Zogby poll on evolution is released

March 7, 2006

A poll by Zogby International reportedly shows most Americans support public school teachers presenting evolution and intelligent design theories.

The poll was conducted for the Center for Science and Culture, a Seattle-based organization that's part of the Discovery Institute, which promotes the belief that life is so complex, it must be the product of intelligent design and not the evolutionary process.

"This poll shows widespread support for the idea that when biology teachers teach Darwin's theory of evolution, they should present the scientific evidence that supports it as well as the evidence against it," said Casey Luskin, program officer for public policy and legal affairs with Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture.

The Zogby poll reportedly showed 69 percent of Americans support the presentation of Intelligent Design, with 21 percent believing only Darwin's theory of evolution should be part of a high school's curriculum.
