A new Gallup poll shows slightly fewer Americans believe in creationism today than in the past.

According to the results of a new Gallup poll, 40% of Americans believe that God created humans approximately 10,000 years ago in their present form. 38% believe God participated in the evolution of humans from less advanced forms of life, and 16% believe humans were created strictly by evolution with no involvement from God at all. The number of Americans who believe in strict creationism is the lowest number in Gallup's history of asking the question, down from 47% in 1999. - reposted from Churchleaders.com

Whilst I'm not one to criticise someone for doing something differently from me, I do think they should've linked to the poll. Anyhoo, google found it and the question seems above aboard. There was also a rather interesting graph that tracked how people have answered over the past few years - I find it interesting that the only real change is with those holding to either strict creationism or strict evolution; the more liberal "God guided evolution" remaining largely unchanged. Not what I'd expect given all the hype I hear about the growing liberalism amongst Christians.

Great question! Not sure Adam. Just saw the article and thought it was noteworthy.

What were the questions asked? I've seen surveys in the past where a peculiar phrasing might've mixed up the results somewhat.
