THE BITTER-CLINGING FRINGE:

In U.S., 46% Hold Creationist View of Human Origins (Frank Newport, 6/01/12, Gallup)

Forty-six percent of Americans believe in the creationist view that God created humans in their present form at one time within the last 10,000 years. The prevalence of this creationist view of the origin of humans is essentially unchanged from 30 years ago, when Gallup first asked the question. About a third of Americans believe that humans evolved, but with God's guidance; 15% say humans evolved, but that God had no part in the process.

With a population that's 80% creationist and where Darwinists are so marginal, isn't it more appropriate to wonder why they embrace Scientism than to fret that the rest of us reject it?
