POLL: Allow Skeptics of Evolution in the Lab and Classroom
A new poll from One News Now shows that American believe skepticism in evolutionary theory is not a reason to remove a scientist from a lab or a teacher from the classroom. Triggered by the article on Nathaniel Abraham, a creationist biologist who was fired from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, One News Now asked America whether skepticism in evolution should disqualify an individual from scientific research or teaching a biology class. The answer was an overwhelming no. Over 95% of voters said that those who question Darwin should not be banned from scientific research or teaching biology. Less that 4% said they should.
