Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I am a regular on this: http://www.memeorandum.com/ site and get my daily dose of wingnuttery from there. That's how I ended up at that particular site.

I did register and they ask you more personal questions - income range, postcode, and some such to probably weigh your answers better, but also to give you more targeted questionnaires.

I got an email from my brother today about this survey that revealed that more than 50% of British subjects don;t believe in evolution. He quoted it from a German publication that hadn't bothered to look at the original survey, otherwise they would have been able to make a slightly better analysis - but that would have meant doing what you suggested, actually looking at the questions and not just at the interpretation in the summary...

Anyway - that survey has been thoroughly debunked - just cannot find anything about it in the moment, so you have to take my word for it...

No, I believe you.  I heard about that survey and thought it sounded decidedly unlikely to be reliable.

Actually, one of my favorite (scary) public-opinion stories involves the US survey that re-worded the First Amendment and found that most respondents would oppose having it put into law.  I can't find the link now either, sorry.
