Forty-six percent of Americans believe in the creationist view that God created humans in their present form at one time within the last 10,000 years. The prevalence of this creationist view of the origin of humans is essentially unchanged from 30 years ago, when Gallup first asked the question. About a third of Americans believe that humans evolved, but with God’s guidance; 15% say humans evolved, but that God had no part in the process.

via In U.S., 46% Hold Creationist View of Human Origins.

An interesting phenomenon is that people who believe that man was created in his present form are increasing in number. The rise in literal creationists has risen in just the last couple of years.

    1. No, but thanks for the idea. I will look into it!

      I checked out your blog, very nice! The sunscreen post was cool, I just posted a recipe for making your own. Also liked the Borax post-I’ve used it to make my own laundry detergent. Your week-long veggie diet was interesting too. I’ve been thinking of doing that since watching Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. I will be exploring your blog in more depth soon:)
