The article discusses the issue about the evolution against scientific creation in the American education in the U.S. It states that more biology students are entering the university with entrenched beliefs about creation after attending a growing number of small religious schools that teach the biblical account in science classes. The author emphasized that schools are not growing because of their superlative academic records. He believed that science and philosophy teachers should work together to ensure that all aspects of the subjects are thoroughly examined.
