? Can you document it by
means of non christian books?


Adam, Apes and Anthropology
Foundation, Fall and Flood
& lots of creation/evolution information
