British Question Darwinian Evolution

Just as the battle is underway in the United States over whether Intelligent Design should be included in the public school curriculum, we read this article from BBC News which states that less than half of the Britons polled believe that evolution is the best explanation for the origin of life. This is remarkable considering the relative secularity of England over against the U.S. Even in a nation where far fewer people attend religious services, a sizeable minority (39%) believe in some theory of origins other than Darwinism and over 40% believe alternate theories (creationism or intelligent design) should be included in public education.

FYI - On Saturday, April 1, Dr. Angus Menuge will give a day-long seminar at Concordia Lutheran Church, 3109 Brownsville Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15227, (412)881-3005 on the question of science and faith, particularly as this relates to the current Intelligent Design controversy .
