In the United States, CBS News reported in October of 2005 that the Americans most likely to believe only in the theory of evolution are liberals.[1]

The CBS News reported the following:

Americans most likely to believe in only evolution are liberals (36 percent), those who rarely or never attend religious services (25 percent), and those with a college degree or higher (24 percent).

White evangelicals (77 percent), weekly churchgoers (74 percent) and conservatives (64 percent), are mostly likely to say God created humans in their present form.[2]

Given that liberalism is so prevalent in academia, it is not entirely surprising that college graduates are indoctrinated into the atheistic evolutionary paradigm via evolutionary propaganda. The evolutionary paradigm has a history which is fraught with fraud and hoaxes.

Despite the lack of evidence for the evolutionary position and the counter evidential nature of the evolutionary paradigm, atheists and liberals persist in advocating the evolutionary paradigm. The continued support of the atheist and liberal community for the evolutionary paradigm is not surprising given the that the Wall Street Journal reported:

The reality is that the New Atheist campaign, by discouraging religion, won't create a new group of intelligent, skeptical, enlightened beings. Far from it: It might actually encourage new levels of mass superstition. And that's not a conclusion to take on faith -- it's what the empirical data tell us.

"What Americans Really Believe," a comprehensive new study released by Baylor University yesterday, shows that traditional Christian religion greatly decreases belief in everything from the efficacy of palm readers to the usefulness of astrology. It also shows that the irreligious and the members of more liberal Protestant denominations, far from being resistant to superstition, tend to be much more likely to believe in the paranormal and in pseudoscience than evangelical Christians....

This is not a new finding. In his 1983 book "The Whys of a Philosophical Scrivener," skeptic and science writer Martin Gardner cited the decline of traditional religious belief among the better educated as one of the causes for an increase in pseudoscience, cults and superstition. He referenced a 1980 study published in the magazine Skeptical Inquirer that showed irreligious college students to be by far the most likely to embrace paranormal beliefs, while born-again Christian college students were the least likely.[3]

The results of the aforementioned findings are not unexpected given the data concerning the causes of atheism and given the present state of academia in the Western world.

American Liberals and Recent Behavior in Accordance with Social Darwinism

Arthur C. Brooks, a professor at Syracuse University, published "Who Really Cares: The Surprising Truth About Compassionate Conservatism."[4] Professor Brooks found that American liberals are significantly less charitable than conservatives despite earning more.[5] Conservatives also donate more time and donate more blood. [6] The results are not entirely surprising given that Darwinists have displayed behavior in accordance with social darwinism. According to the Pew Research Center, American liberals are more likely to support pro-abortion views. [7] Creation Ministries International has written that evolutionary thinking has contributed to the eugenic idea of aborting babies with defects and has also contributed to erroneous and immoral justifications for abortion.[8][9]
