Evolutionism has nothing to do with atheists. Although a small minority may be atheist, most believers of Evolution in America are Christian. Percentage wise: atheists on a whole are less than 5% to 10% of this country and near 100% of them are 'Evolutionists'. Christians make up over 80% of this country and at least 28% are 'Evolutionists'.[] So that means over 73% of evolutionists are Christian! (The actual number is much higher because 28% is for 'evangelical protestants', other denominations have closer to 50% belief in evolution).

- Your analysis is interesting but misses the role played by leadership, funding, activism, etc. The atheists are the pro-evolution activists, censoring any criticism of the theory in school, government agencies (e.g., Grand Canyon), university programs, etc. Richard Dawkins, the leading advocate of evolution, is an outspoken atheist, for example. No surprise there.
- Less than 10% of Christians accept evolution as it is taught in school, as confirmed by polls (e.g., Gallup poll). The Catholic Church (1 billion people) prohibits teaching evolution as it is taught in school, whereby a single ancestor (Adam) for all of man is denied. Evangelical Christians are even more opposed to evolution.--Aschlafly 18:53, 23 February 2007 (EST)
