Georgia Shuns Evolution. Like You Couldn't Guess.

Georgia may shun 'evolution' in schools

Really, it's getting embarrassing around here.

New middle and high school science standards proposed by state Schools Superintendent Kathy Cox strike references to "evolution" and replace them with the term "biological changes over time," a revision critics say will further weaken learning in a critical subject.

I'm suggesting that Georgia students be taught that most people evolve, but that here in Georgia, that doesn't happen.

Cripes, must the Scopes "Monkey Trial" happen all over again? And if so, where in the heck are we going to find Clarence Darrow & H.L. Mencken? Please, no one say Johnnie Cochran and someone from the Midnight Star....
