    Watch the creationist gang come scroobling over to pick at evolution. Today their attack will be on Darwin, who is allegedly a god of scientifically-minded people.

    For some reason your comment reminds me of this xkcd comic: http://xkcd.com/1104/

    Actually, Raghead is pretty accurate with his comment. In my neck of the woods, in 2002 stickers were put in science textbooks stating “Evolution is a theory, not a fact, concerning the origin of living things.” The case had to go to court to get the stickers taken out. The county claimed it “fostered critical thinking”. They never got any input from scientists on the wording of the sticker, and the sticker was praised from all sorts of church groups.
    As for me, I am confident that my kids can make their own decision on what makes sense to them, so I will buy them books about evolution and let them figure it out.

    The Biblical story of creation and the “theory” of evolution run side by side – water, fish, animals, humans. Never could understand the big fuss. And if you don’t believe in evolution, you’ve never tried to stay one step ahead of viruses.

    @lightenup

    You must be from the Atlanta area. I grew up in, and still work in the county you are referring to. It’s hard not being christian in the bible belt.

    At least she won’t get sent to the principal’s office for saying it.
    Ms. Erma is a great addition.
