Creationism in American Schools

Creationism in American Schools June 27, 2014

Did you know just a week ago Britain banned the teaching of creationism is their academic and free schools? This was huge news for science and a major blow to creationism.

This led me to wonder why, if such laws are basically the same in the US since the courts have ruled that both creationism and intelligent design are nothing but religious teachings and have no place in public schools.

So how then are we still debating these ideas in 2014 and why are our schools finding ways to sneak these theologies into the classroom?

Well, the religious right and the Republican Party are very creative, and today in my latest article for AlterNet, I look at how this is happening and peer into the 5 worst offenders in the US.
