Running It Up the Zogby Poll
Just a few months before the 150th anniversary of Darwin's On the Origin of Species, a newly released Zogby poll shows that the American public overwhelmingly rejects Darwinian theory in favor of intelligent design. When asked if life developed "through an unguided process of random mutations and natural selection," a standard definition of Darwinism, only 33 percent of respondents said they agreed with the statement. But 52 percent agreed that "the development of life was guided by intelligent design."
Surely, even the Undiscovery Boyz know that scientific truth or falsity is not decided by democratic vote by those untrained in the science.
You'd almost think they were politicians or ad men instead of scientists.
