The article “The Creationist Down the Hall: Does It Matter When Teachers Teach Creationism?” by Randy Moore and Sehoya Cotner is a scientific study over college freshmen’s views toward evolution and creationism and how they were taught in their high school biology class. Several results suggested from the study include that an unexpected amount of students were ok with creationism, students’ past experiences with the way creationism and evolution was dealt with in their high school highly influenced their views on these two topics, and biology majors and nonmajors views on creationism and evolution were similar. In addition, creationist teachers seem to be more common than previously thought.

This sounds like an article that provides a useful overview of the current status of creationism/evolutionary theory in our science classrooms. How does it fit into the other articles on this subject you've looked at?
