More Monkey Business

It's not really about monkeys.

But I couldn't resist the pun.

There are a few aspects of science that are universally misunderstood. One of the most misunderstood is what Darwin theorized.

For that's what Darwin's original writings were = a theory. Not a belief. Which is why I have to suppress a sigh every time I read something like this:
Twice as many Americans believe in God and half again as many believe in a literal devil than the scientific theory of evolution, a new survey finds. Indeed, Darwin’s theory barely outpolls UFOs and witches.
Read the rest of the post, from Outside the Beltway. The picture alone is worth it.
