Our take: With religion in the limelight, a new Gallup poll shows where the general American public believes humans came from.
SALT LAKE CITY — A new Gallup poll shows 46 percent of Americans believe in creationism, or that God created human beings in their present form.
Pollsters asked participants which of three options for human creation best matched their views on the origin and development of human beings.
Forty six percent of those polled believe in creationism, 32 percent believe in theistic evolution and 15 percent believe in evolution without any divine intervention.
