'Nearly all scientists (97%) say humans and other living things have evolved over time,' while only 61% of the public agrees, according to a new report (PDF, p. 37) from the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press. Asked which comes closer to their view, 'Humans and other living things have evolved over time' or 'Humans and other living things have existed in their present form since the beginning of time,' 97% of scientists responding chose the former option, as opposed to only 2% choosing the latter option; 61% of the public responding chose the former option, as opposed to 31% choosing the latter option.
