God beats evolution in new poll

A new CBS poll conducted found that the majority believe God had something to do with the creation of man, rather than evolution alone.

According to the survey, "51 percent say God created humans in their present form, and another three in 10 say that while humans evolved, God guided the process. Just 15 percent say humans evolved, and that God was not involved."
AOL also conducted a similar, unscientific poll, which found out that “With 105,000 respondents, 70 percent said yes, while 30 percent said no” in response to the question "Is it possible to believe in both God and evolution?"

Even though the majority acknowledge God in the role of creation, it seems that several want to be equal opportunity and not choose one way or the other, so they include belief in God and in evolution (which I assume to be macroevolution, the changing of one species to another) rather than take a definite stand. Still it seems encouraging that fewer people than expected buy into evolution alone, apparently realizing that there are some difficulties with the theory.

Even so, it seemed that there were some differences of opinion on the AOL message board. As a couple of comments show some differing views:

"How can anyone disagree with evolution with so much evidence out there?" asked one AOL user in an associated messageboard. "I don't see any evidence of how God got here."

"Did God create liberals?" asks another. "No. Liberals clearly evolved, by accident, from apes. Dumb apes. The average American liberal shows no hint of intelligent design. No wonder liberals are pro-Darwin."
