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.

And we wonder why US students ranked 17th in science. My guess is 46% of the American kids froze when there wasn't a 'Goddidit' choice on the multiple choice questions. Or, maybe they were using the biblical value of pi, which is just 3, in all their calculations.
