Segments of the Fundamentalist Religious of South Carolina’s government proposed legislation to purchase only school text books that deterred the teaching of evolution. On June 12th, 2014 the Antievolution proposal legislation was rejected in South Carolina.
Bottom line, the extreme religious need to get over the fact of their anti-science fact denial. Man, as a species, was not placed here on earth from heaven by angels as some religions would teach, but rose up into Homo Sapiens, the humanoid primate that he is today, from angry ancestral apes who were ever evolving in intelligence….. some more so than others. Thus evolution is not static, and Homo Sapiens continues to evolve even today.
Sanity prevailed and the South Carolina state board of education rejected the Education Oversight Committee’s proposal to revise the state science standards to require students to “Construct scientific arguments to discredit Darwinian natural selection.”
