What Do the Educated Believe?

A recent poll reported by the Skeptical Inquirer seems to indicate that education fuels stronger belief in the paranormal. It demonstrates that higher levels of education consist of higher percentages of students that believe in things like ghosts, "haunted houses, psychics, telepathy, channeling and a host of other questionable ideas."

I just wonder if these are some of the same ones who also believe in evolution.

...on the other hand, while college students exhibit a level of literacy beyond most adults, they aren't as skilled as they ought to be.
