Evolution and Creation Science

Certain religious fundamentalist organizations are presenting a system of beliefs called creation science which they feel should be taught along with evolution and geology in public schools. They have been very influential in local school boards in advancing their agenda. Are you getting the whole story on the debate over teaching evolution in schools? Is there a true conflict between religion and the science? Do you have to 'check your beliefs' at the door to practice a career in geology and earth science? A great deal of misinformation is circulating the web. Get better insight by checking these links for more information:
