Chapter four interrupts the analysis of the ASA and RSCF in order to review the developments within the creationist movement from the sixties to the eighties. During this period, which witnessed a resurgence of conservatism in both the United States and Great Britain, large numbers of evangelicals became convinced that Christianity required a rejection of evolution. These views were more prevalent in the US, but not absent from the UK. American groups such as the Creation Research Society and British groups such as the Biblical Creation Society succeeded in convincing many churchgoers of the weakness of evolutionary science and of the validity of a straightforward reading of the opening chapters of Genesis.
