AOL is running several polls on Bush’s recent statements — they seem more shocked by the fact that he didn’t believe the bible was literally true than that he doubted evolution. Anyway, have fun, but keep in mind that these are polls that are heavily trafficked so we probably won’t make that big a dent…but let’s shift ’em our way as much as we can.
Here are the four polls and their results so far:
Do you believe the Bible is literally true?
How close are George W. Bush’s views on religion to your views?
Not at all 41%
Not sure 10%
Which explanation about the origins of life on Earth do you believe in?
Intelligent design 13%
None of the above 6%
Do you think Bush’s religious views affected his policies as president?
Yes, and that bothered me 39%
Yes, and that’s fine 35%
If you would like an easier poll to roll over, here’s another on a different site:
What’s Your View of Evolution and Creationism?
God created heaven, the Earth and all life in six days. Evolution explains nothing. 4% (10 votes)
Evolution and creationism are compatible. 20% (46 votes)
Evolution makes creationism very unlikely. 11% (24 votes)
Evolution explains life. Creationism is just a primitive story. 65% (146 votes)
It’s a science site rather than AOL, which explains why the results so far are much more sensible.
