This article reports that sixty-three percent of physicians believe that the theory of evolution is more correct than belief in intelligent design, though the responses vary significantly by religion. The survey was conducted by the Louis Finkelstein Institute for Social and Religious Research, a division of Jewish Theological Seminary, an educational and religious center of Conservative Judaism, in New York City, and HCD Research Inc., a Flemington, New Jersey-based marketing and communications company. Eighty-eight percent of Jewish doctors agreed more with evolution than with intelligent design.
