27. When it comes to religious hot-button issues, it's needed.
Otherwise grade school science education becomes pablum when you can't mention any facts that might torque off the true believers.

And that is the real problem with "Education Nation." They like to talk about how far we drag behind other nations in science education but none dare cross the folks truly responsible.
