USA, Anthropology and Evolution

The age-old dilemma between science and religion may not be settled as you think, at least not in the United States. The population of the world’s first economy is still torn between evolution and creationism. Now, one theory has emerged as the dominant one.

A new study by an international group of scientists shows that since 2016 the majority of Americans are leaning towards the theory of evolution. Prior to this, there was a statistical association between the two groups.

“From 1985 to 2010, there was a statistical association between acceptance and rejection of evolution. But then acceptance increased, becoming the majority position in 2016,” said John Miller of the University of Michigan Institute for Social Research and lead author of the study.

The researchers examined a range of surveys from the US National Science Council, several national surveys funded by units of the National Science Foundations, and a series focusing on adult civic literacy funded by NASA. The data spanned more than 35 years of surveys.

One of the findings of the study is that various aspects of education, such as civics skills, taking science courses in college, and obtaining a college degree were among the most important factors that led to the acceptance of evolution.

Co-author Mark Ackerman noted that “almost twice as many Americans earned a college degree in 2018 than in 1988. It’s hard to get a college degree without earning at least some respect for the success of science.”

Data taken from 1985 Because this year in US national polls, adults were asked to indicate whether or not they agreed with the following statement:

“Humans, as we know them today, evolved from earlier types of animals.”

Until 2007, polls showed that Americans were evenly divided on the issue of evolution.

This is not the first study by Miller to address this topic. In 2005 he conducted a similar study on the acceptance of evolution in 34 developed countries. The research showed that by 27% Only Turkey scored lower than the United States.

But over the past decade, even 2019The percentage of American adults who agreed with this statement increased from 40% Al 54%.

The current study, published In Public Understanding of Science, he showed that religious fundamentalism is the most powerful factor in rejecting evolution. Although their number has decreased in the last decade or so 30% of Americans are still fundamentalists, according to research.

“Such beliefs are not only stubborn, they are increasingly politicized,” Miller noted, adding that there is a widening gap between Republicans and Democrats’ acceptance of the development.

Since 2019, it has become 34% Republicans Pre-evolution conservatives compared to 83% of Liberal Democrats.
