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.
I would assume that they mean Young Earth Creationists and not, say, like me… those that believe that God is involved, sovereign, and reigns throughout every minute detail of the creating process.
Interestingly, a majority of Republicans and those considered ‘uneducated’ are to be counted as YECers. It doesn’t take much math to figure out the correlation between all of this.
Scary world, out there.
Just hope that they don’t bring back witch trials.
