Controversy Concerning "Creation Science" Vs. Evolution Still Goes On

It has been more than eighty years since Clarence Darrow and William Jennings Bryan argued the case in Tennessee about the teaching of evolution in public schools.
Amazingly, the battle continues into 2009 as school districts around the country still come under attack for teaching science instead religious mythology in school.
Proponents of this phony so called "creation science" are basically saying that the science of evolution and natural selection is so complicated that they don't understand it, therefore it must have been done by some outside party, some sort of sentient being that must have done this.
Their argument is a thinly veiled attempt to force the teaching of religious dogma in public schools. This is an attempt to circumvent U.S. Supreme Court decisions which enforce the constitutional separation of church and state.
School boards must resist this misguided attempt. Our students already are lagging in science education, we sure don't want to put them further behind.
