Victory for evolution in Texas
"Pop the champagne corks. The Texas Board of Education has unanimously come down on the side of evolution. In an 8-0 vote, the board today approved scientifically accurate high school biology textbook supplements from established mainstream publishers--and did not approve the creationist-backed supplements from International Databases, LLC."

RE: Victory for evolution in Texas
Hooray! Although I thought this was decided in a case in the 1920's.

While this is a good thing, it saddens me a bit that this was necessarily.

My personal #1 reason that I don't like religion is because I like knowledge! And Religion suppresses knowledge; not just the knowledge unfortunately, but it suppresses the entire drive to understand.
