I guess this is why statistics like these (below) really shouldn't surprise us:

"Americans rank next-to-last on a survey of 34 nations' acceptance of evolution as a scientific fact. Our awareness of this scientific reality has actually gone down over the past 20 years, no doubt as a result of the so-called "intelligent design" movement and other Christian fundamentalist campaigns. In fact, frequent churchgoers in the US are most likely to doubt evolution. How will their children - and ours - become the great scientists, doctors, and engineers of tomorrow?"

Answer: They won't.
