This is one reason why keeping religion - ALL religion - out of government is important. And government neutrality on the issue of religion is NOT the functional equivalent of promoting atheism. It is the government taking no sides on the issue of religion, so all may make their protected choice.:
Creation Ministries International -- "The ‘new atheists’ claim that Christianity doesn’t have answers to evolution. This site begs to differ with over 7,000 fully searchable articles—many of them science-based. Keep refuting the skeptics."
It is a credit to the teachers of our land that people can think this - that evolution is a fact. Slow change and mutations ARE a fact, but speciation is not only unproven, all the evidence goes against it.
