Submission + - Florida to Teach Evolution as `Scientific Theory'

TheMiddleRoad writes: The Miami Herald http://www.miamiherald.com/news/breaking_dade/story/424693.html reports that the Florida Board of Education approved, in a vote of 4 to 3, new standards for teaching evolution, calling it a 'scientific theory'. This is a big step forward since there were no standards for it before. In other news, I hear they've recently accepted the wheel there, and are calling it a 'mechanical thingamajig'. Perhaps soon they will stop burning scientists at the stake for claiming that the Earth is not the center of the universe. Naaah! Please, keep the FSM jokes to a maximum.
