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

Agree with PR. Not sure we can read much into this survey other than that the message of 'teach the controversy' is not being dissmissed out of hand by our esteemed teaching fraternity.

That being said, a close chum of mine told me how his A-level biology teacher would tell them during lessons which had anything to do with evolution that it was 'all bollocks' and that 'God did it'. Surely, using this teacher's position, that would make most if not all of his subject bollocks. Raising the question, why chose to teach it in the first place?

If they asked a more direct question about belief in creationism I wonder how much of a minority opinion the teacher at my friend's alma mater would have.
