Creation vs. evolution

It seems that the debate continues. (will it ever end?) Gallup released some numbers on a poll of Americans on the topic of Creation vs. Evolution. Guess what. It’s not as lopsided as you might think.

Some highlights. 7 in 10 Republicans believe in Creation. (Not exactly a surprise.) Nearly 40% believe that man developed with God’s help. Another 45% believe that God created man in it’s current form. Taken together, that’s 85% that believe God has a hand in it.

So, the question I pose to you is “why aren’t we allowed to teach creationism in schools”? Especially when nearly 50% of the people surveyed believe that the Creation story is true? If 50% of scientists believed that Gold came from leprechauns, you can bet it would get a mention in a textbook.
