The state of science approval in the United States is downright pathetic. It amazes me how many people ignore science and instead go with their beliefs, refusing to look at the evidence right in front of them. For example, a recent poll came out discussing people's approval of varies sciences facts. And by facts (I could also use the word theory), I mean statements backed up by evidence.
New Poll Reveals Many Americans Express Doubt Over Global Warming, Evolution, Big Bang
In this article, it's stated that only 51% do NOT accept the Big Bang! Really? Despite the overwhelming evidence, 49% do not accept or are either unsure on the Big Bang. Sigh. Numbers are just as bad for the age of the Earth, climate change, and evolution.
On the bright side, only 4% doubt that smoking causes cancer, leaving some hope for humanity.
I encourage you to continue introducing your children to science. Don't let them be a person who ignores the evidence science presents in its statements.
