Canadians Choose Evolution Over Creationism

Angus Reid says so. Phew!

Polling Data

Which of these statements comes closest to your own point of view regarding the origin and development of human beings on earth?

Human beings evolved from less advanced life forms over millions of years: 58%

God created human beings in their present form within the last 10,000 years: 22%

Not sure: 20%

And it is not a question about whether you can shoehorn evolution into a Christian framework. The question is about where did we come from. Some of those 58% may be Christians, but they would not be the scary sort of Christians that sometimes keep me up at night.
