Voices for Evolution.
McCollister, Betty, Ed.
The creation/evolution controversy can be best thought of as a contest over control of a portion of educational policy. Scientists do not dispute the right of fundamentalist Christians to believe that Genesis is a history and a science textbook. The difficulty arises when fundamentalists seek to bring their sectarian religious faith into biology classes in public schools as legitimate science. Contained in this collection are the policy statements of 68 organizations on the topic of this controversy. Scientific, religious, and educational organizations from around the world and the United States in particular, representing many faiths and points of view are included. (CW)
