Evolution in the News

I found this exchange in a recent post at the BBC website story on a recent UK survey to assess the peoples views on evolution and the origin of mankind (the italics are mine). Enjoy.

Cecil Andrews of fundamentalist church Take Heed Ministries said he was not surprised that Creationism was so prevalent in Northern Ireland.

"This little province has been blessed with a great biblical heritage and I think that's reflected in the results of this survey," he said.

Church of Ireland lay preacher Graham Nevin said Christianity in Northern Ireland "tended to be quite conservative".

"What does surprise me is that 25% of people in Northern Ireland had given any thought to where the world came from," he said.
