Most Americans do not accept the theory of evolution. Instead, 51 percent of Americans say God created humans in their present form[.]
Americans most likely to believe in only evolution are liberals (36 percent), those who rarely or never attend religious services (25 percent), and those with a college degree or higher (24 percent).
White evangelicals (77 percent), weekly churchgoers (74 percent) and conservatives (64 percent), are mostly likely to say God created humans in their present form.
I wonder if these numbers would change if the question were shifted to focus upon animals as opposed to humans? I'm going to guess that a higher number of Americans would accept that those mere animals adapt and evolve, but that we mighty humans (read: non-animals) were created as-is. Any thoughts?
