- Sep 1, 2006Deborah,
This is strictly anecdotal, but some years ago a well-educated
Mexican friend of mine�a teacher of American literature at a Mexican
university�told me that the most puzzling thing about the U.S. and
American culture to her was our persistent and highly emotional
rejection of evolution theory. I guess I'm not surprised at the
survey you cited.
