re: plea for help
- It's a quiet night and I'm web-surfing.
This is kind of interesting: http://22.214.171.124/articles/paper1/paper1.htm
This isn't as detailed as you would like, but the links might be helpful
These folks gave papers at this Conference
<http://www.aaas.org/spp/dspp/dbsr/EPIC.htm> at the Field Museum for AAAS.
They might be worth contacting:
Historical Perspectives on Evolution and Religion - Ronald Numbers,
Department of the History of Medicine, Center for Health Science-Medical
School, University of Wisconsin-Madison
"Neo-Darwinism in Theological Perspective" - John Haught, Department of
Theology, Georgetown University

Darwin's Forgotten Defenders : The Encounter Between Evangelical Theology
and Evolutionary Thought
by David N. Livingstone
There are apparently several volumes (!) from Garland titled "Creationism in
20th Century America".
Let us know what you find after your trip to the library!
(as you pointed out in the case of some of your Catholic students, a
surprisingly large number of denominations have neutral to pro-evolution
stances but seem to have had mixed success in communicating them to their
members, the folks with creationist beliefs seem to be more numerous than
one would expect from surveying the denominations' official statements)
Thanks Again! Discussion is what the list is here for!
