LTRP Note: As Lighthouse Trails has stated in times past, evolution is part of what we call the “death” religion and the “new” spirituality. The article below by Pew Forum on Religion, a liberal, religious think-tank, is posted here for informational and research purposes. See below the article for a 10-minute preview clip of Roger Oakland’s Searching for the Truth on Origins lecture series on creation versus evolution. His series explains why morality declines in a nation that rejects the Creator.

According to a new Pew Research Center analysis, six-in-ten Americans (60%) say that “humans and other living things have evolved over time,” while a third (33%) reject the idea of evolution, saying that “humans and other living things have existed in their present form since the beginning of time.” The share of the general public that says that humans have evolved over time is about the same as it was in 2009, when Pew Research last asked the question.
