Increasing Numbers Want Equal Time for Creation

Proverbs 12:20
"Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil, but counselors of peace have joy."

A few years ago, a news release revealed the result of a poll on what Americans prefer to have taught in public schools about origins. The poll was done for an organization that favors a dogmatic teaching of evolution. The news release stated only that a huge majority of Americans, 83 percent, favor the teaching of evolution in the public schools. We at Creation Moments were led to investigate this poll more closely since this poll result runs contrary to other recent polls.

The professional polling organization polled 1,500 people about whether creation or evolution should be taught in the public schools. Indeed, 83 percent said they believe that the theory of evolution should be taught in the public schools. However, what was not included in the popular reporting of the poll was that 79 percent of those polled said that creation should also be taught in the schools. Only 20 percent of those polled felt that evolution only should be taught. Clearly, Americans prefer both creation and evolution presented to the students so that they can make up their own minds. Equally notable is that almost half of those polled agreed with the statement that evolution is "far from being proven to be scientific."

While the statement that 83 percent of those polled favor evolution being taught is true, it leaves out the most important part of the poll's findings. Clearly, ordinary people want to hear about God's creation.

Prayer: 
Dear Father, help us never to be deceived by the forces of darkness. Amen.
