Apparently, in a study of 34 countries' acceptance of evolution- America ranks #33. Religious fundamentalists in America are also less likely to believe in evolutionary theory than their European counterparts.

While American fundamentalists tend to interpret the Bible literally and to view Genesis as a true and accurate account of creation, mainstream Protestants in both the United States and Europe instead treat Genesis as metaphorical, the researchers say.

“Whether it’s the Bible or the Koran, there are some people who think it’s everything you need to know,” Miller said. “Other people say these are very interesting metaphorical stories in that they give us guidance, but they’re not science books.”

My question is: What can be done to curb the ignorance? I am sincerely at a loss.
