Pro-science religion and anti-science religion

What this chart indicates is that the big religious split in the United States is not between Protestants and Catholics, or among Christians, Jews and Muslims, but between pro-science religion and anti-science religion.

This chart is based on a 2007 survey by Pew Research.  It will be interesting to see if the 2014 survey is significantly different.

    What type of environmental regulations? Because I’m all for clean water, clean air, requiring catalytic converters on cars, protecting our ground water, etc…

    Things get a little murkier when we start getting into the realm of carbon credits and basically being taxed to breath (since we do emit the devil gas carbon when we exhale…).
