Educators, Scholars Divided On Teaching Alternatives To Evolution

"OKLAHOMA CITY (AP): As it did 81 years ago in a small Tennessee town, Charles Darwin's theory of evolution is dividing educators, scholars and theologians as the Oklahoma Legislature debates whether alternative theories on the origin of life should be taught in public school science classes.

Legislation that would authorize teachers to discuss "the full range of scientific views on the biological or chemical origins of life'' and allow students to express their views in class has been approved by the state House and sent to the Senate. "
