Survey: Nearly half of Americans subscribe to creationist view of human origins

By Dan Merica, CNN

(CNN) - Forty-six percent of Americans believe that God created humans in their present form at one point within the past 10,000 years, according to a survey released by Gallup on Friday.

That number has remained unchanged for the past 30 years, since 1982, when Gallup first asked the question on creationism versus evolution. Thirty years ago, 44% of the people who responded said they believed that God created humans as we know them today - only a 2-point difference from 2012.

"Despite the many changes that have taken place in American society and culture over the past 30 years, including new discoveries in biological and social science, there has been virtually no sustained change in Americans' views of the origin of the human species since 1982," wrote Gallup's Frank Newport. "All in all, there is no evidence in this trend of a substantial movement toward a secular viewpoint on human origins."

The second most common view is that humans evolved with God's guidance - a view held by 32% of respondents. The view that humans evolved with no guidance from God was held by 15% of respondents.

Survey: U.S. Protestant pastors reject evolution, split on Earth's age

Not surprisingly, more religious Americans are more likely to be creationists.

Nearly 70% of respondents who attend church every week said that God created humans in their present form, compared with 25% of people who seldom or never attend church.

Among the seldom church-goers, 38% believe that humans evolved with no guidance from God.

The numbers also showed a tendency to follow party lines, with nearly 60% of Republicans identifying as creationists, while 41% of Democrats hold the same beliefs.

Republicans also seem to be more black-and-white about their beliefs, with only 5% responding that humans evolved with some help from God. That number is much lower than the 19% of both independents and Democrats.

According to Newport, a belief in creationism is bucking the majority opinion in the scientific community - that humans evolved over millions of years.

"It would be hard to dispute that most scientists who study humans agree that the species evolved over millions of years, and that relatively few scientists believe that humans began in their current form only 10,000 years ago without the benefit of evolution," writes Newport. "Thus, almost half of Americans today hold a belief ... that is at odds with the preponderance of the scientific literature."

The USA Today/Gallup telephone poll was conducted May 10-13 with a random sample of 1,012 American adults. The sampling error is plus or minus 4 percentage points.

    Holy mother of God no wonder there is a viable repblicon party. If people are STILL so stupid that they don;t understand the most basic principles of science and the most fundamnetal underlying principles of biology it is small wonder they can be led around by their noses like so many empty eyed sheep.

    I heard it is possible to cure christianity and the christianity lifestyle because christianity is not genetic. Does anyone on this forum know whether that is true or not? I am desperate and depressed and have asked everyone I know and everyone they know if anyone knows how to cure my christianity. Are there any therapists you know of? Is anyone working on a vaccine where I might be able to get into a clinical trial? Please get back to me if you have any information that might help.

      Christianity is not the same thing as being an emoty headed creationist. Christian philosophers have found nothing incompatible between Biblical revelation and evolution since the 19th century. It is just those who are so amazingly benighted that they think a compilation of 33 seperate books written by even more authors for different reasons and different audiences in different literary styles, spanning a 500-700 period in history and compiled in the 4th century into a single text is somehow the same thing as a modern science book.

      B4, apparently you need to take a "reading for comprehension" class. I never said that believers did not advance science. Did the answer Sir Newton come up with state that "Things fall because God did it"? If not, then my statement still applies.

      June 1, 2012 at 8:46 pm |
    • except for all the Christians who were scientists

      Newton did and Einstein did as well. Einstein said of relativity was wrong the all mighty God was wrong because he gathered his theory by examining Gods work.

      June 1, 2012 at 8:48 pm |
    • Gadflie

      Ok, some of you seem to have trouble comprehending a simple statement. Let me give you a few examples.
      When Newton saw that probably mythical apple fall, did he just say "God did it" and let it go at that?
      When Pasteur noticed those pesky germs spreading, did he settle for "God did it" as the answer?
      I can go on and on but hopefully that will be sufficient. The idea that "God did it" has been used for a placeholder until an actual explanation is found. But, "God did it" has NEVER actually been found to be the correct answer to anything.

      June 1, 2012 at 8:50 pm |
    • Gadflie

      Except, Einstein actually described himself as an agnostic. I suspect that he knew best what his own beliefs were.

