Evolution Stickers Gone for Good

As more scientists come around to the creation side, more and more facts are coming out that destroy the myth of Evolution. Did you know man and Dinosaur walked the earth at the same time? What was the canopy made out of that protected the earth before the deluge??

Evolution Stickers Gone for Good

Post#1 » Sat Jan 13, 2007 12:51 am

I'm sure it would be ... could be ... and very well may become perfectly acceptable to teach alternate theories of human "creation" such as "space brother" aliens mixing their DNA with apes ....

.... but, it just kills me that the mere mention of a supreme Creator is so taboo that there can be absolutely no reference at all. How absurd. This isn't a push to have Theological dogma shoved down student's throats. However, it should be considered pre-meditated intellectual murder for squashing free thought and brainwashing our kids into accepting a proven fallacy. There is not one iota of proof that life spontaneously erupted and so easily changed genetic make-up hundreds, if not thousands of times to produce the entire zoological catalog of species we have today.

Archaeologist/Author Jonathan Gray (*** PB note - serious research touts bold claims. I love this guy's work) delivers a superb explanation of the sheer statistical impossibility of this based on the need for a precise combination of amino acids and chromosones. Missing a single piece of this microscopic formula is enough to prevent life from springing forth.

The probability of dead or inanimate matter producing even one simple, basic, itty bitty, bottom of the bargain barrell living cell is something outrageous like 1 in a trillion billion gazillions (formula is an approximation - give or take a few huge numbers).

Check out Gray's phenomenal discoveries.

Evolution Stickers Gone for Good in Cobb County

School officials in Cobb County, Georgia, yesterday agreed to drop their 4-year attempt to tell high school biology students that evolution is only a "theory." Local school officials had fought a ruling by a federal judge to remove stickers that they had placed on textbooks, but yesterday, they threw in the towel, pledging to adhere to the state science curriculum and also to pay $167,000 in legal fees to the plaintiffs. In return, the five parents who brought the suit agreed to drop any further legal action against the school district.
"The case is done, and they have agreed never again to put stickers in the textbooks," says Debbie Seagrave, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union's Georgia affiliate, which represented the parents in Selman v. Cobb County. School board chair Teresa Plenge said the district decided to forgo "the distraction and expense of starting all over with more legal actions and another trial."

The legal battle began after the school board embraced the arguments of parents who felt the teaching of evolutionary theory unfairly neglected the biblical story of creation. The board voted in September 2002 to apply stickers to 35,000 textbooks warning that "evolution is a theory, not a fact, regarding the origin of living things" and that "this material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully and critically considered." In 2004, several parents sued the school board in federal court, and last year, District Judge Clarence Cooper ordered the stickers removed on the grounds that the language amounted to an unconstitutional endorsement of a religious belief (ScienceNOW, 14 January 2005). An appellate court rejected the school board's appeal, saying it lacked sufficient information to issue a ruling, and remanded the case to the district court.

An attorney for the school board, Linwood Gunn, says schools officials never intended to start a controversy with the stickers. "The sticker was really just an effort to navigate through the minefield that is this controversy," he says. Still, Gunn says, the district court's decision was "bad law," so it was worth settling the case to have the judgment set aside.
