Numerous studies have found that profession of “belief in” evolution has no correlation with an understanding of basic evolutionary science. Individuals who say they “believe” are no more likely than those who say they “don’t” to give the correct responses to questions pertaining to natural selection, random mutation, and genetic variance—the core elements of the modern synthesis (Bishop & Anderson, 1990; Demastes, Settlage, & Good, 1995; Shtulman, 2006).
