So those finches that Darwin classified have started to evolve in just 20 years. Showing competitive selection for a different food source and how the environment changes species that undergoes ranom genetic changes.

Default "U.S. Lags World in Grasp of Genetics and Acceptance of Evolution"

"A comparison of peoples' views in 34 countries finds that the United States ranks near the bottom when it comes to public acceptance of evolution. Only Turkey ranked lower.

Among the factors contributing to America's low score are poor understanding of biology, especially genetics, the politicization of science and the literal interpretation of the Bible by a small but vocal group of American Christians, the researchers say.

“American Protestantism is more fundamentalist than anybody except perhaps the Islamic fundamentalist, which is why Turkey and we are so close,” said study co-author Jon Miller of Michigan State University."

I believe there's a saying

"What's popular isn't always right and what's right isn't always popular."

Yeah, americans are waging a war against education right now. That is why I am the White Wizard fighting for change. .. one forum at a time. It is also a political/religious thing going on now, stick their heads and all their constituents heads in the sand.

Ignoring genetics and evolution is REALLY going to get people far. . .
