← Scientists win place for evolution in primary schools

Like other posters, growing up here in Britain, I've never had a problem with ToE. I didn't know it was evolution, but we had the pre-cambrian with trilobites and then the cambrian with fish, amphibians, reptiles, dinosaurs, birds, mammals. And that was at about age 8-9? No problem, it fitted the known facts. Trilobites died out but something else took their place. Another thing I remember was that whilst the amphibians ruled the animal kingdom, all those swamps and wet forests very nicely turned into the fossil fuels we love to burn so much these days.

As long as the confusionists don't get in the way, the basics of evolution are very simple.
