Worst Answers:

[Can't remember state]: Creationism is equally scientifically accredited as evolution. [Huh?]
Hawaii : "creatism:" (can't even say it right)
Kentucky: No. Too controversial, get people confused.

Best Answers:
#1 Vermont. We know evolution happens with bacteria and viruses becoming resistant. She actually knows something about i.

Masssachusetts: I was taught evolution at a religious school [probably Catholic].
Minnesota: I grew up Catholic, and I was taught evolution so yes. Pope accepts evolution.
Ohio: Yes teach it, you don't necessarily have to agree with it.
South Dakota: Yes, it's basic science, but don't "step on toes of Biblical values" (however you think we do it).

If I were Ms. Virginia:

Yes, I went to BYU and I was taught evolution, it is the consensus of scientific community right now. But we should shut up about the teleology or dysteleogy of evolution. If you're going to teach the ultra-darwinist, nihilist perspective that evolution has no purpose, not even survival, you also need to teach the perspective that evolution is directional and purposeful, that human intelligence was written into the laws of natural selection.
