According to an Angus Reid poll, 61% of Canadians and 69% of Britons believe in Charles Darwin's theory of evolution.
Just 30% of Americans, however, share that view. More than half of Americans (51%) believe God created humankind fewer than 10,000 years ago. Just 22% of Canadians and 17% of Britons agree.
There are deeper regional divides when it comes to beliefs about where human life came from. In Canada, Quebecers are the most likely to believe in evolution (71%) while Albertans are the least likely (48%).
In the U.S., folks in the northeast are most likely to side with science (37%) while those in the south are the least likely to accept the theory of evolution (24%).
Angus Reid polled 1,002 Americans, 2,101 Britons and 1,510 Canadians in the fall and summer of 2012, with margins of error of 3.1, 2.2 and 2.5 percentage points, respectively.
