Do most christians deny Evolution?

Catholics believe in evolution and make up the largest Christian denomination in the world. This means most Christians do not deny evolution.

Yes because they're brainwashed

It's always been my belief that, if God is a master engineer, and He would have to be to create a Universe, that He would have implemented a system of adaptability into the creatures He created.
We have engineers who design spacecraft that can adapt, so surely He would have done the same with His design.

Most no. It is a Bumpkin Cracker Science thing.

A Christian must believe what Jesus Christ believes. Jesus said:
4 In reply he said: “Have you not read that the one who created them from the beginning made them male and female 5 and said: ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and his mother and will stick to his wife, and the two will be one flesh’? 6 So that they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has yoked together, let no man put apart.”
He said created, not evolved. He spoke about the man and his wife, not less than that. Jesus also said:
John 8:31, 32
31 Then Jesus went on to say to the Jews who had believed him: “If you remain in my word, you are really my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Also, the inspired scriptures say:
"But let God be found true, though every man be found a liar.”
Most scientists who espouse macroevolution are either atheists or agnostics. This term, which is in many textbooks, teaches that small changes accumulated slowly over billions of years and produced the big changes needed to make fish into amphibians and apelike creatures into men.
Eighteenth-century scientist LaPlace said concerning the idea of God as Creator "I have no need for that hypothesis".
The bottom line is, no matter how you define it, evolution, in order to be true, has to at least hypothesize how space, matter, energy and forces, and life itself began. It is a lot more complicated than the idea of the Big Bang - in fact, where IT came from has to be answered in this universe where effects come from causes. There is also no inkling of how an unguided universe came up with the complex fine-tuning of laws that hold it together.
Despite the insistence that evolutionists make that they do not address origins, they have to do so. With everything that happens, there is a beginning. The universe has been established as having a beginning. So, in order to be true, macroevolution must satisfactorily answer these questions:
How Did Life Begin?
Is Any Form of Life Really Simple?
Where Did the Instructions Come From?
Has All Life Descended From a Common Ancestor?
The answers to these questions cannot be shown to be in favor of Darwinian or macroevolution.
Some amino acids have been formed in the lab, but life also needs specific lipids, proteins, carbohydrates and nucleic acids arranged in homochiral structures.
The idea that this can be done in a primordial earth without a predetermined pattern is not logical.
The instructions to do this cannot be determined by chance because the probability of such a development never happening by chance is greater than the estimated number of particles in the universe.
The fossil record reveals sudden appearances of major body structures with no intermediate links.
Atheism and macroevolution do not, and cannot, explain it. There are no non-intelligent forms of natural selection found in the universe. The forces of current microevolutionary activity are very similar to intelligence.
With a house, there is an architect who designed it and a builder. You cannot even make a pot without clay and a potter who knows what a pot looks like.

Most Christians do not deny any facts of science. Jesus Christ founded one Church, said it was to remain one, and promised that one Church the fullness of God's truth until the end of time. As a result of that divine guarantee of truth, the teaching of that one Church (which includes well over half of all Christians) never conflicts with natural truths revealed by science. Truth cannot conflict with truth.

Only a few... the majority of Christians understand how science work... but those few are the "special" ones

Considering about 65% of the world's Christians are either Catholic or Orthodox, only about 35% are protestant (and not even all protestants deny evolution), evolution deniers worldwide are in very small minority of Christians.
