If you believe a survey by PEW, you’ll know that NOT EVERYBODY BELIEVES IN EVOLUTION at all.

From a political viewpoint:

From a religious viewpoint:

  • 33% of white evangelical Protestants believe in evolution vs 78% of “mainline” Protestants
  • Almost 70% of white Catholics believe in evolution vs 53% of Hispanic Catholics
