34% of American College Grads Stupid

A Newsweek poll reports that 34% of college graduates surveyed believe that “the Biblical account of creation” is a fact.

Other poll results:

On Religion:

  • 48% of Americans surveyed reject the theory of evolution.
  • 73% of Evangelical Protestants believe that God created humans less than 10,000 years ago. 39% of non-Evangelicals and 41% of Catholics agree.
  • 10% of Americans have “no religion”, but only 6% don’t believe in any god at all. 3% admit to being atheist.
  • 62% of voters wouldn’t vote for an atheist candidate (so much for there not being a religious test for candidates).
  • 32% of respondents believe that organized religion plays too large a role in politics. 31% disagree so it’s pretty much split.

If the survey is accurate on a larger scale, if it is representative of all Americans, the evolution statistic is pretty discouraging.

On Bush and Iraq:

  • 57% of respondents support the Democrat’s plan of setting a “goal” for withdrawal of troops in the recently passed supplemental spending bills.
  • President Bush’s approval on Iraq is at 28%. His overall approval rating is at 33%.
  • 66% of respondents are “dissatisfied” with the direction in which our country is headed.

Tony Snow has cancer

CNN is reporting that White House Press Secretary Tony Snow had a growth removed from his abdomen Monday and that it is both cancerous and has spread to his liver.

The story’s not made it to an actual article yet on CNN but it has made it to USA Today.

Presidential spokesman Tony Snow’s surgery to remove a small growth showed that his cancer has returned, the White House said Tuesday.

He may work for the devil incarnate but he doesn’t deserve this. No one does.
