"Of all the questions you might want to ask / about angels, the only one you ever hear / is how many can dance on the head of a pin." -- Billy Collins, bio {Others' quotes}


One Nation, Under Canada

You might ask, "who is stronger willed, the one who defies facts or the one who accepts them?"
When asked if humans evolved through natural selection, 58% of surveyed Canadians answered affirmatively compared to only 16% of Americans.

When asked if humans evolved with help from divine guidance, 19% of Canadians agreed compared to 38% of Americans.

Finally, when asked if humans were created by God in the last 10,000 years, 14% of Canadians agreed while 40% of Americans said yes.

This is according to a recent poll conducted by EKOS that gauged attitudes of Canadians toward politics, science and religion. The data is compared to a survey conducted by Gallup in the U.S. last December in which similar questions were asked. (Story in the Toronto Globe & Mail)
