Did anybody notice anything odd about the poll that Denyse refers to?  Look at the results:

A.    Evolution, that is, the idea that human beings developed over millions of years from less advanced forms of life

Definitely true | probably true | all the rest of the responses
    18                   35                  blah

B.    Creationism, that is, the idea that God created human beings pretty much in their present form at one time within the last 10,000 years

Definitely true | probably true | all the rest of the responses
    39                   27                  blah

So 18+35 or 53 percent of all Americans believe that "human beings developed over millions of years from less advanced forms of life" and 39 + 27 or  66% believe that "God created human beings pretty much in their present form at one time within the last 10,000 years"

That seems to indicate that 13% of Americans believe both!
