Creationism in 20th-Century America.
Numbers, Ronald L.
Science, v218 n4572 p538-44 Nov 5 1982
As the crusade to outlaw the teaching of evolution changed to a battle for equal time for creationism, the ideological defenses of that doctrine also shifted, from biblical to scientific grounds. The development of "scientific creationism" is described, focusing on the intellectual leaders of creationism, particularly those claiming scientific expertise. (Author/JN)
