Pew Forum shows evangelical leaders divided over evolution


The leaders are divided on evolution. Slightly more reject the idea of evolution (47%) than believe in theistic evolution, the notion that God has used evolution for the purpose of creating humans and other life (41%). Few (3%) believe that human life has evolved solely by natural processes with no involvement from a supreme being.

Did the 3% understand the question?

Some wonder whether evangelical leaders should be asked less general questions, like "Do you believe that Adam and Eve were actual persons?" That's the divisive question just now, not pap about "evolution."
