    I know polls about evolution have been on this site before, but this one is more comprehensive than 'yes,' 'no,' or 'maybe.'

    What is the reason so few people have wanted to vote in this poll?

    It's an overly-discussed topic?
    Everyone is extremely obstinate and no one bends an inch?
    You're afraid to listen to those with an opposing POV?
    The topic is regarded-- faithfully or fallaciously-- as a 'test' of belief in the Bible?
    There is no 'conflict' between the 2 main POV's, so you hate getting involved in such heated disagreements?
    It is one of my polls with wordy answers (which is because of the stringent limit on how long the questions can be)?

    Because it is to long. People want something short and easy to vote in so they can do it a work before the boss catches them.

    I agree. I kind of like the yes/no ones. Even a yes, but . . ./ and a no, but . . . would be helpful.

    Thank goodness you could choose more than one option!

    Question #2 had insufficient options for theistic evolutionists.

    If evolution is true then one of these days... [​IMG]

    Darwin wasn't even close to being the first to propose evolution.

    Isa 14:13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
    Isa 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
