"Almost half of all Americans believe that humans were specially created in their present form by God at some point in the past 10,000 years or so. Over three-quarters of Americans believe that God was involved in the origin and development of humans, one way or another. Only 15% of Americans accept that humans evolved naturally, without any supernatural or divine intervention.
The number of Young Earth Creationists isn't the highest it's ever been, but it's higher than it was last year — and since the 30 year average of Gallup polls which have asked this question is 45% for Young Earth Creationism, the numbers are effectively unchanged. This is despite the great strides that have been made over the years in biology, archeology, and other scientific fields."
