Science Now Permitted In Science Textbooks

Cobb County, Georgia, should expect to be destroyed by floods and plagues of locusts and meteors now that they've been forced to remove stickers from the front of high school textbooks that said "We are stupid and proud of it." I mean "This textbook contains material on evolution. Evolution is a theory, not a fact, regarding the origin of living things. This material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully, and critically considered."

The sticker removal began on Tuesday in delayed response to the ruling by a federal appeals judge who took the word "judge" seriously. He ruled in January that the stickers violated the principle of the separation of church and state. See, that's because the idea that "evolution" is somehow less factual than any other thing taught in school is founded not on scientific evidence (which would have evolution as one of the most assuredly factual things taught in school) but on a load of crap inspired by the collected mythology of a bunch of semi-literate desert nomads from 1000 B.C.
