>>If a professor teaches evolution, that's
hardly extreme, yet it is portrayed as one-sided, as
if creationism were mainstream science. <<
You only have the above statement 50% correct. Most school districts that have become very outspoken about their science curriculum are requiring that evolution be taught as a theory along side others that explain the origins of life. The former Soviet Union is an example of a country under Communist ideology that demanded full discussion of Darwinian evolution without any reference to "relgion". If a full blown political movement could not maintain the teaching of Darwinism, then I doubt the time is ripe for eliminating creationism from the curriculum in a country which abides by a Democratic philosophy.
