Eugenie Scott: Divine Design
While a majority of Americans call themselves Christian, [Scott] said the opposition to teaching evolution comes from a small percentage calling themselves "Born Again Christians."
Many of them, she said, want teachings to include the possibility that the world was created by "Divine Design," but they don't say what the designer was."There are efforts to get various kinds of Creationism in our schools," she said.
"And there's an effort to get evolution out of curriculum. Some teachers feel inhibited about teaching evolution, so they don't."
