Happy Birthday Charles Darwin

200 years ago Charles Darwin was born and about 50 years later and some time on the Galapagos Islands  he wrote his book “The Origin of Species.” Darwin, who laid the foundation for what is known as the Theory of Evolution isn’t being celebrated the entire world over. As a matter of fact, there is one country in the world that as a whole doesn’t believe in evolution. That country is the United States of America. Only 39 percent of American “believe” in evolution. 39 PERCENT!

The good news is: 

There is a strong relationship between education and belief in Darwin’s theory, as might be expected, ranging from 21% of those with high-school educations or less to 74% of those with postgraduate degrees.
