Evolution at La Sierra
La Sierra University, operated by the Seventh-day Adventists, is in the news for conflict over evolution vs. creationism. As reported in Inside Higher Ed, a biology student completed a paper on creation, but did not meet the professor's standards for describing current scientific understandings. Instead, the paper focused on creationism. The professor awarded it poor marks, the student complained, and now the university president and church leaders have written statements on the issue, and as emails between the student and professor have become public, the dispute has garnered the attention of groups outside the university.
