So you want to teach biology, eh?

Virginia's having second thoughts about certifying prospective biology teachers graduating from Liberty Baptist College there. The state decided to hold up the process after the Rev. Jerry Falwell, of Moral Majority fame and founder of the college, said recently, ''We want to see hundreds of our graduates teaching creationism. Of course, they'll be teaching evolution, but teaching why it's invalid and why it's foolish.'' The state also is looking into a college catalog statement saying the purpose of the biology teacher's program is ''to show the scientific basis for Biblical creationism.'' Liberty Baptist threatens to sue if teacher certification is denied.

Because of reciprocity agreements, teachers certified by Virginia can teach in 30 other states.m
