I was going to try and somehow weave together the video below and the results of this poll mentioned over at the NCSE. But then I decided not to, knowing that you'll check them both out anyway - 'cause you're just that awesome.

The Poll Results

QUESTION: Most astronomers believe the universe formed about 13.7 billion years ago in a massive event called the Big Bang. Do you think that's about right or do think the universe was created much more recently?
Women were more likely than men to accept the 13.7-billion-year figure (64% versus 60%), Democrats more likely than independents, and independents more likely than Republicans (71%, 66%, and 44%, respectively), blacks and Latinos more likely than whites (75%, 73%, and 58%, respectively)

The Hilariously Awesome Video
