42 Percent of Americans think that "living things have existed in their present form since the beginning of time."|
On average, only 1.23% of nucleotide bases differ between chimps and humans.
I honestly wonder what drives 4 out of 10 Americans to reject fundamental scientific facts. I don't even think you can find in the Bible anywhere that says that you must take everything in the Bible as literal truth, and even a lot of committed Christians recognize that Genesis is metaphorical.
