Varieties of Creationism
Organized opposition to the teaching of evolution began in the 1920s and continues to the present, although scientific debate about common descent of all living things was over by the 1880s. As discussed in this article by Eugenie C. Scott, there are many varieties of creationism which reject evolution.
Anti-evolution episodes can be small or large, short or enduring, largely private or largely public. In some cases, these episodes result in legal battles and lawsuits, even reaching the United States Supreme Court. See our special section on Creationism and the Law to learn about major legal cases concerning evolution education.

Becoming Aware of Creationism
The first I ever heard of creationism was in a mailing I received from the Creation Science Quarterly in the late 1960's. It was a call for papers supporting the biblical account of creation. I saved the announcement in a file folder called “Funny Mail,” but have since lost it. I wondered what kind of journal would limit its contributions to those supporting only one conclusion?
A poll of scientists' opinions on "intelligent design", commissioned by the University of Cincinnati and Case Western Reserve University, was presented in October, 2002. Here are the results:
