In a recent poll, about 21% of those polled said that they believe in Darwin’s view of evolution: no God directed it. About 17% were not sure. The rest believed that God created life all by Himself, or else He directed evolution.
CBS News reports that a YouGov poll in early July found that 37% think that human beings were created in the last 10,000 years. God created mankind. From the point of view of Darwinism, these people are hopeless.
Then another 25% said they believed that God directed the evolution of mankind. These are the “intelligent design” folks. These days, Darwinists hate them more than they hate creationists. Darwin was reacting against intelligent design, not creationism, in 1859. Intelligent design was the reigning view in England. Today, 40% of Americans think intelligent design should be taught in tax-funded schools — twice as many as believe in Darwinism.
More Americans favor creationism — the hard-core kind — being taught in tax-funded schools than those who oppose. Furthermore, 40% believe that intelligent design should be taught in public schools, compared to 32% who oppose this.
The Darwinists have controlled tax-funded education, K-12, for half a century. They have controlled higher education for over a century. After spending all this tax money, they have persuaded one-fifth of the public.
This does not say much for either Darwininsm or tax-funded education.