      June 1, 2012 at 8:50 pm |
    • 7 Headed lampstand

      They have a point - Newton and the great scientists of the Enlightenment were trying to discover God's rules for the universe. Not to reject the idea of god but to be able to use knowledge of those rules to better human life. Same with political philosophers like Locke and monestque and hume. However, it is also correctto say that they would not accept the answer "BECAUSE THE CHURCH SAYS SO." A big big fundamental difference. the sheeple who don;t understand biology are being told by the CHRUCH that Darwin is a fairy tale but that Genisis should be read as a science textbook. And they accept it. Unlike the great minds of history and of today.

      June 1, 2012 at 9:24 pm |
    • James

      How can you say that though with such conviction when there is absolutely no scientific proof to state that prayer does change things? Don't get me wrong in times of desperation I'm willing to try anything including prayer but no one can ever say with complete conviction that prayer is what turns things around. And if we are to credit prayer and God with things working out, then are we also to blame God when prayers are not answered? Nobody says, "Well, it was God's plan" when some little three year old is tortured by her own parents and killed ruthlessly. It's not fair to credit prayer and God with success and then proceed to ignore the fact that the Trade Centers fell, and people had to jump 1300 feet up in the air in the worst act of desperation imaginable. I have such a hard time believing that a loving God would submit people to the terrible decision of not whether they would die, but whether they would die by burning up or jumping to their death 1/4 of a mile up in the air. I also cannot reconcile in my mind how a loving God would submit non-believers (no matter how great, humble, loving and caring these non-believers may have been on earth) to burn ETERNALLY in hell. That word bothers me. It's one thing for someone to be cast into hell because they were a serial killer or molested kids or something, but for a kind and gentle soul to be given the same punishment as a murderer, burning ETERNALLY in hell, seems anything but the act of a loving God. The kindest, most caring, loyal and amazing people I've met have been non-believers. So what makes these folks so bad as to warrant burning ETERNALLY in hell? While some of the most hateful, judgmental, ignorant hate-mongers I've ever met have been evangelical types. Something here is amiss.

      Evolution is not something a person believes in. You either accept it or you don't. And you can choose to not believe it, if you feel that being ignorant is something that you are comfortable with.

      Some brief instruction as to how god failed in his business because of where and when he opened his business:

      God started his business in the middle of the world’s largest desert – among a group of illiterate and wandering tribes. God did this in spite of the fact that there were much larger civilizations already thriving in India and China. In both India and China, there were already very large cities and the civilization was already mostly literate in that the populations could read and write.

      If god had launched his business in either of these two cultures, he would have gained a much larger global market share and obtained an insurmountable market share vs. Islam as an example. As it is, Islam started +/- 700 years AFTER Christianity and has now overtaken Christianity in global market share. Islam remains the fasted growing organized religious strain in the world. (Atheism, however is the fasted growing segment of the overall religious business landscape). So, not only did god blow a 700 year head-start, he also arranged for the mur_der of his one and only forever son in the middle of the same desert and among the same group of illiterate wandering goat herders for crying out loud. That was a huge mistake on top of the earlier huge mistakes and meant that god sacrificed his Return On Investment (ROI) and eventual market share dominance by this very short-sighted set of decisions. Look where his business is today. It is losing customers faster than it can replace them by acquiring new ones; the business is in disrepute among many of its long-time customers; it is losing actual raw numbers of customers in some parts of the world where it used to be the only option; its customers are being mur_dered in many other parts of the world for simply being his customers – it’s a real mess. So, I’d suggest anyone starting a similar new business avoid these mistakes so that the mur_der you planned for your only son and then performed so that you could later use as a recruiting tool/story might actually produce a higher ROI for you than it did for god.

      It seems to encourage you to try to sway schools to teach children the same beliefs you have. The problem with that for America, is that while the Chinese are teaching their tens of millions of students modern science, 48% of Americans would seem to prefer leaving American children in the scientific middle ages, fighting rather than embracing the scientific community and all of the amazing advances over the past few decades ...and that's frightening for the future prospects of this nation and our ability to compete in the future.

    How can the devoutly religious Creationists believe firmly in "Intelligent Design", while disregarding the possibility that if a Divine Being did intend for things to happen in an ordered way, truths would've been revealed to Man through Science (and Science would've come to exist) for a reason? You can trust Science and still believe in God and believe that we can't measure what is "beyond" our ability of or right to, understanding.

    Science is a tool. It's a tool, it's something humans made as a reliable way of examining the World around us and establishing some bity of predictablity in how we approach it and prepare. Acceptance of its legitimacy for this purpose, does not require an abandonment of religious belief. I would imagine God would be very angry with those humans who continue destroying this Earth - instead of acting as a responsible steward of it - and hurting others, ignoring Science as an excuse for sloth and greed.

