PRINCETON, NJ — Forty-six percent of Americans believe in the creationist view that God created humans in their present form at one time within the last 10,000 years. The prevalence of this creationist view of the origin of humans is essentially unchanged from 30 years ago, when Gallup first asked the question. About a third of Americans believe that humans evolved, but with God’s guidance; 15% say humans evolved, but that God had no part in the process.
– “In U.S., 46% Hold Creationist View of Human Origins,” Gallup, June 1, 2012
So after thirty years of Darwinist claptrap only 15% of the population believes it? We need to start a fund to help them!
More broadly, some 78% of Americans today believe that God had a hand in the development of humans in some way, just slightly less than the percentage who felt this way 30 years ago.
All in all, there is no evidence in this trend of a substantial movement toward a secular viewpoint on human origins.
Just think … we could introduce the 78% to convergent evolution, lateral gene transfer, epigenetics, stasis – all the stuff that’s real, and zero court-enforced Darwin claptrap.
