Is Belief in Creation Fading?

A 2017 Gallup poll shows a decline in the number of Americans who profess belief in special creation without Darwin. A significant number believe that God had a hand in particles-to-propagandist evolution, and then there are those who believe in atheistic evolutionism. Does this reflect reality?

While any poll can be suspect since we're not given many details, let's just assume that Gallup is being it's reputable self and the results are on the level. Biblical creationists would rightly ask why this is happening. There are several reasons, including the liberalization of Christianity, laziness in Christians regarding learning the truth of creation and teaching their children, peer pressure, and more.

Additional reasons for the fading belief in creation include, bluntly, persecution in academia and the secular establishment. Creationary students have been advised to keep their beliefs quiet until they get the degrees, and possibly the jobs, that they want. Professors tend to be not only leftists, but vehement misotheist bullies who seek to destroy the faith of students. Even teachers who believe in creation have to get out of Dodge; the author of the main article linked below, Dr. Jerry Bergman, was fired for his creationary beliefs and has written books about the struggles of other creationists.

The scientific and logical evidence supports biblical creation, but ideologues in educational power (coupled with lazy, compromising Christians) exert pressure on students who can leave home as believers and come back as atheists! Creation science is streng verboten, as is Intelligent Design, and fundamentalist Darwinists control the propaganda. Evolutionism is presented, but not any of the flaws. Only the sanitized propaganda is given.

Darwinism is the prevailing viewpoint in many nations, and the United States is following the trail ridden by highly secularized (as well as socialist and communist) countries elsewhere. Evolution is not to be criticized, or  Darwin's Flying Monkeys© will get you fired and probably burn a dumpster in front of your house just for the fun of it. My exaggeration on the dumpster part is only slight, but reflects the anger and fear of losing control in the secular science industry and academia — as well as trolling the internet. The truth is on our side, but they have control and an efficient propaganda machine and aren't afraid to use it to indoctrinate people.
A new Gallup poll shows, for the first time since the poll on this subject began, “a notable decline in the percentage of Americans — including Christians — who hold to the ‘Young Earth’ creationist view that humankind was created in its present form in the past 10,000 years, evolution playing no part.” According to the poll, taken in May, the portion of the American public taking the creation position now stands at 38%. Furthermore, fifty-seven percent accept the “scientific consensus that human beings evolved from less advanced forms of life over millions of years.” The poll reveals the largest factor in the shift is the jump in the number of Christians who see evolution as God’s way of creating life on Earth and continuing to shape it today.

A poll shows that Americans are becoming more like other secularized nations, accepting Darwinism and rejecting special creation in increasing numbers. Although truth, logic, and science are on our side, why is this happening?
