Newest Gallup Poll: Rejection Of Biblical Creator-God At All Time High In America
A record-low percentage of U.S. adults believe that God created humans in their present form, according to a Gallup survey. Thirty-eight percent accept the strict creationism view compared with 38 percent who believe man developed with God’s guidance and 19 percent think God had no role in man’s evolution, according to the Gallup poll. “Since the Scopes Monkey Trial more than 90 years ago, the inclusion of creationism — and evolution — as part of public school curricula has been an ongoing and contentious topic,” Gallup’s Art Swift said. “This push and pull with creationism will undoubtedly continue, as this debate about where humans came from rages on.” Respondents’ views varied depending on their amount of education. Among those who believe in creationism, 21 percent have a postgraduate education versus 48 percent who have no more than a high school diploma. Among those who believe in evolution without God’s involvement, 31 percent are postgrads versus 12 percent who have a high school education or less.
