It was interesting to read Myers' response to this so called problem, which happened to be in agreement with what the authors of the study concluded. The solution to this dangerous problem of believing in a Creator is more education. In their minds these teachers who believe in creation would cease to believe in God if they had all the facts. After all we can't have people disagreeing with the powers that be.
Read what one commenter had to write:
In my opinion the 72% of biology teachers, who invoke magic to explain evolution, or deny evolution completely, should be fired immediately.
Sounds a little like Expelled to me. It is easy to see from reading the comments how their atheistic world view colors the way they look at science. To even suggest that a Creator had a hand in creation is blasphemy to the atheist scientist.
I look at this study and it confirms my belief that the greatest threat to the Church isn't militant atheism or the teaching of evolution, but the seduction of materialism. The vast majority of people will look at this world, even through the lens of science, and conclude that there is a God, but the things of this world keep those very same people from truly committing their lives to Him.
