Evolutionists in the Minority


Polls are of dubious value, and definitely aren't a measure of truth, but they can indicate whether a perception is something commonly accepted or if it's a minority or fringe view.

While neither creationists nor evolutionists have proof of their claims, the arrogant assertion by some that belief in creationism is a fringe superstition ascribed to by a handful of knuckle-draggers is, of course, bunk.

From NewsMax on a new USA Today/Gallup poll:

A new USA Today/Gallup Poll has found that two-thirds of Americans say creationism is definitely or probably true.

The poll also found that by a margin of more than 2-to-1 more Americans believe creationism is "definitely true” as opposed to those who believe as strongly in evolution.

Creationists and evolutionists both acknowledge and examine the same evidence, and both approach the study of that evidence with presuppositions about how it came to be. The main difference is that the creationist assumes the evidence was intelligently designed, where the evolutionist believes it came about through random chance. (That, and the fact that evolutionists religiously deny that they have any presuppositions.)

Saying that creationists don't believe in science is like saying that a person who looks at a computer application and assumes that a programmer coded it doesn't believe in computer programming.

That line of reasoning would require you to believe that just because you've never seen the people who built all the software currently running on your computer, that your software formed randomly and spontaneously, and just happened to produce a coherent, functional application.
