There was a survey taken in 1982 and when asked 44% of Americans believed in creationism and 47% in a form of evolution. In a recent poll , the evolutionist has held steady at 47% while creationism has seen a ever-so-slight gain to 46%. That's not much of a shift, but perhaps a surprising one.
As one might expect, religious Americans heavily favor creationism 67% to 27%. Irreligious Americans are the opposite, favoring evolution 64% to 25%. While this breakdown of the numbers might not be surprising, it does show that one's view of our origin is strongly tied to one's view of God. We will attempt to uncover questions many have regarding this topic.
