About 40% of Americans believe in the biblical version of the origin of the world

According to P. Braterman


They also believe that living things are the result of "special creation" and not the evolution of species. And that the Great Flood, which only Noah and his companions could survive, caused geological deposits that can be observed, for example, in the Grand Canyon (modern science believes that these deposits accumulated for millions of years).
Such beliefs stem from the doctrine of Bible infallibility, which has long been considered an integral part of the faith of numerous evangelical and Baptist churches around the world.
However, some researchers see in the modern creationist movement a new conspiracy theory that builds a parallel universe with its own organizations and rules of proof, and argues that the scientific establishment promoting evolution is an arrogant and morally corrupt elite. From the point of view of new creationists, the scientific elite seek to monopolize academic employment and research grants in order to deny divine authority.
However, putting creationism in the category of conspiracy theories like QAnon is fraught with the political repression that polarized American society is prone to today.
