That 16% figure is up nine percent from 1982, Gallup reports in a new poll.
The poll found that 40% believed " the "creationist" view that God created humans as is 10,000 years ago." That's the lowest percentage since they started polling. IN 1999, 47% believed the creationist theory.
Gallup also reported that t hirty-eight percent believe God guided a process by which humans developed over millions of years from less advanced life forms.
