In February, 1977 a bill (H.F. 154) was introduced in the Iowa House of Representatives that read as follows: "If a public school district offers courses which teach pupils about the origin of humankind and which include scientific theories relating to origin, instruction shall include consideration of the creation theory as supported by modern sciences."' In May 1977 the Urbandale School District made a written appeal to the Iowa Department of Public Instruction to consult with experts in the science community to determine if the evidence used to support the creationist theory was credible and should be made available to students as an example of good scientific investigation.
