I’ve written a paper for the “Outlook on Evolution and Society” section of the journal Evolution, “Science, religion, and society: the problem of evolution in America.” They’ve agreed to free public access since it’s about education, and you can download it free at the link. Be aware of two things: 1) this is the accepted manuscript, and I’ll be making some stylistic corrections in it before it’s published, and 2) the paper was reviewed, so the facts and assertions in it have been vetted.
As you’ll see, it doesn’t pussyfoot around, but places the blame for evolution denial squarely on the shoulders of religion (something that accommodationists all know but are loath to admit), and then discusses ways to deal with religiously-based opposition.
UPDATE: I wasn’t aware this was behind a paywall; they may be keeping it there until the final draft is published. You can access it through your library if they have a subscription, and I’ll see if I can make a pdf available to readers.
