Now thinking about how human beings came to exist on Earth, do you, personally, believe in evolution, or not?

Now regard the histograms below:
I do have a little issue with using the rubric 'believe in' when referring to evolution. Whatsoever one's views of the prevailing Deity, evolution seems to have been pretty thoroughly and thoughtfully documented. Critters change over time, due to impingent, pretty constant environmental conditions. Adaptation via genetic innovation = evolution. Duh. Humans are no different from--and are in no way "superior" to--any other species, pond-scum on up (and not hierarchically; rather via taxonomic complexity). This fact--this array of facts--is not a matter of belief. It is indubitable, and irrebuttable. It does not require 'belief', much less 'belief in'. It requires merely an honest attention to experience.
Mebbe that's just me...
