Here are some questions that should be asked of this "brain trust":

What do they do for a living?

Did their chosen career involve schooling beyond high school?

Did their chosen career require a college degree?

How much schooling was in involved in obtaining that degree?

Was it difficult?

Would you think it proper for a high school student with very little actual knowledge of your profession to critique how you do your job?

Now.. ask yourself why you think that would be stupid

This sort of idiocy is why I can no longer consider myself a Republican:
"It seems that we are doing a disservice to our students if we continue to teach evolution as 100 percent fact," Bowers said. "What does it hurt to ask them to look at both sides?"
There is only "one side" when it comes to a scientific argument.

Not necessarily.

It's just that there's only one scientific side to THIS particular argument.

Yes, you are right. I definitely over generalized in this case.
