Both Switzerland and the United States are highly affluent societies and rank consistently among the top five countries in the world in per capita income, both are Western democracies, both are highly urbanized, and both are highly industrialized.

American student acceptance of evolution is far from uniform, even when students experience instruction in the relevant scientific methods and data. But, excellent science teaching alone cannot be expected always to lead to rejecting creationism.

Unsurprisingly, survey results indicate that Texas biology and biological anthropology faculty with expertise in an evolutionary area strongly support teaching “just evolution” (100%; N = 54) and not creationism/intelligent design. Importantly, they do not think that religious faith is incompatible with acceptance of evolutionary biology (91%; N = ...

Creationist beliefs were associated with religious and social conservatism. Pseudoarchaeological beliefs were somewhat related to age and locus of control, but not stron...

The research reported is based on an analysis of anonymous questionnaire data received from 72 Ss who were students at a southern public university. Ss filled out questionnaires at their leisure and returned them in sealed envelopes. A wide range of sexual behaviors and fantasies were self-reported by Ss including oral-genital sex, genital sex, hom...
Article
The central hypotheses of this study were developed to test the assertion that adolescents maintain a separate and distinct set of values and norms from adults on a number of dimensions. The dimensions on which the adults and adolescents were assumed to differ were derived from a review of the works of Parsons, Eisenstadt, Bronfenbrenner, Coleman,...
