More Americans Believe in the Devil, Hell and Angels than in Darwin’s Theory of Evolution

That very large majorities of the American public believe in God, miracles, the survival of the soul after death, the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and the Virgin birth will come as no great surprise.

Overall, more people believe in the devil, hell and angels than believe in Darwin’s theory of evolution.

  2. Any political program that relies on the majority being capable of or interested in critical thinking or scientific literacy is blind to facts such as this.

  3. Can’t say I’m surprised.
