47% of Americans Hold to Creationist View
A recent Gallup Poll found that the greatest number of Americans (47% of those expressing an opinion) hold to the strict creationist view, that God created man pretty much in his present form within the last 10, 000 years. Most other Americans believe in some combination of evolution and creationism. Only nine percent of Americans believe in strict evolution, yet this is the view that is expressed in the text books in our public schools.
