"Consider, for example, that many Americans who claim to believe in natural selection are unable to accurately describe how natural selection works.This suggests that their belief is not necessarily rooted in an appreciation of the evidence and arguments"

They dont need to know anything about evolution to disbelieve in it. As far as they're concerned the Bible is right, so by default evolution must be wrong.
