    Evolution is a bad word...

    ...So says the Georgia superintendent.

    Rest of the article here: http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tm.../ap/20040130/ap_on_re_us/striking_evolution_3

    Forgive me for showing Yahoo around here, it seems everyone despises it so. Oh well. *Runs off.*

    So let me get this straight. A bunch of parents don't want their children to be taught evolution, so they plan on changing it's name but still intend to fully teach it...

    So "evolution" is a buzzword is it...

    We have a word in the english language that means 'biological changes over time', this whole enterprise is intellectually bankrupt!

    If you dont want your kids hearing the word evolution just send them to some religious school? That's pretty goofy that they can still teach it, but aren't saying the word.

    I think some of you are missing the point. This was discussed in the other thread on this topic.....

    There is a difference between evoltution and "Theory of Evolution." Evolution isnt a theory, its a fact, things evolve over time to adapt to their surroundings. "The Theory of Evolution" is a document written detailing that man comes directly from apes/monkeys.

    The orange stuff is a paraphrase of what Seargant said in the other thread.

    If I were in that school, I think I'd start wearing evolution shirts and start singing the evolution song (that I would have written for the occasion [but I didn't write it because I don't go to that school]).

    You could get the WWE Evolution shirt and sing the WWE Evolution entrance song by Motorhead.

    It's a fact that some of our southern brethern have not adjusted well to the 21st or even 20th century for that matter. Check out the Georgia state flag from 1956-2001. http://www.50states.com/flag/gaflag_old.htm

    As you can see, they never did quite get over the burning of Atlanta by Sherman in '64 ... 1864 that is ...

    Damn Yankees and their "War of Northern Aggression" :teeth:

    They did construct a nice stone carving in tribute to Confederate Generals Lee, Jackson and President Davis at Stone Mountain: http://www.cviog.uga.edu/Projects/gainfo/photogallery/htmpages/stonemt9.htm

    Unfortunately, it was the Klu Klux Klan that constructed it. :eek:

    Ah well, they did give us the "Georgia Peach". Ted Turner, and the reason for "Gone with the Wind".

    Dang old Southern Pride ...

    Little wonder that evolution is a foul word for some down there.
