Views on Evolution Driven by Religion More Than Education

(RNS) As evolution remains a contentious issue for many public schools, a new survey suggests that views on the question are driven by Americans’ religious affiliation more than their level of education.

Overall, six in 10 Americans say that humans have evolved over time, while one-third reject the idea of human evolution, according to a new analysis by the Pew Research Center. The one-third of Americans who reject human evolution has remained mostly unchanged since a 2009 Pew survey.

About one in four American adults say that “a supreme being guided the evolution of living things for the purpose of creating humans and other life in the form it exists today.”

    As one who has witnessed a number of inexplicable miracles, I am quite certain God created the world of time, space and matter out of “nothing” and by the power of His Word!

    Without a Creator, it would not matter if anyone said it took trillions of years to become the complex place that just the earth and its inhabitants are, it is still impossible. Only God can produce something out of nothing and bring it to maturity in six 24 hour days.
