The Jury Is Still Out . . .

even though it has been eighty years since it came back.

Look, folks.  The Earth revolves around the sun.  The Bible is wrong when it says otherwise.  And evolution is real.  The Bible is wrong if it says otherwise.  It is time to face facts.  If your belief in God is so shaky that you have to belief everything in the Bible is literal fact, then your belief in God must be on pretty shaky ground.

Battle on Teaching Evolution Sharpens

WICHITA – Propelled by a polished strategy crafted by activists on America’s political right, a battle is intensifying across the nation over how students are taught about the origins of life. Policymakers in 19 states are weighing proposals that question the science of evolution.

The proposals typically stop short of overturning evolution or introducing biblical accounts. Instead, they are calculated pleas to teach what advocates consider gaps in long-accepted Darwinian theory, with many relying on the idea of intelligent design, which posits the central role of a creator.

The growing trend has alarmed scientists and educators who consider it a masked effort to replace science with theology. But 80 years after the Scopes "monkey" trial — in which a Tennessee man was prosecuted for violating state law by teaching evolution — it is the anti-evolutionary scientists and Christian activists who say they are the ones being persecuted, by a liberal establishment.

"Persecuted"?  Yes, because they cannot spread LIES in public schools, they are being "persecuted".  How ridiculous!
