Map - Evolution

This map shows where, and to what standard the theory of evolution is taught in schools throughout the USA. As you can see there are still many states that refuse to ignore the ideas from the bible which claim that God made the Earth and everything on it.
It is interesting to see that the 'red' states are not just located in the so called 'bible belt' of America but are instead spread throughout the country. The theory of evolution is a disputed subject in parts of the US due to strong religious beliefs. However, the religious states of North and South Carolina scored satisfactory which shows that even though they are located on the 'bible belt', they still believe that the teaching of this theory is important.
