Apparently,

Members of Protestant denominations, like Catholics, are [nominally] accepting of evolution; just the [perpetually-growing-in-numbers] biblical literalist fundamentalists are really holding out.

"There was a growing need to demonstrate that the loud, shrill voices of fundamentalists claiming that Christians had to choose between modern science and religion were presenting a false dichotomy," said Michael Zimmerman, dean of the College of Letters and Sciences at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and the major organizer of the letter project.

Mr. Zimmerman said more than 10,000 ministers had signed the letter, which states, in part, that the theory of evolution is "a foundational scientific truth." To reject it, the letter continues, "is to deliberately embrace scientific ignorance and transmit such ignorance to our children."



Also, I remember once making a poll trying to relate people's [age], [religiousness], and [desire to spawn semiclones have children]. There seemed to be a positive relationship between all three in my tiny, unscientific sample, if I remember correctly. I'm not sure why I was just reminded of it...
I'm not en-ti-re-ly sure I understand the origins of this calm moon champ, but it has further opened my ears to the Power of the Anagram. in that sort of word-heuristics way. i don't think i'm claiming to make sense.
