Earth science

Dumb question in an Economist magazine poll:

Which do you think is more likely to be the correct explanation for the origin of the earth?
--The theory of evolution
--The account of creation as told in the Bible
--“Intelligent design” – evolution has happened but by intelligent design
--Not sure

There's a reason why Darwin's book was not called On the Origin of the Earth by Means of Natural Selection.

The poll is here (PDF).
