Dawkins is fascinating. He never ceases to amaze me. And, Alabama hasn't changed one bit, nor Tennessee. They taught us with those truth "inserts" and I did not learn about evolution until college, inspired by a particular Microbiology class. The topic: bacteria's growing resistance to antibiotics and what was happening. I was amazed and said to the teacher, "That sounds an awful lot like evolution in action?" She replied, "Well, yes, it is like evolution." I was surprise that after she made this statement, she had to inform the class that evolution is not a "bad word". I was mortified that she had to make this statement to a classroom full of people getting ready to go into the health field. Watching Dawkins sketch the "Physic surgeon" bit, now I'm more than terrified. Bloody christ...literally
