In my latest edition of the Church Leader’s Report ( were included some interesting stats:

Americans & Darwin

Only 39% of American adults say they “believe in the theory of evolution.”

25% say they don’t believe in evolution, and another 36% don’t have an opinion either way.

78% of likely voters believe biology teachers should teach students the scientific evidence against evolution as well as the evidence for it.

80% of likely voters say “teachers and students should have the academic freedom to discuss both the strengths and weaknesses” of evolution.

44% of Americans believed God made humans “pretty much in their present form at one time within the last 10,000 years or so.”

Another 36% believed humans developed over millions of years from less advanced forms of life, with God guiding the process.
