How do creationists explain why the vast majority of the world’s scientists are convinced by the evidence for evolution?

I’ve heard explanations from creationists that usually boil down to either researcher’s incompetence (they’re brainwashed by universities; they’re too focused on their own fields to know what’s really going on; they’re deluding themselves; they’re just not very bright), or conspiracies of varying magnitude (they’re all lying to get big grant money; they’re lying because they’re godless and want to drag everyone down; they’re lying because if they don’t tow the party line then their careers will be over).

I’ve been in science education for a long time, so the way people respond to science has always interested me. I’m just curious how people in this forum respond to state of the world’s scientists.

+Timothy Chapman That's a neat poll, but I don't think it quite addresses what Johnathan is talking about.  Francis Collins is actually an example of a Christian who also believes in evolution.

This page is probably more representative of what he's talking about: http://www.pewforum.org/2009/11/05/public-opinion-on-religion-and-science-in-the-united-states/

However, the poll questions are not even representative of what biblical creationists actually believe.  The only option that's not grand-scale evolution or 'I don't know' is "humans and other living creatures have existed in their present form since the beginning of time."  This would seem to imply fixity of species which is not an honest representation of our beliefs.

Still, I don't think Darwinism is nearly as ubiquitous as the NCEE (they are really only concerned with the historical claim of evolution - not operational science) would have one believe.  Even many secular evolutionists are talking about the weakness of the Neo-Darwinian mechanism of mutations with their purported magical abilities.
