Newsweek-March 30, 2007 - A belief in God and an identification with an organized religion are widespread throughout the country, according to the latest NEWSWEEK poll. Nine in 10 (91 percent) of American adults say they believe in God and almost as many (87 percent) say they identify with a specific religion. Christians far outnumber members of any other faith in the country, with 82 percent of the poll’s respondents identifying themselves as such. Another 5 percent say they follow a non-Christian faith, such as Judaism or Islam. Nearly half (48 percent) of the public rejects the scientific theory of evolution; one-third (34 percent) of college graduates say they accept the Biblical account of creation as fact. Seventy-three percent of Evangelical Protestants say they believe that God created humans in their present form within the last 10,000 years; 39 percent of non-Evangelical Protestants and 41 percent of Catholics agree with that view.
"...one-third (34 percent) of college graduates say they accept the Biblical account of creation as fact..." -- None that I've ever met! Half reject Darwin's theory? Didn't they ever see Inherit the Wind? Who doesn't believe Spencer Tracy?
Immediately two things come to mind:
1. The people cited in the above poll are eligible to vote.
2. God isn't concerned with who believes in his existence or not. That one-tenth who don't believe in him can sleep easier knowing this.
