Who would have thunk?
recently I read that the British also have a large percentage
of people that believe in Creationism and Intelligent Design.
Something like 40 % total.
I'm struck. Why is it called 'pro-choice' ONLY when the women CHOOSE an abortion? When women "Choose" to be against abortion it's "Against Women's Rights".
I agree with that! But things being what they are, the poll is also good news, for the unborn.
Because "a woman's right to choose" makes it easier to gain support and sympathy than "murdering an unborn child". But I guess you already knew that.
In the same way that you're more likely to sell veal if you don't label it "Dead Baby Cow."
Hi. My first post on these boards. The above is completely wrong. Hardly anyone in the UK is even religious, let alone some sort of loony creationist.
Am I welcome here? There seem to be a lot of Americans on one of the UK boards I go on, so this is in the nature of an exchange trip!
Welcome! Now do you have sources? 22+17=39%
Pretty close to his 40% number.
Here's one for nosarcasm, who's MIA right now:
I am flabbergasted.
And a little embarrassed. Who would have thought that there was that level of ignorance in my country?
Clutching at straws, I wonder where the survey was conducted... it absolutely does not reflect my experience. As far as I know, only one person in my extensive circle of friends and colleagues and aquaintances is even a Christian.
Amazing what you learn when you ask how others see you.
Tell me, is it true that there is a real swell of support for anti-scientific theories in the US?
I read that article, thats how I came up with my 40%. I was surprised
But now looking at the Anglo American non print of the Mohammed cartoons
it seems the US and England are closer in their mindset then I thought.
