More Americans Believe in Angels, Hell than Evolution

According to a new Harris Poll of over 2000 adult Americans, more believe in Hell and angels than in the theory of Evolution. While some 80% say they believe in God (no change since 2005), well over 70% said they also believe in the existence of Hell and angels. Only 47% believe in Darwin's theory of Evolution - though that is slightly higher than those who believe in Creationism (40%). Interestingly, Catholics are more likely to believe in Creationism than Protestants.

The new nationwide poll brings to light several interesting results, including the fact that 44% believe in ghosts and 36% in UFOs. You can find the actual data on Harris' site.
