Violation 4 - Creationism and Intelligent Design


Schools may not teach religious doctrine, including creationism and “intelligent design.” 

The Supreme Court has firmly struck down attempts to prohibit evolution or teach “scientific creationism” in public schools. Epperson, Aguillard. “Intelligent design,” like creationism, is a religious belief and may not be taught in public schools. Kitzmiller. 

No controversy exists in the scientific community regarding evolution, which, like gravity, is a fact. Teaching that there is controversy about the validity of evolution in science class is akin to teaching astrology along with astronomy, or alchemy with chemistry. 

The scientific literacy of students and our nation is at stake.
