IT'S DARWINISM WE ALL DENY, NOT EVOLUTION:
Belief in God doesn't undermine evolution (Eli Federman, December 31, 2013, USA Today)
Genesis is an evolutionary tale, just not a Darwinian one.This week's survey by the Pew Research Center's Religion and Public Life Project shows that 60% of Americans believe that "humans and other living things have evolved over time." That means most Americans accept evolution.This also means that many of those who are religious and believe in God, also believe in evolution. [...][R]oughly 24% of adults said they believe "a supreme being guided the evolution of living things." And over 90% of Americans believe in God, which further reinforces that, to many, the belief in God is not incompatible with accepting evolution. Even 51% of scientists are reported to "believe in some form of deity or higher power."
