Tennessee and evolution. Is this the New Scopes trial? Evolution is established science. Take an anthropology class. These religious nuts are clinically insane. Theocracy works well with corporate fascism. Theocratic morons are the useful idiots that let oligarchs kill our democracy.

While challenging current thought is important in order to continue advancement, I'm afraid that this bill isn't being made in the spirit of that. Unfortunately, religious conservatives feel the need to make Tennessee more backward than it already is for the sake of keeping their children completely unexposed to any other school of thought than religion.

Eviloution is merely a theory and not a verified reproducable fact. The scientific method requires evidence and for the results to be scientifically reproducable. Evolution is much more fanciful than Creation. The sheer odds of intelligent design appearing at random is laughable. Evolution is merely speculation whose underpinnings have been undone by practically all scientific findings since the 18th Century.

TN remains a laughingstock of the country because of the stupid things the citizens like Al Gore and the University of TN do to recognize him. Now there's a puzzle palace if there ever was one.

Congrats on stating the obvious that evolution is a theory. No one has ever denied that it is a theory, but you say that as if you suggest that creationism is far more realistic, which is utterly silly. "the sheer odds of intelligent design..." is a stupid comment. You cannot quantify anything regarding a theory that involves a man in the sky willing everything into existence.

Please don't try to use morons like Al Gore to bolster your position. It isn't pretty.
