I am ashamed for my country, the U.S.! I am absolutely disgusted by the revealing results of this study. I recently received my BS in biology this past spring, so I especially feel like I have been slapped in the face. My scientific background has had a significant impact on my views and ideals as an atheist. Atheists will never be understood, appreciated, or respected in the U.S. until scientific literacy is strengthened in the school systems. Unforunately that won't change the working knowledge of adults now or any time soon. I feel as if my country still believes that the Earth is flat and I am surrounded by morons... Luckily, this group is an outlet and a haven which gives me hope that some people in this world actually think for themselves and seek knowledge when the realize they don't have it!
