Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) December 20, 2005
Scooop.net (http://www.scooop.net), a next-generation media site based on democratic voting principles and active participation of its members, released the results of its weekly hot topic poll regarding the nation’s view on whether the subject of intelligent design should be taught in public schools. Although the majority of those surveyed answered in the affirmative, support from everyday Americans was conditional. When asked if they believed that the subject of intelligent design would be better addressed in a class involving philosophy, 68.4% of those surveyed said yes.
Scooop.net conducted its “Hot Topic” study to gauge the level of support that Americans possess regarding a radical change of current federal and state policy toward the teaching of intelligent design in public schools.
When asked whether alternative theories of the beginning of life should be taught in public school 61.6% said yes. An additional 68.4% said that all types of philosophy, including religious philosophy, should be taught in public schools as an “elective class.”
Most Americans consider that the concept of intelligent design does involve scientific facts. Six out of ten Americans feel that there are aspects of intelligent design that are based on scientific fact. Many Americans are also aware that the subject of evolution is based on a theory. When asked about how they would best describe the field of evolution as developed by Charles Darwin, 45.3% said that it is a theory that is based on some scientific facts. Surprisingly 34.4% feel that Darwin’s theory has some significant contradictions within it that don’t make sense.
This survey comes at the time of year when the vast majority of Americans are celebrating some type of religious holiday. A large contingent of Americans also feels that there is some sort of “war on Christmas.”
Scooop.net was launched to give the public at large a voice in what news they feel is important, and to provide a platform for Americans to clearly voice their opinions about the important issues of the day. Each week, a new topic will be selected from the news headlines, identified and voted on by Scooop.net members.
Next week’s hot topic will revolve around how far the U.S. government should go in terms of who should be electronically monitored and when with regard to fighting the war on terror. Scooop.net feels that this is an important subject considering the recent revelations about National Security Agency actions against those suspected of having affiliations with terror groups as reported by The New York Times.
