Talking Brits & Deism

"Belief in creationism is widespread in Britain, according to a new survey."

"More than half of the public believe that the theory of evolution cannot explain the full complexity of life on Earth, and a "designer" must have lent a hand, the findings suggest.

"And one in three believe that God created the world within the past 10,000 years.

"The survey, by respected polling firm ComRes, will fuel the debate around evolution and creationism ahead of next week's 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin.

Richard Dawkins, the evolutionary biologist and author of The God Delusion, said the findings revealed a worrying level of scientific ignorance among Britons."

Or maybe an ignorance of genetics and swarming on the part of Dawkins....JB
