Where the World is Flat as a Pancake

Says Power blogger Andrew Sullivan:
42 Percent: That's how many Americans believe that the earth and all its creatures have always been the same since they were created by God in Genesis. Fully "70 percent of white evangelical Protestants say that life has existed in its present form since the beginning of time." 63 percent of them are "very certain" that this is true. I must say that there are times when one is rendered speechless. No educated intelligent person could possibly look at the evidence of science and say such a thing. And yet we are supposed to have a reasoned debate with these people on the matter. How is that even possible?
Oh, it's not only in America, Andrew. It sounds very much like our local discourse on all subject matters, not just evolution.
