Evolution Creation Debate
Tuesday, June 20, 2006
Katharine Jefferts Schori, Bishop of Nevada, was elected June 18 to head the Episcopal Church. She becomes the first female head of an Anglican denomination anywhere in the world.
She was raised a Roman Catholic, is a qualified pilot and graduated in marine biology with a doctorate specialization in squids and oysters.
On the Evolution Creation debate, she said: "Evolution most definitely should be taught in school. It's a well-tested premise and the best model that fits the data available. Creationism can't make that claim. I believe in the creeds. They say God created the world, but they don't say how."
