Articles in the Evolution and those who can’t cope with it Category
This is an amusing video fisking of a Fox News "intelligent design" love-in that was broadcast recently.
The graphs, consider the graphs of shame! New research shows that people who go to church regularly and/or Republican are most likely to be evolution deniers:
This is a great resource. Children often have trouble conceptualising the huge timescales involved in the development and evolution of life on Earth, in fact, many adults have trouble as well. So have a go yourself and point your mouse and slide through evolution.
Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear, we’ve already had in the last week the sight of three Republican contenders for the US Presidency admit they don’t "believe" in evolution. Now look at this pickle Senator McCain has got himself into over teaching creationism in…yes you’ve guessed it school science lessons. Melissa Rogers reports:
"Senator John McCain’s staff answers some of the Hotline’s questions
about McCain’s views on evolution, creationism, intelligent design, and
their places in elementary and secondary public school education.
Here’s the bottom line, as described by the Hotline:
believes in evolution, personally believes that :"intelligent design"
"creationism" shouldn’t be taught in SCIENCE class, but is willing to
leave that decision up to the states, ultimately, and also, believes
that students should be exposed to the theory elsewhere, presumably in
religion or social studies class."
As with David Cameron Senator McCain seems to think truth should be devolved to local committees vulnerable to capture by religious activists – leadership certainly is not the word that comes to mind.
