A federal judge says the University of California can deny course credit to applicants from Christian high schools whose textbooks declare the Bible infallible and reject evolution.
Rejecting claims of religious discrimination and stifling of free expression, U.S. District Judge James Otero of Los Angeles said UC's review committees cited legitimate reasons for rejecting the texts - not because they contained religious viewpoints, but because they omitted important topics in science and history and failed to teach critical thinking.

Evolution is the crux of modern biology.Science is a process, creating models/stories to help us understand what we observe, to help us predict.
One of the textbooks used by the Creationists, Biology for Christian Schools, published by Bob Jones University Press, asserts:
The people who have prepared this book have tried consistently to put the Word of God first and science second. To the best of the author’s knowledge, the conclusions drawn from observable facts that are presented in this book agree with the Scriptures. If a mistake has been made (which is probable since this book was prepared by humans) and at any point God’s Word is not put first, the author apologizes.Too many people confuse faith with beliefs.
Not all Christians cling to beliefs without reason. I know. I'm one of them
