The Creation Museum and the theory of Young Earth creationism are widely reviled by the broader science community.In a YouTube video posted last year titled « Creationism Is Not Appropriate For Children, » Bill Nye the Science Guy slammed creationism, imploring parents not to teach it to their children. « We need scientifically literate voters and taxpayers for the future, » he said. « We need engineers that can build stuff and solve problems. »For the past 30 years, Gallup Inc. has been tracking American opinions about creationism.In June 2012, Gallup’s latest findings showed that 46% of Americans believed in creationism, 32% believed in evolution guided by God, and 15% believed in atheistic evolution.
