    Young Earth Creationism is a fairly recent doctrine-most Evangelical Christians in the Victorian era were Old Earthers if not Theistic Evolutionists.

    The result for post-graduates is particularly frightening. This just re-enforces my view that humanity is simply not yet a sufficiently rational species to be in control of apocalyptic weaponry.
    Close observation may result in feelings of horror, wonder and awe at world you find yourself inhabiting.

    "Humans evolved, God guided process" compared to "Humans evolved, God had no part in process" simply means they are not confident atheists.

    I'm sorry, but I don't put much faith in these kinds of surveys. First of all, the USA Today is easily one of the most liberal news organizations in the country. Secondly, these surveys can be easily manipulated by selective call-screening, a process that no politically motivated news organization is above engaging in.

    Since I do not live in the USA I do not think will ever understand how one can complete any kind of education and still believe in any kind of Creationism.

    And it is disturbing that more education apparently only provides more polarized opinions, rather than a consensus based on science.

    It is very peculiar that the majority of Americans apparently try to have it both ways, believing that God created humanity but still left enough room for evolution. Perhaps this is how you construct a consensus when you believe that there are two contradicting, but equally valid opinions? It is perhaps an attempt at constructing some artificial neutrality that keeps your religious belief compatible with some concept of living in a world of science?
