NEW YORK (Reuters) – One-third of Americans reject the idea of evolution and Republicans have grown more skeptical about it, according to a poll released on Monday.

Sixty percent of Americans say that "humans and other living things have evolved over time," the telephone survey by the Pew Research Center's Religion and Public Life Project showed (Click http://www.pewforum.org/2013/12/30/publics-views-on-human-evolution/ for the full survey).

But 33 percent reject the idea of evolution, saying that "humans and other living things have existed in their present form since the beginning of time," Pew said in a statement.

    But, beyond dogmatisms, is there evolution if there is no time? How will evolutionary biology meet new physical paradigms about time, space and so on? Will new conceptual changes deny evolution? Or on the contrary, will it become a more extraordinary process, full of astonishing implications? If so, will human being and the rest of life beings become different as science progresses? Will the image in front of the mirrow of theories change? After all, is life, its origin and evolution, something fix-finite-defined? That is,can one understand it with its peculiar brain and its limited words? Or will science add indefinetly without a complete undertanding? Along these lines, there is a different book, a preview in goo.gl/rfVqw6 Just a suggestion.
