Yes. I recall that a survey of high school biology teachers recently showed that about 1/3 of them were creationists. Two well-organized attempts to legislate equal time for creation "science" in the public schools have gone down in flames, but there are still some teaching it without a state-level requirement to do so. (Schools teaching creationism is a topic of concern which is frequently discussed in _NCSE Reports_. Write to the National Center for Science Education -- NCSE / P.O. Box 9477 / Berkeley, CA 94709 -- and ask for a sample issue of the publication.) -- Chris Stassen 408-943-0630 stassen@alc.com
