HM asked a question last night about an article that gets passed around, and in the article it misrepresents some stats on how people believe in creation/evolution. I mentioned the real results of the study, and how they are twisted by the article, and several people jumped in suggesting the stats I gave were incorrect. The reasoning - if the majority of Americans self-identify as Christian, the numbers I provided (35% evolution, 35% don't care, 25% creation) must be fabricated.
Now obviously, the numbers I gave are not fabricated (links following), but it does bring up a question - if the majority are Christian and the majority do not believe in creation, how is that reconciled?

Many Christians believe in a Creator guided evolution, so if they are asked they will say they believe in evolution. If I was surveyed I would have answered that I believe in evolution. I believe God created the world through the design of evolution.
