    A little background. We have had many school boards in Georgia cave in to the religous whackos in the last decade over putting labels on all Biology books concerning evolution.
    "Evolution is a theory only and there are other theories that are in the scientific community concerning the origins of life" type BS was on all Biology in many school districts.
    I know, this stuff is so crazy but remember we are in Georgia where folks would believe the Spaghetti Monster is to be worshipped first and foremost if their preacher or Republican representative told them so. Science be damned.
    Well sports fans, the creationists are backagain under the disguise of "intelligent design" claiming that there beliefs are science.
    Now anyone with just a high school education knows full well, yet many will not publicly admit it because of worrying about getting the business in Sunday school, that creationism and intelligent design is not science but they keep plowing forward even if it is with a one legged mule after the Dover Pa. case.
    Yesterday our Governor Sonny "Doesn't" Perdue announced that he, and his power house Republican buddies in the Legislature, want to make the State School Superintendent an appointed position. The religous right is behind it. Evolution is and has been their main target.
    More to come folks.

    And these are the same people who want to build nuclear power plants? They delegitimize science, yet want to depend on scientists? Oh those scientists. Damn dirty liberal elitists. Can't live with 'em and can't live without 'em.

    Gravity is just a theory too


    Why do things fall to earth? Because God wants them to

    Gravity is a 100% proven theory that has been scientifically verified and can be repeated.

    The so called pseudo theory of evolution has not been proven, nor is it a verifiable fact that can be repeated in the lab..

    Sunni, have you ever heard of the scientific method?
    The theory of evolution has held up to EVERY test under the scientific method. The same as the theory of gravity.
    So could you please inform us how the theory of evolution differs, under what scientific method trials it has not been proven fact and what verifiable facts the theory of gravity has that the theory of evolution does not have.
    Evolution is a theory and creationism is a belief.
    Science is a bitch ain't it?

    I respect people's belief in their religion....however...this creationary theory has been proven to be hogwash numerous times by sound scientific data. Anyone advocating that their children be taught this in a public school should be found guilty as UNFIT parents.
