Enough of our coddling ignorance.
Enough of our mealy-mouthed, passive acquiescence to the willful denial of reality.
Enough of our society shooting itself in the foot by watering down our science education, and our discussion of science in the public and political sphere by mixing in myth and pseudoscience.
There is no controversy. There is no debate. There is no real "other side" to this discussion.
Modern evolutionary theory is one of the most wel-developed, well-supported scientific theories we have. It as much settled science as science can get.
Evolution is a fact, in that it is the label for a phenomena we can directly and indirectly observe.
Evolutionary theory is not somehow inferior to fact. Indeed, it is in many ways superior to the level of fact, in that it is made up of facts, and is tested and confirmed, repeatedly, against reality.
If your religion claims that evolution isn't true, then, when it comes to this subject, your religion is wrong.
We should stop letting this nonsense slide. Our nation is competing against highly technological, committed, dedicated workers from other countries. We aren't doing ourselves any favors by mixing myth with our science.
