ALABAMA ACADEMY OF SCIENCE The Executive Committee of the Alabama Academy of Science hereby records its opposition to legislation to introduce "scientific creationism" into the Alabama classroom. Furthermore, the Executive Committee of the Alabama Academy of Science believes that the introduction of classroom subject content through the political process not only violates academic freedom of the subject specialist to determine relevant and scientifically sound concepts, but also represents an inappropriate and potentially dangerous precedent for American education. Adopted by a vote of 24 in favor to 7 opposed; copy hand- dated 1981. ====================================================================== The above is reprinted with permission from the book, _Voices for Evolution_, edited by Betty McCollister, published by the National Center for Science Education, Inc. (NCSE). This book, a compendium of resolutions, statements, and position papers from many scientific, educational, and religious organizations, can be ordered for $10 from NCSE at P.O. Box 9477, Berkeley, CA 94709.
