Evolution could not explain why animals
might be adapted to their habitat in
a primary project.

"It might upset the local christian community."
Don't mention 'Evolution'

This attitude in Primary Schools is
probably rather more widespread

It's that 'observation' criterion.
Not only that but repeated 'observation"
even then
there's an allowance for new information.

Whereas religion only requires
or is it
just reading a book.
