Findings from the National Study of Religion and Human Origins


What does the U.S. public actually believe about evolution and human origins? What social factors help predict these beliefs? This session will present an overview of the main findings from the first nationally representative, detailed survey of religion and human origins. We will explore the full spectrum of positions that the public holds, why they believe it is important or unimportant to hold these beliefs, and the influence of family, friends, education, and religious congregations on these beliefs.
