    Alotta people believe that God caused evolution. Shall we say that in the science classes, as well? Won't happen, will it?

    Reality matches exactly what I say, brother.
    I figured out your problem. You're not seeing the difference between observations and beliefs. Science has no evidence either for or against the idea that evolution was caused by a divine being, therefore such information does not belong in a science class. What science does have is an enormous amount of evidence along several lines of research in favor of the idea that species do evolve.

    There's no scientific evidence of a divine hand in evolution. Creationists will point you towards "evidence," but it always either banks on something unobservable or just plain wrong. (like the banana-human hand thing... banana's are a hybrid created by humans!!)

    However, you'll never hear any science teacher suggest that evolution was caused by God.

    BTW, I don't have a ****ing, "problem".

    No, they're not. Evolution is a theory and anthropogenic global warming is a scientific fact. Ideology is rooted in doctrine, of which neither of those are.

    Clearly you don't know what "theory" means in a Scientific sense.

    And clearly, Evolution and other "theories" like GRAVITY Are certainties, while AGW critics at least have a long-shot. So you not only have it wrong, but backwards on the sureness scale.

    1. Evolution is only a theory. It is not a fact or a scientific law.

    Many people learned in Elementary school that a theory falls in the middle of a hierarchy of certainty -- above a mere hypothesis but below a law. Scientists do Not use the terms that way, however. According to the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), a scientific theory is "a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world that can incorporate facts, laws, inferences, and tested hypotheses." No amount of validation changes a theory into a law, which is a descriptive generalization about nature. So when scientists talk about the theory of evolution -- or the atomic theory or the theory of relativity, for that matter -- they are Not expressing reservations about its truth.

    In addition to the theory of evolution, meaning the idea of descent with modification, one may also speak of the Fact of evolution."..."
    Tell me you're a Holy Book literalist/creationist among your other bizarre opinions.
    This would be 100% in keeping with my statements in other sections.

    I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.
