     From 1974 to 1983... polled 2100 students at 41 colleges and
universities across the country.

     Nearly 45 percent of those surveyed said they believed that fossil
records were the remains of animals that died in the Flood.

     38 percent believed man originated in the Garden of Eden.

     Almost 10 percent of students from the South believed Earth
was created less than 6000 years ago in 4004 BC.

     52 percent of students who hail from the southwest agreed that
the origin of human life is best explained by creation by God as in
Genesis.  Only 15 percent of students from the East held this.

     45 percent polled agreed that some races are more evolved
than others.
