New Poll says 4 in 10 Americans Believe in Strict Creationism

We no longer can afford to debate the validity of science like evolution that is as commonly accepted as the theory of gravity or heliocentricity.

A new Gallup Poll released last week says that 40% of Americans believe in a strict creationist view of the world in which evolution did not take place and God created humans in their present form about 10,000 years ago. Among those who did not fall into that category, 38% believe that evolution did take place, but was guided by a higher power and 16% believe human life evolved without the involvement of any kind of deity.
