Legion. An amalgamated journal.


New Scientist reports that a study by political scientists at Pennsylvania State University reveals 16% of high school biology teachers in the United States are creationists.

When Berkman’s team asked about the teachers’ personal beliefs, about the same number, 16% of the total, said they believed human beings had been created by God within the last 10,000 years.

What the New Scientist article failed to include were some other shocking results of the survey.
— 13% of high school algebra teachers double as their schools’ basketball coaches
— 19% of high school Latin teachers drive cars which did not pass state inspection
— 34% of high school English teachers consider Stephen King a “great writer”
— 19% of high school gym teachers wake up crying at night after having dreams in which they are pitching softball underhand
— 4% of high school Vice Principals could kick 73% of their students’ asses
