    "I have opponents in this race who do not want to change the Constitution," Huckabee told a Michigan audience on Monday. "But I believe it's a lot easier to change the Constitution than it would be to change the word of the living god. And that's what we need to do -- to amend the Constitution so it's in God's standards rather than try to change God's standards so it lines up with some contemporary view."

    A presidential candidate can fudge with intelligent design, which is the message of that poll, but an avowed creationist won't survive as a candidate.

    Even though I pointed out that the POTUS who left office 6 years ago was an avowed creationist? You do know that the majority of the country still identifies as Christian right?

    GWB took refuge in the intelligent design dodge, which avoids the creationist pitfall.

    I would not actually call this a "dodge" but you are free to.

    "Creationism also gets a Bush nod. . . . the candidate says, "I'm not a scientist, but it seems to me that the Bible has an abundance of clues and evidence to help archeologists, astronomers and other scientists in their endless quest for knowledge. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if the Biblical account of creation and the scientific evidence of the origins of the universe will yet find common ground (Boston, 1988, p. 10).

    The Institute for Creation Research

    So you are or are not aware the majority of Americans still identify as Christians? You seem to be be playing fast and loose with what you do and do not know, from post to post.

    I have seen the figures on American beliefs enough to have a pretty good grip on them, thanks. As for GWB's 1988 statement, it leaves enough wiggle room to avoid trouble. It's also deep enough in the past to be devalued.
