This is hilarious. If you read the editorializing that went on during the original argument over teaching the theory of evolution and compare it to the current controversy the arguments are near verbatim and reversed. Idiots will always refuse to teach alternate and controversial ideas to students and they will always use the same excuse, "it will confuse them".Some idiot declared a 5,000 year old burial site the burial of a homosexual because the burial ritual differed from normal practices. There was no "Rosetta Stone" allowing the archeologist any evidence of homosexuality, the only evidence was a variance in burial customs. A hundred years ago the site would probably have been thought to be a "shaman", "medicine man" or "witch doctor" of some kind. Uneducated people always allow popular culture to interfere with their interpretation of facts and the process of critical thinking. Today the evolution of man, which is still only a theory, is taught as a fact. The interpretation of archeological and anthropological evidence is biased based on variations in popular culture. In my opinion the average person with an undergraduate degree cannot tell the difference between a fact, "John Doe ran 100 yards in 6 seconds", and an opinion, "John Doe ran fast". How many undergrads think Gravity is a fact? How many insisting we maintain the status quo in the instruction of evolutionary theory will work to challenge a popular belief the way Darwin or Galileo or Einstein did?
