ABCNEWS.com : Survey: Majority Believe in 'Pseudoscience'
ABC shamefully panders to 'revealed truth' in an article about pseudoscience. Is it any wonder that people are confused and misinformed?
The universe began with a huge explosion. (True, according to the "Big Bang" theory widely accepted by scientists, but dismissed by some religious leaders.) 33 percent.
Human beings developed from earlier species of animals. (True, according to the theory of evolution, which is accepted by the majority of scientists, but not by many religious leaders.) 53 percent.
Of course scientific theories are tentative and falsifiable; that is what makes them scientific. It doesn't call for this kind of havering.
