The map above is from Slate where they have plotted all the thousands of schools in America which take some form of public tax payer money to teach Creationism.  Far from confirming that this hapless nonsense is just taught in some back-woods shack of rural misery the map shows that all across the country schools are taking public money to peddle anti scientific, anti intellectual nonsense.

The colour code is Green for schools in the public system in a state that permits the teaching of Creationism.  Orange is for schools that teach creationism and accept tax-funded vouchers or scholarships.  Finally Red is those Responsive Education charter schools using a creationist curricula.
