WASHINGTON — Eight out of 10 Americans believe God guided creation in some capacity, according to a Gallup Poll. The Washington Times reported that 46 percent think God created man in his present form sometime in the past 10,000 years, while 36 percent say man developed over millions of years from lesser life forms with God guiding the process. Only 13 percent of Americans think humans evolved with no divine intervention. In one of the most interesting findings of the survey, Gallup found that 56 percent of Republicans, compared with only 43 percent of Democrats, said God created humans in their present form.
