According to a new Gallop Poll, 46% of Americans believe in the creationist view that “God created human beings pretty much in their present form at one time within the last 10,000 years or so” (“In U.S., 46% Hold Creationist View,” Gallup.com, June 1, 2012). This statistic remains essentially unchanged from 30 years ago, when Gallup first asked the question. About 32% of Americans believe in theistic evolution, while only 15% believe in atheistic evolution. 58% of Republicans believe in recent creation and 41% of Democrats.
