A new poll indicates that only one in five Americans believe in evolution without the guidance of God, while a majority at 62 percent believe God played some role in human creation.
The results come from a recent YouGov poll, which was conducted among 1,000 participants in the U.S. from July 8 to 9 and questioned peoples’ views on the origins of humans.
The poll asked the question “Which of the following statements comes closest to your views on the origin of human beings,” with 21 percent answering “Human beings evolved from less advanced life forms over millions of years, and God did not directly guide this process.”
A total of 62 percent answered that God had a hand in human creation, with only 27 percent saying “Human [beings] evolved from less advanced life forms over millions of years, but God guided this process.”
In addition, 55 percent said, “God created human beings in their present form within the last ten thousand years.”
