The above may or may not be misleading.

The terms non religious, none, ect don't necessarily mean athiest.

Have seen surveys where a large proportion of pop. said they were non religious and at the same time they believed in a God.

Sort of the 'I love Jesus and hate the church.'

As for China, independent polls are restricted. The Chinese government is athiest, the government poll sez ...

Evolutionists: 'Oops! We May Have Been Wrong All Along'
By John Ellis June 29, 2018

Thanks to a new study, evolutionists and their disciples are having to reexamine some of their most revered dogma. Particularly, evolutionists are now having to make sense of conclusions stating that almost all animal species, as well as humans, showed up on the stage of human history at the same time.

Intelligent design anyone?

Consider the source. The coded language used. Dogma. Faith. utter twaddle.

If you read the original article you note some interesting things. The authors conclude that 100k years seems to be about the amount of time required for speciation in mammals. Birds, plants, molluscs, insects etc not included in the study. Absent other external forces that impose a high degree of selective pressure.

So: Nothing about general evolution overturned. No "dogama" in evolutionary biology. Just another evangelical wack job reporting his slant based on an article the reporter did not understand and probably did not read. As is usual for evangelicals.

Kaku might think whatever he wants, but can he prove anything? NO.

But the question WHY is not science, science answers the HOW questions.

Am in the process of reading:
Quote:
'Stealing from God: Why Atheists Need God to Make Their Case – January 1, 2015
by Frank Turek (Author), Ravi Zacharias (Foreword)'
https://www.amazon.com/Stealing-God-Ath ... 1612917011
If you think atheists have reason, evidence, and science on their side, think again! Award-winning author Dr. Frank Turek (I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist) will show you how atheists steal reason, evidence, science, and other arguments from God in trying to make their case for atheism. If that sounds contradictory, it’s because it is! Atheists can’t make their case without appealing to realities only theism can explain. In an engaging and memorable way, Stealing from God exposes these intellectual crimes atheists are committing and then provides four powerful reasons for why Christianity is true.


Pretty good read, so I decided to post his video about his view here:


He starts with Reason, the book starts with Causality.

Utter twaddle. Atheists can't "steal" from that which is not in evidence, IMO it's really the "faith based" views that need to make their case. They have not, because they've got nothing other than "you have to take our word for it."
