← Would you Adam and Eve it? Quarter of science teachers would teach creationism (Response by Dawkins and Jones)

The poll needs to be re-run with much clearer questions. Richard's point-

if 29% of science teachers really think creationism should be taught as a valid alternative to evolution, we have a national disgrace on our hands...

What do these 29% actually think? Until this is cleared up the poll does potentially far more harm than possibly it need. Do they think Creationism valid, potentially valid or an interesting non-starter?

Creationism is a great example of a technically unscientific and therefore valueless theory. Certainly worth a mention en passant.

This poll is shoddy work.
