In an article on MSNBC, they state that Georgia wants to strike out the word “evolution” in schools to “biological changes over time.” I object, your honor, I surpassed puberty many years ago. It was horrifying, and the biological changes over me in time was similar to the black plague. One must really wonder, what is offensive about the word, “evolution?” Is it a curse now? I find it hard to believe that someone can swear at you with, “You evil evolution of a pig! Mongrels like you are an evolution to society!”
Now I know that a lot of people are getting their panties in a twist about the theory of Evolution and God (or insert your own deity here), but this is clearly overkill. Science is about truth, there’s no fiction in it. If science teaches us that a fossil is 12 million years old, then by golly it’s 12 million years old, no matter how blue in the face the Bible gets telling us otherwise. If man came from the seas as first a fish, then a monkey, then we need to find out why science tells us that, not why it proves the Bible wrong, or vice versa. The Bible is not a scientific tool, it’s a religious tool. It’s based on faith. Science and religion shouldn’t intermingle on a professional level, only on a personal level. A scientist can be a Christian, and I will applaud any that can be both, for it surely can’t be easy. I have a dear friend who is a microbiologist and a devout Christian, and the man is not only extremely smart, but a good person in every sense of the word. Striking out the word evolution won’t do anything good, it’ll just contribute to the ignorance of kids, and frankly we have enough kids who are ignorant to many facts in the world.
