Teaching Theories: The Evolution-Creation Controversy.
Root-Bernstein, Robert; McEachron, Donald L.
American Biology Teacher, v44 n7 p413-20 Oct 1982
Discusses what is scientific theory and religious belief, who decides this, and how these issues affect views on whether creationism and evolution are scientific and should be taught in schools. Argues that only evolution qualifies as scientific theory (and should be taught) and that students should distinguish between religious/scientific explanations. (Author/JN)
