The Theory of Evolution - Accepted, based on all available evidence and continuous testing for close to 200 years, by 98% of all scientist in related fields of study as the best explanation for the diversity of life on the planet. It is also widely accepted by people of all religions worldwide simply because the evidence is overwhelming and undeniable.

Intelligent Design/Creationism - Being pushed as science onto an unsuspecting public by a small, but very vocal, minority of fundamental evangelical Christians... but then, Intelligent Design is not about religion, is it?

F*cking morons

I find it frightening that parents can dictate and limit a child’s education based on nothing but their personal faith in goddidit by magic out of nothing.

How are these children going to get on in the word should for example they arrive at a job interview keen and ready to go but confused about what is fact and what is faith.
