    Well, let's say any one of the subset of those who had evolution taught to them *properly*
    in school and who also remember what they were taught. As Curtis points out, many
    graduates of secondary school education, even those going on to major in biology, don't
    obtain a really solid understanding of the theory of evolution until they reach
    university. This doesn't surprise me, because in my experience it is true of most subjects.
