Texbook disclaimer stickers are here. Bioethicists remain oddly silent on the issue of teaching evolution in schools. Given the renewed efforts of creationists to both discredit evolution and to have creationism taught as science rather than as religion this paucity of comment is inexcusable. This website nicely captures the dangers that await high school kids when those in bioethics fail to comment on one of the core ethical challenges facing biomedicine–that its foundational theory ought not be taught in American schools as science! – Art Caplan
UPDATE: polls confirm that most Americans adhere to at least some creationist views.
