Christian Colleges Teaching How God Created the Earth

Do all Christian colleges teach creationism or intelligent design instead of evolution in their biology classes? Heather J. Ciras has a surpising answer in "Evolution makes the grade at Christian colleges," published in Science & Theology News:

“God created the Earth and he told us why but didn’t tell us how,” says Keith Crandall, a biology professor at Brigham Young University.

Ciras reports that many Christian professors who teach science around the United States are teaching evolution, often with rigor equal to their colleagues at secular colleges. Those who are the most vocal proponents of teaching alternatives to evolution — such as intelligent design — are conservative Christians, she says.