      Science is a farce ... the latest example of it was the idea of global warming. Just google "global warming" and "scam" and see it for yourself.

      God requires us to accept him on faith. That is really the only thing he asks of us. As Jesus said, you must approach God with the faith of a little child.

    Christianity:
    The belief that an invisible cosmic Jewish zombie can make you live forever if you eat his flesh, drink his blood, and telepathically tell him you accept him as your Master, so that he will remove an evil force from your soul which was put there because a woman made from a rib was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree.

      "Atheism: The belief that there was nothing and nothing happened to nothing and then nothing magically exploded for no reason, creating everything and then a bunch of everything magically rearranged itself for no reason what so ever into self-replicating bits which then turned into dinosaurs. Makes perfect sense."

      I'm not atheist, I believe there was a sentient being that spawned the big bang, but I also don't subscribe to any dogmatic religious beliefs... atheism is just as ret@rded as the Abrahamic religions.

      Yes, because your "loving creator" is so "loving" that he enjoys torturing people for eternity, merely because they want some proof that he exists, as opposed to some other deity, or no deity at all. Such a "loving" creator would not deserve my respect, much less my worship.

      June 1, 2012 at 8:49 pm |

      How 'loving' can that creator be if he's going to subject me to an 'eternity of torment' for simply using the brain he bestowed me with?

      He's not gonna enjoy anyone suffering throughout eternity. But it is what it is. Good cannot exist with non-good in eternity, so something's gotta give.

      Not really. All I'm saying is that while I believe in spirits in the metaphorical sense, I don't believe that there is something occupying my body that is like a ghost. Should I believe leprechauns because no one can prove they don't exist?

      June 1, 2012 at 8:53 pm |

      If God has created the universe he must be outside of what he has created thus he cannot be seen with the biological eye. Sounds pretty simple to me. Faith is the only means by which supernatural realities can be understood. To me, they are real. been living in Africa for a while and seen weird stuff which only confirmed my faith.

      I have seen people gathering and worshiping the spirits of their ancestors. Then some very weird presence filled the room and a pot on the floor (fetish) started to move by itself and sparks flying around. I checked the pot later: no battery included.

      I'm not an atheist. I believe in a universal creator... But I would be disgusted to spend eternity in the presence of an "All Knowing" being who condones slavery, abuse of women, stoning of his creation, favoritism over certain people.

      I would be disgusted to share an afterlife with the psychotic "god" who claims to have pure love for his creations yet is perfectly capable of torturing his creation for eternity because they didn't worship him.

      The creator of our universe does not desire worship. The creator of our universe desires spiritual evolution (oops y'all don't understand what evolution means) and for us to channel our creators love and spread it to other living creatures.

      The god of the abrahamic religions is psychotic. If your brain hasn't been rotted by a lifetime of religion and you still have an ounce of logic in your brain you could see that it's impossible for the god of the bible to exist.

      Talking snakes? Worldwide floods? Trumpets collapsing the walls of a town? Reviving from the dead? Walking on water? Alchemy? Murdering the entire earth's population? Slavery is okay? Women are inferior to men? There is a secret garden on Earth with a magic tree in it?

      It's perfectly okay to believe that a higher power created our magnificent universe but take a step back and look at the bible from a different perspective. Why does magic never happen in the modern age? Why are the only miracles limited to jesus popping up on toast?

      I believe that Jesus existed as did Siddhartha Gautama and Muhammad (pboh) and countless other spiritually advanced men but there was nothing special about them. They were men who shut their eyes, looked within their own mind and discovered that god is within all of us.

      I challenge any religious person to google each of the following:
      1. we are god
      2. why won't god heal amputee's
      3. proof the christian god is impossible
      4. anything else you think may challenge your brain

      Why won't some people look it up? Well like Jack Nicholson's character said "YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!"

    And how many people out there believe that Creationism is a scientific theory and not some Trojan Horse to indoctrinate children to believe in a falsehood? I'd really like to know how it scientific.

      There's actually a creationism museum near where I live. It depicts humans and dinosaurs living together, no joke. You'd think something so stupid couldn't manage to survive in a bad economy, but this article explains that.

      Rockhound, that museum sounds terrible and terribly funny at the same time. I'd like to visit just to laugh.
