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?Here are the results he got in a poll of 1200 people:
The huge problem here, of course, is that even in the original poll on the Daily Kos site, "much more recently" is not defined and might mean different things to different people. Some might think it was created eight billion years ago, which is much more recent than 13.7. Some might subscribe to "last Thursday-ism" (appearance of age). Some might be young earth creationists. There is simply no way of knowing exactly what people think here. Is it bigger or smaller than a breadbox? This is very inexact. Southerners might be crazy, or they might not know what the poller means by the question.
